Webnet for architecture

The wire mesh Webnet has the skin-like characteristics of a diaphragm. It can form a plane surface but can also be tensioned into three-dimensional forms featuring tunne-type, cylindrical, or spherical shapes. The mesh out of high-grade stainless steel is highly compatible with creative contemporary architecture. It is elegant and unobtrusive, yet it is an architectural element in its own right. Webnet is manufactured tailor-made for a specific project and can create any spatial structure. In combination with stainless steel ropes, rods or tubes, it is an attractive design element. By choosing an appropriate cable diameter and the option to paint them in all colours of the RAL spectre, there are endless possibilities for using Webnet as a design element that also serves functional purposes.

Cables for architecture

Jakob Rope Systems offers a broad range of cables with complementary rods and end terminations. Cables allow to realise elegant, reliable and economical architectural solutions that go well with almost any material, be it concrete, glass or wood. Cables can be used everywhere, where tensile forces have to be absorbed, for example

  • as elegant suspensions for concrete or glass elements
  • as bottom chords for concrete or wood ceilings
  • as supporting cables for light or signalling technique
  • as railing infills
