Detailed Analysis and Installation Methods of Metal Weave Mesh

In the past, metal mesh was commonly used for protective nets, fences and walls, such as the fences around the basketball and track fields at school. Later, the brilliant French architect Dominique Perrault was the first to creatively introduce this mesh-like metal material into the field of building decoration. Since then, many designers have paid attention to it and incorporated it into their designs.

Basic Introduction of Metal Weave Mesh

Metal Weave Mesh

Metal weave mesh materials are usually made of aluminum alloy, stainless steel, copper wire mesh, etc. They are commonly used in outdoor curtain walls, fences and more in construction projects. Inspired by designers, metal woven mesh is now widely used in the field of interior decoration.

The materials used for exterior building decoration with metal woven mesh are usually weather-resistant aluminum alloy, stainless steel, and copper wire mesh. In the field of interior design, metal woven mesh has more options and wider applications, such as for partitions, stair railings, wall decorations, furniture materials, and more.

Metal Mesh Materials can be classified into 3 types according to processing:

  • Woven wire mesh - made of metal wires, line wires, etc. woven by machines to create metal woven mesh, metal curtains.

  • Stretched plate mesh - made by mechanical processes such as cutting, stretching, and flattening of metal sheets.

  • Woven rust wire mesh - made by special methods of weaving metal wires.

Installation of Metal Weave Mesh

There are many different forms of structures of metal mesh which are generally related to the type of mesh. Woven wire mesh is commonly used with hook and rung tensioning methods, while stretched metal mesh is often fastened with edge clamps or directly welded.

The installation of woven metal mesh involves reducing the structural load by means of support points. A substructure with upper and lower connection points is required, and a fixed intermediate support must be added on each layer based on the size of the single unit that makes it up, to reduce the maximum load on the substructure and possible deviation of the mesh.

Advantages of Metal Weave Mesh

In buildings, metal woven mesh can effectively adjust the thermal comfort by regulating transparency and aesthetics, making the exterior wall form an effective ventilation system and preventing hot air from gathering for extended periods of time. It can serve as a material for light diffusion, sun shading, safety protection, bird and mosquito prevention, transparency, and ventilation.
