Scale Mesh by Alphamesh

May 30th, 2011 by retail design blog

Alphamesh scale mesh defines a new quality of material for metal meshes utilised in architecture and design. The flexible mesh resolved the heaviness and coldness of conventional metallic surfaces. Light forms and exclusive structures in elegant radiance suggest the association with sequins of ornate clothing. And many fashion designers have already discovered alphamesh scale mesh for their collections.

Qualities
Alphamesh scale mesh is available for architects, interior designers and designers in two different material versions, brass or aluminium. The capsule (scale) diameter of 5.8 mm and the number of capsules per square metre (27,750) is the same for both variations. Every capsule combines four ring elements in a mesh grid of 6 mm to one unit. Naturally the weight per square metre of both scale meshes is different: here the brass scale weighs twice as many kilos as the mesh made of aluminium scales.

Manufacture
Alphamesh scale meshes are produced with a specially developed manufacturing process. The scale mesh is available as delivered goods in the maximum dimensions of 3 m (height) x 6 m (width). Individual dimensions can be manufactured on request.

Characteristics
Alphamesh scale meshes are design-oriented, formative elements of architecture, interior design and creative applications. Flexibility, lightness and the special structure of the mesh underscore the high measure of stand-along appearance. The material acquires individuality through the possibility to design the typical capsules/scales in colour.

Inside or outside?
Alphamesh scale mesh is predestined for applications inside a building. But this does not preclude application in outdoor areas. In order to be able to guarantee the valuable appearance and integrity of the scale mesh, the separate scrutiny of any outdoor application is advisable.
