OKATECH wire mesh

Insulating Glass with Wire Mesh Insert

Glass facades with wire mesh inserts always set visual accents. The metal fabric in different types of materials and thicknesses are not only attractive elements of design but also fulfill high requirements on sun and glare-protection and allow views to the outside.

During the day, they give the building shell a special glow and the façade has a metallic shimmer in the sunlight. At night, when artificial light is used, they allow deep views into the interior. In addition to façades and parapets, OKATECH wire mesh is also suited for sophisticated interior design applications.
