Product Spotlight: Mild Steel Weavemesh
As we’ve spoken about in previous blogs, the architectural use of weavemesh products has only grown in popularity over the years - adding an industrial yet contemporary look to many interiors. From commercial to residential spaces, weavemesh and perforated metal products can be spotted high and low, chosen for their ability to provide some transparency and openness to a room while still effectively dividing a room or a space for functional or aesthetic use.
Over the years, we’ve had the opportunity to see the unique and innovative ways in which our customers use our products. In today’s blog we’d like to showcase one of these projects and the type of product used: a mild steel weavemesh used for the doors of a wine cellar.
The Project: Wine Cellar Doors
Not many of us are privy to the benefits of having a personal wine cellar. But for those of us that are, an added benefit would be the ability to organize your fine wines as you see fit. Storing bottles in an air-tight, cool room, and investing in sturdy shelving and racks will enable you to display your collection effectively. The ability to see your collection through a partition or door allows you to take stock of your bottles without having to open any doors outright.
This project in particular uses our Mild Steel Weavemesh product for the wine cellar doors, allowing for subtle visibility of the wine bottles on display.
The Product: Mild Steel Weavemesh
Ferrier Wire’s Mild Steel Weavemesh product was used for the doors of this project. Mild Steel Weavemesh is an economical product choice, but must be finished to minimize the risk of rust from occurring due to exposure to moisture over time. Even if finished with powercoating, there still exists a possibility that the mesh will rust over time. This is because it is difficult to get the finish in between where the wires overlap.
The most durable option is to opt for the stainless steel wire mesh version of this pattern, and then seek finishing options i.e. powder coating in matte black.
