Metal mesh is a fascinating building material that can be used in many architectural environments. In some cases, the material is used as an innovative solution to conceal dilapidated buildings, hiding the structure in a veil of rejuvenation. In other cases, the material is the backbone of a completely new design.
Whatever led the architect to choose it, the material adapts to buildings of all shapes, sizes, and ages and promises to produce a bright and airy space. It's the ultimate keeper of secrets - it contains enough perforations to engage your curiosity without giving away too much.
Architects can choose between a variety of materials to create stunning, artistic facades. One new trend is the use of aluminum to design lace-like facades with holes. In addition to looking great, these facades also improve thermal performance by creating a second layer to protect it on sunny days.
Decorative Expanded Metal
Metal as a cladding product is on the rise in both interior and exterior applications. This is likely due to its versatility and the ease with which customers can manufacture it. Unlike many other materials, metal can be folded, stamped, perforated, etched, and coated in an almost infinite number of ways.
Let's look at how aluminum can be used as a decorative and functional part of a facade.
Aluminum is a metal that offers endless opportunities for facade design, and extrusion as a manufacturing technique is ideal for this purpose. Extrusion is a process used to create objects with a fixed cross-sectional profile in which the material is pushed through a die with the desired cross-section.
The two main advantages of this process over other manufacturing processes are its ability to produce complex cross-sections and to process fragile materials, as the material will only encounter compressive and shear stresses. It also allows the formation of parts with an excellent surface finish.
Decorative Perforated Metal
Extruded profiles for facades can be industrially processed by machining operations such as milling, drilling, thread milling, and tapping, as well as cutting and grooving. With the right machine, it is even possible to protect sensitive profile surfaces from scratches and other damage. In this way, there are almost endless opportunities to create facades that are both functional and aesthetically pleasing.
When you use surface anodizing technology that offers a wide range of colors, you can design and create countless original building facades.
Architects have long used aluminum profiles to create windows, doors, railings, and roofs. The positive life cycle of metal from cradle to cradle and its contribution to improving the energy efficiency of buildings are two reasons. There are other good reasons to choose aluminum.
Facade Metal Mesh
Aluminum profiles are weather-resistant, corrosion-resistant, and impervious to the harmful effects of UV rays, ensuring optimal performance over a long service life. The surface treatment further enhances the excellent corrosion resistance.
Aluminum's impressive strength-to-weight ratio makes it possible to design lightweight structures with outstanding stability. It provides architects with the means to meet the required performance specifications while minimizing foundation expenses.
Aluminum is highly adaptable and designable, and can also be recycled endlessly, so it can always be used again when buildings are renovated or demolished. Aluminum is a raw material for which there is no shortage of supply. Given today's environmental considerations, this is an important aspect for architects, who are increasing the use of aluminum in their work to design "greener" buildings.
