New offering allows architects to mix mesh patterns that produce varying aesthetic and shade characteristics.
Cambridge, Maryland (PRWEB) July 08, 2014
Capitalizing on an emerging design trend, Cambridge Architectural will introduce Build-A-Pattern woven wire mesh products that architects can configure to create customized patterns. The company will offer Build-A-Pattern beginning in Q4 2014, and the Cambridge Architectural design team will preview it at Facades+ in Chicago, July 24-25.
In recent years several architects have come to us with requests for multiple patterns within a mesh panel, said Gary Compton, Cambridge Architectural brand manager. By requesting a mix of standard Cambridge patterns, some with tighter and some with more open weaves, they can achieve an overall design with a more interesting visual appearance and achieve varying degrees of light passage through the mesh panel.
Solar shading is a primary use of Build-A-Pattern and Cambridge holds a patent on the concept: Architectural Mesh Sunscreen with Varying Shading Characteristic (US 8,006,739 B2).
Compton says there are numerous Build-A-Pattern choices using Cambridge patterns. Two options that mix multiple patterns are:
Stripe Predominantly made from Cambridges Mid-Balance mesh pattern, Stripe includes periodic spirals of the more open Scale weave
Windsor Features four rows of Mid-Balance spirals between each Windsor band
Recent projects that include a mix of Cambridge Architectural patterns include:
