Interior and Exterior Architecture Applications for Woven Wire Mesh

The physical characteristics and versatility of the woven wire mesh make it very suitable for a variety of architectural applications and is a very popular choice for many internal and external construction facilities.

Woven wire mesh is often used as a filler panel for safety protection barriers and partitions. As screen to protect the interior of the building from insects and bad weather. It is installed in various vents or roof drains to protect it from leaves and other debris. Additionally, it is also often used in various applications for the decorative design of buildings.

The reason why architecture engineers and designers often choose wire mesh:

  1. Customizable specifications, sizes, and shapes give the wire mesh flexibility and versatility and can be applied to various ordinary or complex architectural designs.
  2. Installation is simple, cost-effective.
  3. The characteristics of heat resistance, waterproof, fire prevention, rust prevention, and corrosion resistance can easily cope with various environmental conditions.
  4. Visibility and aesthetics, some wire meshes (copper and extremely alloys) are often used for high-end decoration.
  5. The wire mesh used for construction applications is usually made of wire with a larger diameter and higher strength, which means that it is difficult to be damaged and can play a high safety protection role.

Common wire mesh architecture applications:

  • Fencing (outdoor and indoor)
  • Infill panels for balustrades
  • Wall divider claddings
  • Exterior facade covers
  • Solar shadings
  • Garden walls
  • Fountain covers
  • Ventilation grilles
  • Suspended walkways
  • Bike paths
  • Ceilings
  • Room partitions
  • Decorative screens
  • Window & door screens
  • Joinery & cabinetry
  • Custom lighting screens
  • Custom signage

Materials, specifications and weave types

Generally speaking, the wire mesh used for architectural applications is often customized, and the most suitable materials and specifications can be selected from hundreds of combinations according to the use environment or the design requirements of the architect.

The material is usually selected from plain steel, galvanized steel, stainless steel and its alloys, among which stainless steel is the most popular, it has the best corrosion resistance, more durable.
In the construction of some luxury buildings (such as high-end hotels, restaurants, residences, etc.), those metal materials with unique exterior colors (such as copper and its alloys) are chosen to create an upscale appearance.

Weaving types usually use common styles, plain weave, intercrimp, lock crimp, and flat top woven styles. The shape of the mesh is not as strict as it is used for filtering applications.

Dongfu wire mesh can provide customized orders for wire mesh for any architectural application, including a variety of standards, materials, wire diameters, shapes and mesh sizes.
