◆ Architectural Wire Mesh

Architectural Wire Mesh, also known as Architectural Metal Mesh, or Architectural Mesh, is a very distinctive product family of Wire Mesh. Because architectural wire mesh is often used for interior and exterior architectural decoration and protection, it is often referred to as Decorative Wire Mesh in the industry. The main materials of architectural wire mesh are metal wires and plates. Because of the difference in materials, weaving process, mesh hole shape, opening rate and colors, Architectural wire mesh has various of types and styles. 

BZWIREMESH provide various of Architectural Mesh. According to the different structural characteristics and application scope of Architectural Wire Mesh, Architectural Metal Mesh is mainly divided into three main series: woven wire mesh series, metal plate mesh series and flexible wire mesh series. Each series can be subdivided into many different types.

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.

Architectural Wire Mesh Shading Principle

● Functions Of Architectural Wire Mesh

As a progressively favored architectural decorative material among architects and property owners, metal mesh serves not only to enhance the aesthetics and uniqueness of buildings but also plays a crucial role in regulating lighting and room temperature.

1. Architectural mesh is employed in building design and renovation. It boasts a flexible form and easy installation. Architectural wire mesh can be pre-designed as part of a building during the architectural design phase, or it can be added as a new element for the renovation of existing structures.

2. Architectural wire mesh aids in regulating lighting and room temperature. During the summer, the mesh filters sunlight, creating shade, which reduces indoor temperatures and saves energy used for cooling. In the winter, the mesh shields against wind and snow, thus providing protection to the building and some insulation.


3. Architectural metal mesh offers excellent ventilation and breathability. Different types of architectural mesh come with varying ventilation and breathability properties, which should be selected rationally according to the client's needs and local climate conditions. Moreover, architectural woven wire mesh can be installed separately from glass, creating a ventilation effect by selecting an appropriate distance.

4. Architectural woven wire mesh offers a flexible and straightforward installation method suitable for large areas, extensive spans, or curved surfaces. Architectural mesh installation is uncomplicated and cost-effective. However, due to the mesh's width limitations, it is necessary to plan the metal mesh layout and partitions appropriately, considering the mesh's weight, and add supporting components when required.

5. Architectural mesh panels provide privacy and comfortable visual experience. From an external viewpoint, architectural mesh can shield the observers' line of sight, effectively preserving the privacy of indoor occupants and equipment. From an indoor perspective, it offers a great view and a delightful landscape experience. Architects can achieve the best visual experience by choosing suitable patterns and porosities.

6. Metal architectural wire mesh allows for dynamic and adaptable forms and functions. The use of various styles of metal mesh – fixed, sliding, or detachable – allows it to better adapt to user needs and changing weather conditions.

7. Architectural mesh provides a 3D effect, a strong sense of individuality, and artistic expression. By employing different types, materials, and colors of metal mesh and using prefabricated components, dynamic three-dimensional geometric shapes such as cubes, cylinders, and curved surfaces can be created to enhance interior lighting, temperature, and comfort.

8. Metal mesh surfaces can be seamlessly integrated with lighting and electronic devices. Adding lighting, animations, and video content to the facades with metal mesh. Using architectural wire mesh panels in conjunction with extensive surface areas and LED technology, it's possible to create media communication platforms within the building.

Looking Out The Window Through The Metal Mesh

● 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 wire 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.
