The Fusion of Elegance, Practicality and Modernity
Launched by Cadisch MDA, Vitramesh offers a stunning mix of architectural metal and glass, which takes form in cladding projects, internal feature screens and decorative pieces.
The range itself is a 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 the sheer wow factor that you get with the product, it also offers excellent versatility that can suit most budgets and keeping it clean is a much simpler task than cleaning just the mesh itself.
As with other Cadisch MDA products, the designer has the choice of natural or coated/anodised finishes, but with the additional options of colour or mirror backing effects on the glass.
But, the true beauty of the range is that designers can use materials such as coppers, brasses and bronzes without the worry of oxidisation, and so often the mesh is laminated in its natural state.
It’s become increasingly popular in recent years, featuring in projects for brands such as Jimmy Choo, Harrods and PRS Music, as well as in many of London’s most prestigious commercial offices.
Managing Director of Cadisch MDA Anthony Millington commented: “The product was developed to solve a problem whereby the architect wanted to use our Santana 150 stainless steel mesh as a wall panel but being so fine, it was impossible to fix to a frame. Plus, 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 out 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 the only company, 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.
