At Graepels we invest time and money into our expert tooling department and machinery. We specialise in bespoke design and engineering from our headquarters in Ireland to our factories and offices in Dublin and the UK. Apart from metal perforation, weaving and rubber Graepels offer a wide range of manufacturing services; leveling, rolling, folding and more. Our expert tooling department and top of the range machinery allows us to produce high quality products to meet our customers needs.

Perforated Metal
Graepels manufacture perforated metal for a wide range of industries. We supply sheets from stock and manufacture decorative and bespoke perforated sheets and standard perforations. All perforated metal is available in various materials, thicknesses and sheet sizes.

Woven Wire Mesh
Graepels manufacture a wide range of apertures, wire thicknesses and patterns in a selection of materials.The most popular being high tensile steel, which is a spring steel, stainless steel (in a number of grades) and pre-galvanized steel for customers who want zinc to protect from corrosion.

Rubber and Polyurethane Screens
Graepels manufacture perforated rubber mats, screens and Polyurethane screens for the quarry and recycling industry as they are suitable for filtering materials and suited to wet conditions.

Graepels have the ability to roll large thickness plates and thin material to a radius or to a full circumference where possible. Curving sheets make them a lot more rigid, some design issues with regards to material can be overcome by curving material.

Features of today’s machines make them very versatile, enabling accurate high quality parts to be produced, for customer’s sheet metal needs. Paired with 3D folding software it is possible to program and manufacture complex parts.

After perforation, sheets can be reduced in size to give customers a required screen size and blank un-perforated margins. It is also possible to cut through the perforations if no un-perforated margin is required.

Large Margins and the type of material used contributes to the flatness of a sheet. For example stainless steel hardens as it stretches during the punching process, these perforated sheets need to be flattened.

Bespoke Perforated Sheets
Throughout the years Graepel have been involved in many bespoke and exciting projects, such as the Chelsea Flower Show, London, the refurbishment of the Diving Bell on Dublin’s Docklands, Croke Park Stadium, one sovereignty square Leeds and much more.

As bespoke metal fabricators in the UK and Ireland, Graepels offer Safe Deck in an extensive range of materials and finishes, ensuring that increased functionality never leads to the loss of aesthetics. Furthermore, it means the product can be tailored to meet the precise specifications of your project.
Safe Deck perforated metal decking was utilized to great success at Brighton Marina, UK. When planning the walkway, key concerns related to the high slip potential of the marina. Safe Deck safety flooring and anti-slip steps were chosen for the project, as they provide both a safe and comfortable walking surface for pedestrians. Safe Deck steel walkways also allow for water drainage through its metal perforations, making it the perfect choice for water-side projects.
With its highly versatile properties, Safe Deck may also be used in various architectural applications including metal cladding and curtain walls. Safe Deck Light Profile is an ideal choice for areas which require a high open area, as it provides increased air flow for areas which require ventilation such as car parks. Safe Deck Light Profile has a high open area of 74% to 80%.

Hooked on a feeling

We’re feeling great! Why? We recently completed an iconic Picture-Perf portrait of boxing champion Michael Conlan, which has been displayed at the window of his amateur club, Clonard A.B.C.!


We are delighted to have worked with McGurk Architects and JPM Contracts on this striking 6m x 4m portrait, which honours the success of boxing champion Michael Conlan.

This spectacular Picture-Perf portrait was fabricated through utilising CNC technology. Picture Perf is metal design at its finest, offering a unique approach to perforating metal with a wide variety of architectural applications. The image was formed by punching four perforation sizes into 21 galvanised metal panels. This added intricate shading and depth to the portrait.

Today, Michael Conlan’s image stands proudly at the window of his amateur club, Clonard A.B.C., and we are delighted to have worked on this fantastic project.


Booterstown is a coastal town, situated close to Dun Laoghaire, about 7 km south of Dublin City. Graepels Straight Wire Mesh and Perforated Metal are used throughout Booterstown Dart Station which boasts some stunning views out onto the Harbour.

Graepel Mesh

The architectural application of wire mesh in public spaces such as the Dart Stations, pedestrian bridge are advantageous, because of the high visibility through the mesh. The open area means the clear visibility hinders people from loitering on the bridge thereby increasing security and deterring vandals.

The aesthetic advantages is its ability to maximize the views while fulfilling its functional purpose of creating a durable, secure pedestrian bridge.

Both ends of the bridge the view are framed geometrically by the hexagonal framework of the bridge, while the glass balustrade allows views of the Irish Sea to remain unobstructed

Woven Wire Mesh graepels

The Wire Mesh Panels were manufactured in 3 mm thick stainless steel 316 quality. The Mesh panels were supplied in sections, each box section was then bolted onto the hexagonal steel frame of the bridge. At one end the panels were folded around a steel frame and welded with staggered tensioning bolts at regular intervals. The other end of the panels were folded for rigidity at the point where the panels joined.

Graepels straight wire mesh

Due to the span of each panel in relation to the thickness of the wire the panels could potentially flex. The solution to this was to create a bolt system, for each box section to secure them onto the hexagonal stainless steel frame. Once the wire mesh panels were bolted into place, the entire frame increased in strength and durability.

The bright annealed wire, creates a ‘shiny’ finish which means the wire is self cleaning, however, due to the local climate the panels need maintenance, albeit minimum maintenance, to ensure the wires do not stain.

Architectural Mesh


Booterstown Dart station combines a variety of ‘metal styles’ such as Wire Mesh, Perforated Metal and Welded Mesh.

Perforated Metal is used throughout the station, in Balustrade infill, each Perforated Stainless steel sheet is clamped behind a flat strip of stainless steel and secured in place.

Perforated Stainless Steel Balustrade Infill

Perforated Metal has many advantageous qualities, particularly in public spaces, due its strength and durability. Perforations also act as an excellent wind and weather barrier while remaining aesthetically pleasing, particularity when lit up at night as the light disperses through the perforations.
