The pinnacle of aesthetics and function: architectural mesh for facades

From the Suzanne Lenglen stadium in the Stade Roland Garros tennis complex in Paris, the Samsung parking garage in Silicon Valley to the FIFA headquarters in Zurich – architectural meshes from GKD clothe the facades of the most diverse and extraordinary buildings around the world. In addition to meeting the highest aesthetic demands, their functionality is impressive in combination with our fastening systems and TENSIOMESH®.

Safety at the highest level

All GKD quality products are developed and manufactured in certified processes (ISO 9001, ISO 50001, ISO 14001 and ISO 45001). Our expert advice and comprehensive services, which range from planning to installation and maintenance, additionally guarantee maximum safety.

Aesthetics in numerous facets

In addition to a wide selection of different fabric types, we offer a variety of finishing options and many color shades – for creative design and individual combination of your architectural design.

Energy efficient solar protection

Used as building facades, our architectural fabrics provide transparency and help save energy. They are designed to regulate the energy input into the building – and thus enable an optimized energy balance throughout the year and at different angles of incidence of solar radiation. For many of our architectural fabrics, we have already determined the energy transmittance gtotal in conjunction with reference glazing. We will be happy to provide you with these values and support you in combining fabrics and reference glazing for which test values are not yet available.

Durability as standard

Thanks to high-quality materials, our products are characterized by high durability. They are ideally suited for all architectural applications – indoors and outdoors. The long product durability is on the one hand directly related to aspects of safety and protection, and also has a positive impact in terms of sustainability.

Versatile, adaptable and combinable: The Modular Ceiling System

Discover completely new possibilities for ceiling design and construction – with our modular ceiling system for small and large rooms.

Flexible installation

Thanks to the simple plug-in system of the Modular Ceiling System, architectural meshes for suspended ceilings in interior areas can be flexibly assembled and installed on site, so that even deviations from plans no longer present any difficulties.

Optimized room acoustics

The Modular Ceiling System can be combined with many of the available architectural fabrics as well as regulating room acoustic elements. In combination with a thin layer of fleece, the substructure becomes invisible. This allows the surface structure of the fabric panels to be fully appreciated and ensures a clear ceiling design.

Excitement guaranteed with TENSIOMESH®.

To ensure the safety and longevity of architectural mesh facades, the right fastening with appropriate pretensioning plays a key role. Our solution: TENSIOMESH®.
