The self-cleaning stainless-steel mesh offers an aesthetically pleasing contrast to the cast-iron and glass façade, while screening plant machinery and services.

As the viewing angle varies, so to do the levels of transparency and reflectivity. From ground level, where the mesh appears before the sky, it appears translucent, like a semipermeable crown. When viewed from the adjacent skyscrapers of the Hudson Yard development, the mesh sits in front of unattractive plant machinery, and is much more opaque.

About the Project

The previously vacant 1960s Westlegate Tower office block in Norwich has been transformed to create luxury apartments, commercial units and a car park.

The existing building has been modernised and enhanced by the installation of metal façade cladding. Garston expanded metal is installed around the building entrance and windows, and Eiffel 40 spiral mesh curtain plant screening at the top of the tower.

About the Project

Soho XL Expanded Mesh, powder coated to RAL 1002, supplied by Locker Architectural. Fabrication and installation works carried out by Air 3 Limited.

The mesh has been radiused and used to screen off two vertical ducts, fixed using semi-circular brackets. To radius more easily, the long way of the aperture runs vertically, whereas normally this runs horizontally.

About the Project

Aluminium Brocklebank 20/5 architectural wire mesh façade cladding on top of University of Essex student accommodation.

The student accommodation requires an amount of plant on the roof; heating and air conditioning units, fans and ducting. The mesh enclosure effectively hides the unsightly plant from the view of people in the adjacent Library which is several floors higher and overlooks the Student Centre. The left hand enclosure is accessed from inside the building and has two double gates onto the roof and second enclosure. The latter is entered via a double gate in the centre. The library building itself has a similar enclosure but with no mesh roof as it is not overlooked. The enclosures are made from galvanised steel beams with our aluminium ‘Olympic’ extrusion as cross supports. The mesh is then screwed either through the steel work or into our extrusion depending which edge it is. The gates all have twin locks for added security.
