This week we are shining the spotlight on our Vitramesh range. If you're not familiar with the product, it's a stunning mix of architectural metal and glass, which takes form in cladding projects, internal feature screens and decorative pieces.
The range itself is our variety of architectural meshes (generally woven or expanded metals), which can be laminated in glass to bring a whole new dimension to architectural projects.
Other than it's sheer wow factor, the products offer excellent versatility that can suit most budgets. And, keeping it clean is a much easier feat than cleaning just the mesh itself.
Like our other products, you have the choice to specify natural or coated/anodised finishes. But you have the added choice of colour or mirror backing effects on the glass.
The true beauty of the product is that you can use materials such as coppers, brasses and bronzes without the worry of oxidisation, and so the mesh is often laminated in its natural state.
Cadisch MDA's Managing Director, Anthony Millington says: "The range was developed to solve a problem whereby the architect wanted to use our Santana Stainless Steel mesh as a wall panel. But, being so fine it was impossible to fix to a frame and it fingerprinted easily.
"We thought of encapsulating it in resin, but the finish wasn't up to our standards. So we tried again in glass and it worked first time. This was 13 years ago and since then we have developed a whole range of meshes that have been designed solely for the purpose of laminating - one of the first (if not only) companies in the world to do so.
"Our clients like it because it has a delicately elegant feel to it, whilst being robust and relatively simple to install."
The mesh can be supplied as cut to length pieces or as whole rolls and are available in various thicknesses and weaves depending on the level of privacy, aesthetic, structural and safety requirements of your project.
