Patterns and Considerations:

  • ATAS has six (6) standard round hole patterns
  • Holes cannot be smaller than the thickness of material
  • Loss of material results in strength reduction; this must be considered in application and design
  • Engineering review may be necessary
  • Small hole, less than 1/8″ diameter, may hold water due to capillary action in exterior applications
  • Highly recommended to utilize aluminum versus metallic coated steel
  • Fastener type and spacing must be considered
  • Due to a large variety of patters, samples may be subject to extended lead times
