◆ Architectural Mesh

The architectural wire mesh is a series of wire mesh products used for building outside or inner decoration, so it is also called decorative wire mesh. The main materials of architectural mesh are metal wires and plates. Because of the difference in materials, weaving process, mesh hole shape, opening rate and colors, Architectural mesh has various of types and styles. 


BZWIREMESH provide various of architectural mesh, mainly including Decorative Woven Mesh, Cable-rod Woven Mesh, Decorative Expanded Metal, Decorative Perforated Metal, Sprial Woven Mesh and Metal Mesh Curtain, and the products have been widely recognized by designers and owners all around the world.


Here are some of the features and applications of architectural wire mesh as well as some issues that users should pay attention to when selecting architectural mesh.


● Features of architectural mesh:


1. Durability: Architectural mesh is made from high-quality metals like stainless steel, aluminum, or bronze, making it extremely durable and resistant to corrosion, rust, and weathering.

2. Aesthetics: Architectural woven mesh can add a decorative touch to any building or structure. It comes in a range of patterns, colors, and finishes that can enhance the appearance of a building and create a unique look.

3. Transparency: Architectural wire mesh panels allow light to pass through, making it an ideal material for creating partitions, dividers, and screens.

4. Ventilation: Wire mesh can improve air circulation and ventilation in a building, which is important for indoor air quality and comfort.

5. Safety: Architectural wire mesh can provide an added layer of safety by serving as a barrier to prevent falls or debris from entering an area.


● Applications of architectural mesh:

1. Facades: Architectural mesh can be used to create an attractive and durable exterior for a building. It can be used as a cladding material, or as a decorative element for balconies, terraces, or walls.

2. Partitions: Architectural woven wire mesh partitions are an effective way to create privacy or divide a space. They offer a contemporary look and can be designed to meet specific requirements.

3. Railings: Architectural steel mesh can be used as a decorative material for railings and balustrades, providing a stylish and secure barrier.

4. Screens: Wire mesh screens can be used for a variety of purposes, including sun shading, wind protection, and privacy.

5. Green walls:  Architectural wire mesh can be used as a support structure for plants in green wall installations, helping to create an attractive and environmentally friendly building facade.

● Things to note when choosing architectural wire mesh:


1. Style: Metal wire mesh is a fantastic creative option for architectural decoration. Due to the different materials, production processes, and product characteristics, architectural wire mesh can exhibit modern or classical, simple or luxurious styles. When selecting a product, users should first determine the style of the metal mesh, such as woven wire mesh or expanded (perforated) meta mesh, rigid wire mesh or flexible wire mesh, etc. After selecting the basic type of wire mesh, users can then choose the specific specifications and models from the corresponding type of wire mesh.


2. Material: The common materials used for architectural wire mesh are stainless steel, aluminum, brass, or copper. Some decorative woven meshes use a process that combines stainless steel wire and brass wire, which looks very beautiful and unique. Generally, stainless steel and aluminum mesh are used for outdoor decoration, while brass or copper mesh is used for indoor decoration. The commonly used material grades for stainless steel mesh are AISI 304 and 316. When architectural wire mesh is used for building decoration in coastal areas, we generally recommend the more resistant AISI 316 material for metal mesh.


3. Size and weight: The maximum width of most architectural wire mesh can reach 8 meters, and the weight of each square meter of mesh varies from less than 1kg to more than 10 kg. When selecting a product, users should consider the size and weight of the mesh together with the spatial span and structural load-bearing capacity of the wire installation area.


4. Direction and front and back sides: Some meshes have different characteristics in different directions and front and back sides. Especially when installing decorative meshes in multiple areas of a building, it is necessary to ensure that the direction of the mesh and the orientation of the mesh surface are consistent.


5. Aperture ratio: The aperture ratio of the wire mesh determines the light transmission and air permeability of the product. Especially when architectural mesh is also used as a sunshade, the aperture ratio is a very important factor. Before purchasing, users must choose a product with an aperture ratio that meets the design and requirements.


6. Surface treatment of architectural metal mesh: The surface treatment of metal mesh mainly includes pickling and polishing, passivation and matte, anodizing, surface spraying (spray coating, fluorocarbon spraying, baking varnish), PVD electroplating, oxidation and coloring, etc. Different surface treatment methods have different effects and service lives. In addition, some surface treatment methods have size limitations for the mesh, and users should consider this comprehensively when choosing.


7. Selection of Rigid Wire Mesh and Flexible Wire Mesh: Due to differences in material and production processes, some meshes are hard and inflexible on the surface, while others are flexible and pliable, and some are flexible and pliable in one direction. When installing architectural wire mesh on curved surfaces, users must pay attention to whether the mesh can be bent and the direction of bending, ensure that the overall style of the installation of architectural wire mesh is unified and coordinated.


8. Selection of Installation Scheme: The selection of the installation scheme should consider the size and weight of the mesh, as well as how to fix and tension the wire mesh. Reasonable layout and partition of the wire mesh are crucial to the successful installation of the product. If the installation area of the wire mesh is too large or the weight of the mesh is too heavy, and the user prefers to use a whole piece of mesh, in order to ensure the safety and firmness of the wire mesh, load-bearing components such as steel pipes and steel bars should be added to reinforce the steel structure that supports the wire mesh.
