Cable mesh, PC mesh and spiral mesh

Metal meshes can be assigned to the three groups of cable mesh, PC mesh and spiral mesh based on their production process. With this diverse product portfolio, you can always find the right mesh for your architectural application at GKD.

Cable meshes

Cable meshes are the most versatile stainless steel meshes for the field of architecture. They are made of stainless steel ribbon wires (warp wire), which are interwoven with round stainless steel wires (weft wire). With mesh elements up to 30 m long and up to 8 m wide, large façade and wall cladding installations can be achieved. Depending on the function, security, transparency, wind and sun protection requirements can be met.

  • Many cable meshes are available on reels in widths of up to 6 m.
  • Cable meshes are, for example, ideal for roller blinds or roll-up solar protection elements. Depending on the mesh type, metal meshes boast excellent solar properties – particularly when the sun is high in the sky.
  • Even emergency exit stairwells, the Cinderella of architecture, can become eye-catchers with cable mesh.
  • The Omega meshes enjoy a special place among the cable meshes. With this type, it is possible to produce different apertures within a woven web.
  • With all stainless steel cable meshes, the weft wires can be color-coated.
  • GKD has developed special fixing elements for all cable meshes.

PC or rigid mesh

PC meshes are produced in stainless steel and aluminium. The designation PC comes from the term “pre-crimped”. These metal meshes are made of monofilament wires in both directions. At least one wire direction is crimped.

  • Many PC meshes are stocked in standard dimensions of 3 x 1 m and 2.5 x 1.25 m.
  • Due to their panel-like appearance, rigid meshes are ideally suited to ceilings or panelling between balustrades, depending on the material.
  • In connection with the CMP system, aluminum meshes such as Alu 6010 are predestined for use in acoustic ceilings.
  • With the Safemesh balustrade system in combination with Atlantic, PC-Omega, PC-Sambesi and PC-Tigris meshes, GKD offers a certified system in compliance with the ITB guideline.
  • Since many PC meshes have the same look as the corresponding cable meshes, e.g. PC-Omega and Omega, this allows a homogeneous design of façades and balustrades.
  • PC meshes are mounted either using one of the systems described above or in a frame that is dimensioned in line with the respective building’s static requirements.



Spiral mesh

Spiral meshes are available in stainless steel and aluminum. The metal meshes are produced from flat ribbon spirals, which are connected to a straight or crimped round rod.

  • All spiral meshes are produced to order and are therefore not kept in stock.
  • GKD offers two product lines:
  • Escale spiral mesh: Escale 7×1, Escale 5×1. Thanks to a special connection process, metal meshes made of Escale 7×1 are ideally suited to applications requiring visually seamless cladding of three-dimensional objects.
  • Licorne spiral mesh: 13a, 21a, 24a (a=aluminum) 18i, 26i, 27i (i=inox/stainless steel). Architectural meshes in the Licorne range are mainly used indoors or as roll-up solar protection.
  • The slide-in flat profile with clevis screws is the recommended attachment method, particularly for larger elements.
