#Meshspotting – October round-up

#Meshspotting – October round-up

Our #meshspotting campaign is showcasing the many properties and capabilities of expanded metal mesh and highlighting where and how it is used all over the world.

Here’s a round-up of the best of October’s submissions…

Guatapé, Colombia – ornamental frame

Expanded metal mesh can be found all over the world - here it is in a market in Guatapé, Colombia! This was kindly submitted by Jo Lloyd from our team at The Expanded Metal Company.

La Sagrada Família, Barcelona – security fencing

Expanded metal security fencing is used to protect high risks sites such as Barcelona’s famous landmark. Richard Holmes at Horizon Works sent this in. Click here for some info on our own high security fencing ranges.


Valletta, Malta - the Barrakka lift

Clad in expanded metal mesh, this is one of Malta’s most striking tourist attractions. It links Lascaris Wharf to St. Peter and Paul Bastion and the Upper Barrakka Garden. This was kindly submitted by Peter North of PS Mesh And Engineering. For more information on our own architectural mesh, click here.


Oliver Bonas, Bloomsbury, London – staircase

This use of expanded metal on a staircase in the Oliver Bonas really enhances the feeling of light and space in the store. This was submitted by Paul Bushnell of The Expanded Metal Company. There’s more information on our expanded metal for balustrades here.


Niketown, London – display stands

A really impressive use of mesh here to provide eye catching shop displays - thanks to Paul Bushnell for this image. There is more information on the kind of meshes we offer for shopfitting here.


Guinness Storehouse, Dublin – internal architectural cladding

Submitted by Jo Lloyd, this shows how expanded metal mesh can be used to achieve striking (and useful) visual effects – in this case directional arrows. There are more details on architectural meshes here.
