Cladding a building with perforated metal is a very effective way to enliven the facade of what would otherwise be a simple cubed structure.
Perforated cladding has the ability to add depth, texture and intrigue to a façade. With over 1000 different perforated patterns at our disposal, we offer freedom of choice and superior quality to suit the needs of your project, large or small.
Pattern perforated mesh facades comprise of bespoke perforated panels that use the latest computer software to pixelate images, logos, letters and numbers. Applied to one or a number of panels, providing the designer with an ability to scale up images by ‘jigsaw-ing’ the cladding to create a single image across the entire façade, making your building stand out from the crowd.
A precision engineered and completely integrated facade solution that has enabled expanded mesh cladding to become the defining feature of some of the world’s most remarkable buildings. The expanded mesh manufacturing process produces a three-dimensional material which can be opaque when viewed from one direction, and transparen from the other.
Rainscreen Façades are cladding systems applied either during the initial construction or as over-cladding for refurbishment of an existing building. They provide a weather resistant decorative skin, fixed to a structure by means of a supporting grid, and maintain a cavity which is ventilated and drained, between itself and the primary structure.
Two Point Seven Facades Ltd offer a complete design package for our Architectural Mesh Facades, which includes the structural framing and your choice of Expanded Mesh & Perforated Mesh .
Through the design of both the supporting structure and cladding panels, our co-ordinated detailing provides a robust, fast and cost effective approach to facade design and installation.
The exterior of a building, its facade or envelope, plays an important role in how we see and use a building . Building envelopes have received significant upgrades in the past 30 years with ventilated facades becoming more and more popular.
The Benefits of Ventilated Facades
With new construction techniques, styles and the ever changing demands on how we use and adapt a building, the building envelopes appearance is increasingly important. Modern techniques allow us to clad buildings with a wide variety of materials such as aluminium, stainless steel, weathering or Corten Steel.
These can all be manufactured to produce striking facades in either expanded mesh, perforated mesh, or pattern perforated mesh, in various shapes and sizes. This allows architects to develop designs, which allow the building to stand out from the crowd.
With the use of integrated architectural lighting, within the cladded envelope, Architects and occupiers can have the best of both worlds. A subtle building design, which at the flick of a switch turns into a media platform or a beacon, drawing your attention.
Why are ventilated facades so good?
There are many reasons why ventilated exterior cladding systems are used other than the aesthetics. They can increase thermal performance and heat defection. They can also reduce energy consumption and provide an overall improvement in the buildings acoustics. By wrapping a building with an independent second skin, you are isolating the inner construction from the exterior environment.
Ventilated building facades can be constructed from a variety of hardwearing materials, allowing the building to withstand more harsh environments and chemical based pollution attacks which modern city life results in, it can also be argued that a facade skin also reduces maintenance costs.
Another of the benefits which ventilated facades offer is the costs effective and relatively instant capability to transform a building’s exterior in a short space of time. Adding a ventilated facade to a building can be done on most pre-existing buildings, regeneration projects and new builds.
