X-TEND® 2.0mm x 40mm stainless cable mesh with border cables is used as vertical fall restraint on the pedestrian bridge connecting The Fairmont Hotel and the Austin Convention Center.
The newly completed Africa Rocks exhibit at the San Diego Zoo features an outdoor area with a mesh surface of about 17,000 square meters supported by nine steel pylons. A barely perceptible, filigree stainless steel cable mesh construction is the only separation between humans and animals. To create appropriate habitats for the various animals, exact planning, statical analysis, and on-site assembly were required. (Photos: Mike Torrey)
