Mounting Solutions for Mesh Façades – Wire Mesh
A flat tension profile (tension strip) is equipped with clevis bolts. Using the bolts, the wire mesh element is suspended into the substructure. At the same time the bolts are used to apply tension at the top mounting point.
With proper opening sizes wire mesh elements can be mounted with wire connectors, which wrap around a tube, located behind the mesh. The connectors interlock with the mesh from the back. Standing in front of the element this mounting system is almost invisible.
For bottom mountings the use of flat tension profiles is recommended. Proper tensioning is achieved with clevis screws that are attached to the flat tension profile.
Especially in exterior applications structural characteristics require the use of additional pressure springs. They lend sufficient elasticity to the wire mesh when exposed to respective loads.
