Jacobson 612 decorative mesh at the reception to Rothschild Bank, New Court, London

A combination of flat and round wires form a solid, completely opaque decorative mesh, more visually similar to embossed sheet metal than a woven mesh. Perfect for high-end projects such as this.

Specified by OMA Architects,  the Jacobson 612 mesh, complete with magnificent bronze finish, fits the setting perfectly.  As described here by Wallpaper the metal mesh provides "a nod to the bank’s long association with cold, hard commodities (the price of gold was, until recently, fixed at New Court)."

Bringing the Inside Out.

Greenwich Design District Buildings C1 and D1 Full View

Locker Architectural were sub-contracted by Ardmore Construction to design, supply and install over 2,000m2 of Rope Diamond Ferruled mesh for use at Greenwich Design District. The project was hailed as a great success and featured on the cover of Architects Journal.

Greenwich Design District Buildings C1 and D1 45 Degrees View

Specified by Architecture 00, buildings C1 and D1 fully utilise the unparalleled flexibility of this mesh for façade cladding, balustrading, bird netting and forming a state of the art rooftop Multi-use games area.

Greenwich Design District Buildings C1 and D1 Inside Netting

The transparency of the mesh is intended to strip back to the most basic of building components, while affording tenants with a truly impressive view of the surroundings.  The stairs and lifts are also on the exterior of the building, truly connecting the interior and exterior of the buildings.

Aluminium Brocklebank 20/5 mesh at 2 Cumberland Place Dublin.

Over 500 panels of Brocklebank 20/5 were used to create the bronze fins which add texture to this modern glass façade.

2 Cumberland Place Dublin Side

The mesh was sandwiched in a box section frame, before being powder coated.

The mesh was installed by GLF Façade Specialists and specified by Billings Design Associates.

In tandem with the perforated metal supplied by others, the mesh forms a brise soleil for the office workers within the building.

Locker successfully completed the full design, engineering, fabrication and installation of this project on time and within budget for Bourne Group.

The Architectural practice was Nicholas Hare.

Design challenges

  • Each panel had identical sinusoidal corrugations. The perforated pattern, as well as the depth and wavelength of the profile, can be varied to create a bespoke facade.
  • The panels were only 2mm thick but had to vertically span up to 3m unsupported. The radius profile of the panels had to be deep enough to impose the required rigidity.
  • The constraints of the rolling tool had to be considered when determining radii.
  • The panels were designed to overlap enabling neighbouring panels to share common fixings.
  • Wind, snow and ice forces were considered.
  • The design maintains rigidity whilst having a 40% laser-cut open area for air flow.
  • The slot centres were adjusted to take account of the sinusoidal radii.
  • The drawing extract below shows a typical laser-cut sheet prior to, and following radius forming:
Sawston Unity Campus Project Blue Print

Fabrication Challenges

  • Perforation slots had to be laser cut prior to forming the radii.
  • The slots were not to distort during the radius forming.
  • The perforated sheets had to be incrementally “bumped” in a break press to form the exact radii.
  • The sinusoidal radii had to be consistent from panel to panel.
  • The panels were grit blasted prior to being polyester powder-coated. The grit blasting process removes the toolmarks.
  • The corner panels were site measured and installed last.
  • The laser cut panels had to be consistently accurate to the millimetre as they could not be altered on site.
  • The following images show the mesh panels laser-cut in their unformed state and in their radiused condition: -

Installation Challenges

  • Setting out of the panels was key to the project success to avoid accumulative error. Our site careful survey avoided abortive works where steelwork was out of alignment.
  • The extract below shows how we had to adapt our setting out to accommodate the slope in the building from left to right. This we had to stagger each panel location by 8mm.
  • Installation was undertaken from all-terrain scissor lifts. No lifting gear was needed.
