Sheet and Plate Size SpecificationStandard Stock Size Sheets and Plates - Typical: 36" x 96", 36" x 120", 48" x 96", 48" x 120"

  • The width and length will be standard mill shearing plus any stretch of the material by perforating, unless otherwise specified. For carbon steel sheets or plates, tolerances as set by the American Iron and Steel Institute.

Sheets and Plates Resheared After Perforating - Tolerances of the width and length will be:

  • For thickness lighter than 1/8" : ±1/32"
  • For thickness 1/8" to 3/16" incl. : ±1/16"
  • For thickness heavier than 3/16" to 1/2" incl. : ±1/8"
  • For thickness heavier than 3/16" to 1/2"- check with your perforator.
  • If special re-square tolerances are required, consult your perforator.

Coiled Stock - Please submit specifications.

Remaly can perforate materials in light and heavy gauges. If you require closer tolerances than standard, check with Remaly. Whatever your requirement is, let Remaly be your guide and your guarantee of quality production.
Thickness of Metals
  • Steel - Use "Manufacturers' Standard Gage for Steel Sheets."
  • Stainless Steel - Use the U.S. Standard Gage Table.
  • Monel - Use the U.S. Standard Gage Table.
  • Copper, Brass or Muntz - Use the B&S Gage Table.
  • Aluminum - Use the B&S Gage Table.
Available Perforation Patterns and Material Formats View  Available Perforation Patterns and Material Formats
Available Perforation Patterns and Material Formats
Remaly has the flexibility to create:

  • Round Perforations - Staggered (60 degree pattern) is standard. Variations include 45 degree staggered, and Straight Line Pattern.
  • Square Perforations - Staggered Pattern or Straight Line Pattern.
  • Slotted Perforations- Side Staggered, End Staggered, or Straight Lines. Slotted Perforations will be round end slots; specify if square end slots are required.
  • Special Shapes and Designer Perforations
    • Decorative patterns in Grecian, Cane, and Octagon Cane are common.
    • Perfboard (1/4" holes on 1" straight centers)
    • Alternate Feeds
    • Spread Centers

We can also create a combination pattern of various types of perforations based on customer request.

Perforation patterns can be staggered, straight line pattern perforations or 45 degree pattern perforations. Remember, perforated material can be purchased in stock sheet, special size sheets, panels, rolls, belts, cut to size, special slit coil completely fabricated and finished.

  • Staggered Perforations, both Round and Square - Direction of the stagger will normally be the short dimension of the sheet, as illustrated. The straight row of holes is normally parallel to long dimension of sheet.
  • Slotted Perforations - The long dimension of the slots can be furnished parallel with either the width or length of the sheet in most cases -check with your perforator.

Spacing for large perforations will be designated by either Centers of Perforations, or by the Open Area required. Spacing for small perforations will be designated by either Centers, or Open Area, or if more practical, by the Number of Perforations to the Square Inch.
MarginsPerforated Stock Size Sheets and Plates. The long sides of the sheet will be supplied with minimum margins. The short sides of the sheet will have either minimum margins or no margins. (Refer to Fig. #3)
Unfinished end pattern is standard in the industry


Sheets and plates Resheared after Perforating. Special margins are available to specifications but they must carry a tolerance within the limits of the perforating tool.

Unfinished end pattern is standard in the industry. Note: See illustration of "Finished End Pattern" (Fig. #2)
Sheets and plates Resheared after Perforating
and "Unfinished End Pattern." (Fig. #1)
Perforated Stock Size Sheets and Plates
Flatness of Sheets and PlatesIn the majority of requirements, Perforated Sheets or Plates can be furnished to AISI flatness tolerances. (No more than 1/2" on 16 ga. sheets to 60" wide.)

If your job should fall under one of the following categories, it is recommended that you discuss the requirement with your perforator:

  • Perforated Sheets with extra wide margins.
  • Blank Areas required within the perforated area.
  • Perforated Sheets with very large percentage of open area.
  • Heavy gage metal in relation to the size of the perforation.
  • Special Alloys.
  • Stretcher Leveled Sheets.
Standard Hook FlangesStandard Hook Flanges

Unless otherwise specified, hook flanges may be supplied for the above standards.
Benefits of Perforated MaterialsPerforated metal is easier and less expensive to form, weld, and fabricate. Borders of most any width on four, three, two or one side are available. This reduces the cost of welding and reduces accidents in handling. No extra edging is necessary as in other materials.
Applications that use Perforated MetalsPerforated materials have multiple uses in various industries such as:

  • Metal Perforation and Fabrication Industry
  • Anthracite Coal and Quarry Industries
  • Acoustical Industry
  • Architectural Industry
  • Artistic Industry
  • General Manufacturing and Fabrication Industry
  • Landscaping Industry
  • Transportation Industry

They can be used for/as:

  • Architectural Concepts
  • Artistic Displays
  • Mining and Drilling Operations
  • Vibrator Screens
  • Hammermill Screens
  • Custom Chutes
  • Bar Gratings
  • Rolled Assemblies
  • Conveyor Lifters and Flights
  • Countless other applications.
Packaging and Shipping InformationOur clients have come to expect that we will ship their orders completely and accurately within one week. 90% of orders filled are processed and shipped within 10 days. Remaly Manufacturing Company is located in Tamaqua, Pennsylvania near the junction of State Routes 309 and 209. We have been serving our customers from this location in the metal perforation and fabrication industry since 1865. While we also use common carrier freight handlers, for quick delivery our own trucks are within a short drive to Scranton, Easton, Lancaster or Bloomsburg.
Production VolumeRemaly specializes in small to medium perforated panel and screen orders. However, we are capable of increasing our capacity to accommodate larger orders. Please contact us with any perforated material request.
When Ordering Perforated Metals:When the material is to be furnished by the customer, use the terminology "Perforating and Processing Only." All material so furnished must be of perforating quality.

The flexibility of round, square, slot and other special perforations make it impractical to list every combination. The table below showing I.P.A. numbered perforations are common and are considered standard. For complete information on available patterns, contact your Remaly supplier.

Ask about Specialty Patterns such as perfboard (1/4" holes on 1" straight centers), alternate feeds or spread centers. These offer different visual effects and serve to reduce open area. Various widths of bars (unperforated strips) may be left in the pattern to assist in mounting.

Decorative patterns in Grecian, Cane, and Octagon Cane, are common. Some companies have developed their own particular decorative patterns and within the I.P.A. is the greatest variety of design in the industry. Functional patterns can also be decorative.

Standard stock or standard dies are important to your planning. It should be clearly understood however, that any perforated design can become as economical as a listed pattern if the quantity or potential is great enough.
