Laser Cut Screens - What You Need To Know

In the past, screen designers only make use of a combination of materials or colors. Screen designers often rely on color and shape patterns such as stripes or checkered. Some rely on patterns such as flowers while others make use of superb landscapes to make their screens stand out. Other more creative screen designers in the past make use of various materials combined in one screen. Combining 2 or more materials in one screen will add texture to the finished product which will make it stand out among other plainly designed screens. For example, paper on wood is a very popular design most especially for screens used indoors. A combination of paper and fabric or wood and fabric is also a common design in the past.Nowadays, screen makers and designers are no longer limited to color and material combinations to create stunning effects on their end products. With today’s modern technology, screen makers are able to use a single material and create beautiful and astounding designs through laser cutting.

Laser cutting is the process of cutting a sheet of material following a certain pattern or design through a laser cutter. It has become one of the favorite processes of home owners and screen makers since it allows for whatever designs one has in mind to be replicated onto the sheet of material. The laser cutter is able to replicate designs through the process of burning and melting the sheet of material. The laser cutter leaves a hole in the process – which follows the pattern or design desired.

The material used for laser cut screens may vary but the most commonly used materials include aluminum, plywood, steel and fiberboard with medium density. Any of these materials can be laser cut and made into screens. They can come in many sizes depending on one’s needs.

Laser cut screens have made it into the market because of precise and highly detailed designs. This is because laser cutters make use of designs and patterns translated from computer software. The use of computer software in making designs and patterns is much more superior compared to the conventional way of sketching or drawing designs and patterns. Drawing and sketching still prove to be useful in the initial phase of coming up with designs which include looking for inspiration or simply rendering what clients describe as their ideal laser cut designs and patterns. However, when it comes to the actual process of making the screen, computer generated laser cut screen designs are preferred.

Selecting a Product

So what type of privacy screen is right for your space? Below is a simple guide in choosing the right privacy screen.
Think about your space

Be clear about what you want to screen – is it just photographic or is it acoustic as well? Create a list of necessities your privacy screen must meet.

Entry spaces can truly benefit from the use of privacy screens. This is one area where they are becoming increasingly popular.

Decorative privacy screens can be utilized to divide large open plan spaces to generate ‘visual’ rooms. They can also be used to create an acoustic ceiling or wall lining in high noise areas.

Develop a design idea and think about it again!

There are numerous graphic styles and concepts you may choose from, so think about which style would optimally suit the interior look and feel of your own home. A screen is a sculptural bit which you can style in a really personal way; you may even desire to have a family picture laser-cut into the design.

Choose your design materials

Today’s material options and styles are numerous, and seeing contemporary architectural materials meeting with customary concepts is nothing short of remarkable.

Consider the maintenance, cost and quality of your screen

There are some privacy screen materials that require some amount of care. In choosing the material of your privacy screens, make sure you think about how it is maintained to ensure that you will be able to properly maintain it in the future.

Compare the costs and quality of all these materials. Choose a privacy screen that is within your budget without compromising the quality.
