Our X-TEND cable mesh and I-SYS stainless steel cables are used in the elevated pedestrian walkways of WildWoods at Fernbank Museum of Natural History. Museum visitors are taken on a stunning journey through nature into the Fernbank Forest. Check out Architectural Record's article (and video!) here.
X-TEND® 1.5mm x 70mm is used in the breezeway and hand railings in the three-story atrium of The Engineering Education and Research Center (EERC) at the University of Texas, Austin.
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)
