Safety mesh is an extremely versatile product for use in construction and architectural projects.
We’ve put together a list of 10 advantages of safety mesh in a wide variety of applications.
1. It’s flexible and malleable
Webnet safety mesh has a fabric-like structure, making it very useful for ‘wrapping’ around irregular structures and shapes such as you might see in children’s playgrounds.
2. A strong low-maintenance material
Made from 316-grade stainless steel, safety mesh is extremely strong and durable, making it suitable for projects that require longevity and minimal maintenance of materials.
3. Provides fall protection
It can be used for fall protection in a variety of settings. This includes car parks, playgrounds, bridges, balconies and staircases.
4. Useful in green facades
Steel mesh can be fixed to green facade support structures to provide a trellis or training system for climbing plants.
5. Handles large loads
It’s strong enough to handle heavy loads, making it suitable when fall protection is required or to cope with plant weight on large-scale green walls and facades.
6. It can replace walls
Mesh can be used to define separate indoor spaces in place of walls. This is particularly useful in small spaces to create an ‘open’ environment that allows in plenty of light.
7. Useful for animal enclosures
Safety mesh can be used to provide a safety barrier for animals while allowing free roaming. It also comes in various aperture sizes to suit the application.
8. Light attractive design
Webnet’s light filigree design provides safety without blocking the light or imposing, or interrupting the design of the structure.
9. Use for artistic or business purposes
The material can be used to create decorative or artistic facades. It can also be used for attaching steel plates in a configuration to represent logos or company signage. When coated with reflective film, signage can even be seen at night.
10. Can be coloured as desired
A product such as webnet mesh can be produced in a variety of colours to suit your project purposes – an example being bright playful colours for a children’s playground.
