Brocklebank 15/2 pre-crimped architectural wire mesh installed as façade cladding at the New Marlowe Theatre in Canterbury.
Long rolls of the pre-crimped mesh are tension mounted on to the building, creating a range of effects depending on the lighting conditions. A look of shimmering translucency in direct sunlight contrasts with striking green LED highlights at night.

About the Project
Brocklebank 15/2 pre-crimped architectural wire mesh installed as sun screening at The Templeman Library in Canterbury.
The windows and façade of the Library's Templeman East building were replaced as part of a major remodelling project to improve appearance, access and facilities.
The Brocklebank mesh was supplied folded and riveted into fabricated frames. These framed mesh panels were then anodised Bronze Anolok 541 giving a 20 year life expectancy. Each panel is hinged for window-cleaning access and was specially designed to be compatible with standard curtain walling systems making this system readily adaptable to similar glazed façades.
