The most common use for architectural PVC mesh is for shading and solar protection. Since the yarns are the same as in solid architectural fabrics, the same tensile structures can be accomplished with the benefit of lower wind effects.
Architectural PVC meshes are also popular to create facade panels and wall panels. The transparency is a great benefit for wall applications. The specific mesh is selected in function of wind load resistance and expected deflection as a function of prestress and dimensioning.
Architectural meshes combine the benefits of energy saving by limiting solar heat gain, retaining transparency and creating an interesting architectural aesthetic.
A special type of mesh fabric, with micro perforations, is used as an acoustical liner. Serge Ferrari’s Alphalia Silent (formerly Batyline Aw) is the most popular.
