Perforated Steel for new AV cabinet


Standard Member
I am planning a built-in TV cabinet for new home extension.
The Front / Centre / Right speakers all have to be hidden within which i know is not ideal but it is better than a soundbar which is alternative on offer

I could use the acoustic transparent cloth but with a toddler in house i cannot see it lasting very long.

I found the BDI Octave cabinet that claim to be fully acoustic transparent made of perforated steel doors that look much stronger.
They do not sell doors individually so will need to try and source these myself, anyone used perforated steel before? any companies used? experiences good /bad?
Does anyone know the hole diameter of each of these, what type of steel they use.

Thanks again,

Did you have any luck with this? I was considering the idea of having a BDI inspired unit built but I like the idea of the steal fronts
