Jakob’s Webnet ID: Not Just a Pretty Face

At Tensile, we offer webnet ID among our range of Jakob stainless steel products.

Webnet ID can be described as ‘enhanced’ webnet – adding an extra element to the stock 316 marine-grade stainless steel original version.

Just like the original, webnet ID is incredibly strong while being versatile at the same time. It can be used to create support structures on building facades, balustrades, internal screens, safety enclosures and for bridge or walkway fall protection. It is even flexible enough to ‘wrap’ around objects such as play equipment.

Adding your own stamp

Webnet ID provides all the benefits of webnet mesh, but with the added option of decorative metal plates to embed your own choice of graphics into the material.

The plates come in either stainless steel or aluminium, and in a variety of shapes, colours and sizes. They can be placed in an endless variety of configurations into a mesh screen or facade. This means you can create your own ‘mosaic’ of whatever graphics you desire – such as your logo, company colours, artwork, and company signage and so on.

The options are endless for use of this material. Examples might include bridges with artwork incorporated into mesh fall barriers, reception areas with logo or company displays, facades with historic images or artwork stamped into them, and much more.

A specific advantage is that if the material is used for signage or advertising, it is less vulnerable to wind and other weather conditions than traditional billboards and signs.

A case in point

A classic example of the use of webnet ID is this hotel facade in Switzerland. The hotel has used aluminium triangles to create a hotel ‘billboard’ facade. The shapes have also been coated with a reflective film. This means they can be seen at night without the need for expensive lighting.

If you have a project in mind that would be enhanced with the use of Webnet ID, get in touch with our team for a discussion.
