Fora Health: Creating Beauty with Perforated Metal Privacy Panels

Collaborating with organizations that are deeply committed to community well-being is a source of immense pride for Roy Manufacturing. When tasked with manufacturing a product that aligns seamlessly with Fora Health’s mission and perfectly meets their needs, the sense of purpose and accomplishment becomes even more profound. By crafting perforated metal privacy panels that exude both aesthetic brilliance and functionality, Roy Manufacturing has not only fulfilled R&H Constructions requirements for Fora Health’s project but also ensured that its customers will appreciate the exceptional quality for decades to come. This partnership exemplifies the power of collaboration in creating enduring solutions that positively impact the community.

Fora Health, a renowned provider of trauma-informed therapies, is dedicated to improving the well-being of adults and communities through innovative and evidence-based practices. Committed to building healthier individuals and reducing barriers to care, Fora Health recently collaborated with Roy Manufacturing, a leading perforated metal fabrication company, to create a visually stunning and privacy-enhancing solution for their new facility.

Understanding the significance of privacy and comfort in Fora Health’s work, Roy Manufacturing was entrusted with creating large perforated metal privacy panels for the facility. These screens not only offered a visually appealing fencing solution but also harmonized with the landscape, incorporating a tree-lined pattern into the metal panels. The collaboration between Roy Manufacturing, Holst Architects, and R&H Construction ensured the seamless integration of the privacy screens, both indoors and outdoors, enhancing the facility’s overall atmosphere.

For this project, Corten Steel was chosen as the material for the screens. Corten Steel products bring a unique, weathered aesthetic to any project, making it ideal for modern architectural designs, landscaping, and outdoor installations, just like this project. As a material that only grows more stunning with time, Corten Steel develops a rich, protective patina that enhances its visual appeal and ensures its longevity.

Perforated metal fabrication is a specialized process that involves creating sheets of metal with precisely designed patterns of holes or perforations. Roy Manufacturing leverages its expertise to work with various materials, including steel, stainless steel, aluminum, brass, and copper. These perforations can take various shapes and sizes, allowing for customization based on aesthetic and functional needs. Roy Manufacturing produces durable and visually striking perforated metal sheets by utilizing advanced machinery and techniques such as punching, drilling, laser cutting, shearing, and forming.

Designed to perfection, the custom perforated metal privacy panels consisted of four distinct designs featuring multiple round perforation diameters to create the captivating tree-line pattern. By meticulously incorporating 1/8 “, 3/16”, and 1/4” holes, Roy Manufacturing achieved a balance between privacy and aesthetics. A total of 69 panels were manufactured using 11 GA Corten sheets measuring 4’ x 8’. Each panel was carefully formed with flanges and mounting holes to facilitate easy installation.
