3 Prevalent Wire Mesh Facade Mounting Configurations

3 Prevalent Wire Mesh Facade Mounting Configurations

In the previous blog, the definition of a wire mesh facade, its core components, and some advantages of using them was addressed. In this blog, 3 major wire mesh mounting solutions will be explored in detail, as well as tips to maintain this mesh after installation.


Wire Mesh Mounting Configurations


Flat Tension Profile

This is one of the most common configurations, comprising a flat tension profile, clevis hardware and compression. As mentioned in the previous blog, a flat tension profile is a form of clamp and clevis hardware is primarily a type of screw. The use of compression springs is warranted in external applications, which is true for a wire mesh facade, as it provides much-needed elasticity in the mesh.  However, the wires also require a solid substructure to keep them tensioned appropriately with compression springs. To maintain this tension, round tubes are placed intermediately along the structure to create a strong, cohesive unit.


Round Bar With Eyebolt

An alternate configuration to the flat tension profile, it uses a round bar and eyebolt system to keep the wire mesh attached to the support structure. Essentially, a round bar which is designed for load distribution is inserted along the top and bottom of the wire mesh panel. The wire mesh is connected to this round bar using eyebolt clamps which run along the length of the panel.


Special Shapes

In cases where there are curves, edges or unconventional profiles, special mounting configurations can be applied after consulting with a planner or a contractor.


Maintaining A Wire Mesh Facade

The best feature of a wire mesh facade is that it requires little to no maintenance. Any dust or debris build-up can be washed away with rain or water. Only an annual visual inspection is necessary to ensure that they have been mounted properly and there is no change in the tensioning of the wires.
