A perfect showcase of our Architectural Stainless Steel Cable Mesh, Flexi-Mesh. Flexi-Mesh was the perfect fit for the Snow Leopard Enclosure at Melbourne Zoo because of the following attributes;

1.Flexible- a multifunctional material that can be used to design a plane surface or can be tensioned into three-dimensional forms that create unique, elegant and lightweight tensile architecture.
2. ADAPTABLE – architectural cable mesh has multiple applications including balustrades, safety netting, zoological enclosures, tensile facades and art installations.
3. TENSILE STRENGTH – designers can implement creative ideas over large distances due to the extremely high load capacity and low relative weight of Flexi-Mesh AISI316 stainless steel material.
4. UNIQUE – Each panel is designed and manufactured to meet specific project requirements for our clients. Our engineering and design team can help undertake static load calculations and offer unique solutions to meet specific performance criteria for each project.
5. HIGH QUALITY – Flexi-Mesh is manufactured from hamma X Strand, the worlds leading marine and architectural stainless steel wire rope from South Korea, to ensure product quality, integrity and longevity.
6. REDUCED MAINTENANCE COSTS – made 100% from AISI316 stainless steel our products are remarkably strong, provide high performance under severe environmental conditions, protect against corrosion and rust and require very little maintenance over the life of the product.
