Why Decorative Metal Screens Are Necessary For Sustainability?

August 23, 2022

Decorative metal screens feature welded or woven wire meshes made of stainless steel, copper, bronze, brass or any other type of sturdy metal. A staple in many homes and office spaces, they can be incorporated into suspended ceilings, exterior screens, infill panels, stair treads and more. Apart from aesthetics and utility, these screens are also valuable from an environmental standpoint. Here’s how decorative metal screens promote sustainability. 


Decorative metal screens and sustainability.


Reduced Utility Costs

Energy efficiency is a major sustainability issue. With rising levels of emissions, governments are striving to reduce their overall energy expenditure. Decorative metal screens can help in this endeavor by reducing the amount of heat or cold entering or escaping a building. This works exceptionally well for sunlight, as the screens allow some light to enter the premises, thereby lowering the cost of artificial lighting.


Easy To Recycle

Most metals used in decorative screens are easily recyclable. Therefore, when they are upgraded or replaced, the metal can be repurposed, thereby helping in limiting the production of freshly-mined metal.



Metal screens, apart from creating an aesthetic vibe, are also known for their extreme durability. Decorative screens, even with limited or no maintenance, can last decades, irrespective of their location inside or outside the property. Thus, it will limit the additional use of metal, making it a more sustainable product than as wood vinyl, or plastic.


Reduction In Fuel Expenses

Transporting metal and goods is another major contributor to poor sustainability practices. However, in this case, the metal mesh is lighter than conventional metal goods, thereby reducing load weight and costing less fuel for transportation. 


Lastly, since metal is malleable and versatile, it can be also incorporated into more environmentally friendly designs from scratch.
