Cambridge Architectural Now Offering Aluminum Mesh For Interior Applications
Initial Offering Includes Five Patterns and Eight Colors
Cambridge, MD - Cambridge Architectural, an industry leader in flexible woven wire mesh for interior and exterior building applications, has expanded its product portfolio and is now offering anodized aluminum mesh in eight colors for interior applications such as ceiling canopies and architectural drapery.
Cambridge anodized aluminum mesh is available in five patterns traditionally offered in stainless steel (Shade, Mid-Shade, Mid-Balance, Diamond and Windsor). Available colors are: light bronze, medium bronze, nickel, black, pearl, blue, red and gold.
“We believe this is a game-changer for architects and designers who are looking for a broader selection in lighter weight mesh,” said Cambridge Architectural Brand Manager Gary Compton. “When you look at what’s currently offered in aluminum mesh by other manufacturers, it’s limited to a single pattern or two with only a couple choices in anodized colors.”
More than one-third lighter in weight and requiring less structural support than stainless steel, Cambridge anodized aluminum also provides a warmer finish to the metal, according to Compton, and can be used as a decorative accent, canopy or curtain divider for a variety of interior design uses.
The lighter weight also offers the potential for lower overall costs depending on the project specifications, Compton said.
In addition to offering mesh, Cambridge can provide several sophisticated attachment systems for architectural drapery and ceiling canopies. The choices include Cambridge’s Curtain Attachment System that attaches flexible metal fabric to carriers and allows the curtain to roll smoothly along the track length as a window treatment or draping space divider. Flexible metal fabrics are hung sideways to maximize a draping effect.
The company plans to further expand its aluminum product line in 2015 to include new attachment systems for tension mounting.
“As we continue to build and expand our portfolio of products, customers can expect the same craftsmanship and high quality standards that have been associated with our metal mesh for the last 103 years,” Compton said.
Cambridge has produced aluminum mesh previously for custom jobs, including the elevator cabs at Carnegie Hall in New York.
