X-TEND Product Details

X-TENDX-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 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.
