Why is it needed?
The material of flexible wire mesh consists of spiral-shaped wires that link together with a rod that passes through the spiral shape’s opening, creating a belt with loose intersections. This feature enables the flexible mesh to have fewer components and structural support, allowing it to hang freely in various shapes or be installed in tension on building facades.

What are its uses?
The flexible mesh systems provide more creative freedom, allowing for movement and long, uninterrupted expanses. It can meet a wide variety of aesthetics while shading the sun and providing a secure, but ventilated barrier.  The large dimensions of the material contribute to a more cost-effective installation for it significantly reduces the quantity of materials needed to cover large areas.

Why is it important?
The addition of flexible mesh means new opportunities for architects working with wire mesh. Architects will now be able to leverage Banker’s knowledge of mesh properties and project management expertise to specify complete flexible mesh systems for building facades and interior.

What are the key aspects?
With the flexibility of the wire mesh, architects have in their hands added variety for their designs that are not provided by rigid wire mesh.  The entry of this product will open markets to clients brought by additional alternatives in designs and solutions to their aesthetic requirements.
