Staggered Perforations, both round and square – direction of the stagger will normally be the short dimension of the perforated sheet metal, as illustrated below. 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.

Unfinished End Pattern is standard in the industry.
