How Wire Mesh Facade Enhances Safety And Utility?
Wire mesh has numerous industrial as well as architectural applications. This mainly depends on the warp wires, shute wires, and the type of weave. Thus, wire mesh, usually stainless steel wire mesh, is added to the facade of many buildings and prominent structures like airports, train stations and more. Apart from being an aesthetic choice, it also enhances the safety and utility of the building. The safety and practical application in particular will be explored in this blog.
Wire Mesh Facade And Protection
Wire mesh facade enhances safety in a building in the following ways:
Prevents Accidental Falls
Due to its lightweight and high strength, wire mesh is a perfect addition to any structure’s facade. It prevents accidental falls, making it a staple in guard rails on a walkway, external and internal staircases, and parking lots spanning multiple stories.
Prevents Intentional Climbing
Wire mesh facades protect residents of a building from accidental falls as well as intruders. The strong and tensile nature of the wire mesh makes it challenging to climb or break, ensuring that the building is protected from intruders.
The mesh facade also protects the buildings from objects and debris like rocks that can cause serious damage and accidents to the structure.
In terms of utility, the wire mesh is known for its lightweightness and transparency, allowing visual access to the outside world. It also allows natural light and ventilation, ensuring that these factors are not compromised for safety.
Therefore, a wire mesh is a comprehensive and versatile solution for any building’s facade in terms of safety, utility and of course, aesthetics.
