Decorative Plating Secondary Finishes

A decorative antique plated finish can truly bring out the texture of a woven wire mesh in ways that other coatings cannot. Antique finishes bring out the depth and texture of the weave while solid colors bring out the transparency characteristics with a splace of color.The thin layer of metal does not mask the detail of the wire mesh but rather highlights it. The antique plated finish process introduces a dark oxide layer over top of the bright plated alloy. Then, visual depth is created by physically relieving the high points of the wire mesh allowing the bright plated alloy to show through. A thin layer of lacquer is applied after plating to help preserve the finish from further tarnishing. More

Frost Tower

The design concept of Frost Tower in San Antonio, Texas by Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects called for a stunning wall covering that provided visual interest and a glowing effect. The design team thoughtfully chose Banker Wire’s M22-80 woven wire mesh in a stainless steel and brass mixed alloy configuration. To enhance the color and sparkling visual effect of M22-80, custom mirror panels spanning 28 feet high were placed several inches behind the wire mesh to leverage the mix of alloys, lighting, and unique pairing of finishes. The depth and movement of the beautifully contrasting woven wires dynamically change as the viewer’s perspective changes. The open percentage of the M22-80 pattern creates a double image reflection in the m... More
