X-TEND Product Details
X-TEND® stainless mesh fabric is a unique, patented fabric that is as flexible as you are. It is the only 100% stainless steel product in the world to gracefully and beautifully adapt to your most challenging 3-D tensile project.
It is constructed of AISI 316 stainless steel cables and seamless ferrules to make a resilient metal fabric that forms a diamond pattern as it is installed. Diamond sizes range from 20mm to 200mm and cable diameters from 1.0mm to 4.0mm to match your design requirements.
Extremely strong yet transparent, it practically disappears when installed. It is nonflammable and allows ample light and airflow so it functions well in parking garages and fire escapes.
It complies with all state and national building codes. Its flexible diamond pattern is climb resistant and prevents a secure foothold. It’s especially appropriate for children’s activity such as museums, schools, and recreational fields.
Manufactured in an ISO14001 certified facility, XTEND® is a sustainable building element. It is maintenance-free, corrosion-resistant, requires no caustic cleaners or coatings, and is fully recyclable. It is particularly well suited for even the harshest climates.
X-TEND’s ability to act as a 3-D structural element reduces the need for traditional building materials while permitting high load capacity and long spans. The result is a light, scalable, low-mass structure with greatly reduced material and installation costs.
Mesh panels and installation hardware arrive ready to install. Once installed, it requires no adjustment and retains its shape and resiliency indefinitely.
Specialized design services including tensile engineering, statics, and 3-D modeling are available.
Applications for X-TEND® include balustrading, vertical greening, zoo enclosures, and safety applications. Its unique 3-D characteristics allow amazing design flexibility. Ask us for more information about this unique material.
