Metal mesh is used today for solar management on facades, wall partitions, etched graphics on facades and many interior applications. Mostly we see metal fabrics in stainless steel which are hardy enough to stand up to weathering and years of use, however we can also see them in copper, zinc, bronze and other alloys.
Metal fabrics come in such a range of patterns, opacities and strengths that they have gone from a purely industrial architectural material to a cutting edge modern material.
GKD Metal Fabrics is one manufacturer who provides a wide range of metal products from punctured and perforated sheets to loose and tight meshes varying opacity and strength. Mediamesh is a new product that now embeds LED lights within the mesh providing a dynamic and graphic facade.
