Stainless steel mesh is one of the most diverse materials to work with. Whether you are working indoors or outdoors, stainless steel mesh has a huge range of applications. Here at SRS Group, we utilise stainless steel tensile mesh on a wide range of jobs, including commercial and civil architecture projects.

Some of the most common uses of stainless steel mesh include:

  • Balustrade infills
  • Horizontal or vertical fall protection
  • Dividers
  • Façade cladding
  • Green walls
  • Design elements

Stainless steel is not only a great material to work with, but it also provides a highly desirable finish for design projects that makes it popular in modern day architecture. Stainless steel has skyrocketed in popularity over the past decade and it is very common to see stainless steel being used not only as a practical solution, but also for its pleasing aesthetic.


Customise your stainless steel mesh

When a material grows in popularity, there is a concern that designs will lose their originality. Thankfully this is not the case with stainless steel mesh. Due to its workability, stainless steel mesh is highly customisable. Tensile mesh, a material we have used on a wide range of projects, offers a range of customisable features that make it ideal for commercial and civil projects as well as some high-end domestic projects.

When it comes to the geometry of stainless steel mesh, we can customise the mesh width (MW) which refers to the distance from the centre of one clamp to the centre of the next clamp along the cable. When considering mesh netting geometry, the desired range is two equilateral triangles at 60-degree angles, which results in an ‘ideal tension’.

Tensile mesh is extremely versatile

Tensile mesh can be custom-made for any individual project. When we are considering the length and width of the mesh there are no limitations. However, we need to consider the point of installation and the statical, functional, environmental aspects, aesthetic aspects of the mesh, impact and any other loads that need to be considered.

We have installed tensile mesh on a huge range of projects, primarily as a safety feature for large civil projects, but also as a way of improving the overall aesthetics of a structure and softening the overall design.

Customisable colours

Not only can you customise the structure of the tensile mesh, but you can also customise it with colour.

This adds a new element of interior and exterior design opportunities. Whether you take a minimalistic approach using the standard colours – black, white or silver – or you want a pop of colour using green, blue, red or gold, our tensile mesh solutions can be customised to suit your requirements. We can even deliver custom colours that can be matched to brand colours on commercial buildings for example.

Add some light

Looking for more customisation? At SRS Group, we work with premium CarlStahl products including X-TEND – the original stainless steel mesh and X-LED – a connection of LED modules within the flexible X-TEND stainless steel wire rope.

This addition of light adds endless possibilities to the way we can design and create using stainless steel mesh.

Stainless steel mesh projects at SRS Group

At SRS Group, we have used stainless steel mesh on a wide range of projects. Many of our civil projects, including civil bridge work, has included the use of stainless steel mesh as a safety feature. Here are some examples of the projects we have worked on using stainless steel tensile mesh:

All of these projects feature the use of stainless steel mesh and you can read more about each of the projects above.

Speak to the team

If you have a project and you are looking for safety or design solutions that feature stainless steel tensile mesh, make sure you get in touch with the team today and we would be more than happy to talk you through some of the options available and show some of the work we have completed to date.
