For many flooring and walkway applications, metal mesh is the material of choice.
For industrial or agricultural use the benefits are clear to see, mesh flooring is strong, it’s hard wearing and can meet the requirements of Australian Standards such as AS1657 2013. Walkway mesh products can also offer outstanding levels of grip, even on an inclined surface, making them perfect for surfaces that need to be non-slip. Mesh also drains well, so for wet environments it excels. Galvanised steel or aluminium mesh is washable and corrosion resistant. For sterile environments stainless steel mesh can be used. Elevated walkways or platforms commonly need to be guarded with a perimeter handrail such as Monowills Link by Webforge, and these products can work well together as a system.
Mesh products can also be used to create striking decorative features. Safe-T-Perf is such a product, it’s made from perforated stainless steel and is regularly used by architects when function and style are both high priorities.
