A perfectly placed screen in a room can, aside from its practical use as a room divider or separator, be an inimitable work of art in itself. As a decorative element in the space, it can also afford a focus point for fabric design, colour or furniture placement and design. A sectional, foldable screen with decorated fretwork or open lattice patterns in a variation of materials, ranging from metal to wood, or a blend of materials, can also be the perfect solution to affording air and light between two parts of a room. Screens can also offer some privacy and separation, depending on the screen’s bulk and thickness and the sophistication of its designs and motifs.
Laser cutting for decorative screens offers the perfect balance of design and technology. Graphics design professionals, artists, interior decorators and architects can work hand in hand to create a characteristic design which can then be accomplished by laser cutting on the identified material. The benefit of laser cutting is that it gives sharp, clean finish, with very scant wastage of materials. Since the laser cutting machines are commonly automated or computerized, errors and miscalculations can be eradicated if the specifications are properly input.
Generally, a variety of materials is available for fabricating a decorative screen:
Mild Steel: is the most economical material and can be completed with powder-coating. Screens in lobbies, restaurants and homes can be made from this material, though it is not very hard-wearing and not suitable for exteriors lest re-coating and rust-proofing are frequently carried out. Stainless steel is another alternative, which can be polished, painted or etched/embossed etc. and is also quite within your means.
Aluminum: For a light-weight, easily portable decorative piece, this is the finest metal option. However, it’s eventually the finishing, painting, anodizing or coating that make aluminum look sophisticated. Otherwise it can look messy and cheap. It may also dull with exposure to sun and rain if left outside.
Depending on your design ideas, budget, placement choices, requirements and choice of material, a laser cut decorative screen can give you the perfect design statement for your interiors or exteriors.
