10 Advantages of Stainless Steel Webnet Wire Mesh

August 2020

1. It’s malleable and flexible
Webnet wire mesh has a fabric-like structure which makes it very useful for ‘wrapping’ around unusually shaped structures and shapes. Examples of this include being used to provide safety in car parks, at sports grounds and in children’s playgrounds.
2. A durable, low maintenance material
Webnet wire mesh is extremely durable and strong, made from marine grade 316 stainless steel, Webnet is suitable for projects that require longevity. Also, Webnet requires little to no maintenance after installation.
3. Provides fall protection
Webnet can be used to create fall protection for a variety of applications, including on bridges, car parks, balconies and elevated walkways.
4. Useful in green façades
Façade greening can be created using Webnet, creating a robust structure for plants to grow up – providing aesthetic and ecological benefits.
5. Handles heavy loads
The ability to handle large loads is an advantage of Webnet, as it makes it suitable for fall protection and is able to cope with the weight of plants on large scale green walls.
6. Provides wall replacements
Defining separate spaces can be achieved with Webnet as it is able to act as a wall, proving to be particularly useful in small spaces to separate areas whilst still allowing for a flow of light.
7. Can create animal enclosures
Animal enclosures can be fabricated using Webnet wire mesh systems, creating enclosures that allow animals to roam freely. Webnet comes in various apertures and sizes to suit the application.
8. Light, attractive design
The light, filigree design of Webnet provides safety without having a negative impact on the design of a structure and without blocking the flow of light.
9. Use for artistic or business purposes
Artistic facades can be created using Webnet, by attaching steel plates in a configuration that creates a pattern, logo or company name. Available in a wide range of colours, they can also be coated with reflective film so that it can even be seen at night. Read more about Jakob Webnet ID plates here.
10. Can be coloured as desired
Depending on a project’s requirements, Webnet can be painted in a number of colours in a range of finishes.

Fall Protection for Building and Bridge Infrastructure

August 2020

Building regulations in the UK stipulate that structures such as car parks, balconies, stairways, bridges and elevated walkways must have safety systems in place to prevent accidental falls and injuries. Jakob’s range of high quality, high performance stainless steel products provides solutions to meet design and safety compliance standards, providing visually appealing fall protection for building and bridge infrastructure.

Car Parks
When providing protection in a car park, Webnet wire mesh can be a lower cost alternative to enclosing the entire structure. The system’s open structure allows natural ventilation through – and natural light into the structure, whilst allowing fumes from cars to be released. Webnet protection also deters anti-social behaviour. As well as these performance benefits, a Webnet façade can also provide a green wall for one (or more) of a car park’s elevations, and even a framework for artistic displays.

The car park at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital in Liverpool is a great example of the system in use, with Webnet being used to enclose the gaps on the sides and on the top floor of the car park.

Bridges
Providing fall protection on bridges has often led to the view from the structure being compromised. However, used in an optimal rope diameter and aperture size, Webnet can create a non-climbable safety barrier on bridges without blocking the views or detracting from the architectural design or aesthetic of the bridge. In addition, Webnet can be used to create subtle catch nets underneath the structure of bridges.

For example, Webnet has been installed on the 1,450 metre high Ganter Bridge in Switzerland; providing safety, without impacting on the beautiful views.

Balconies
To meet building regulations and prevent falls, balconies must be protected with balustrading that is not climbable. Webnet wire mesh provides the ideal balustrading infill, its filigree-like appearance meeting building safety regulations, whilst also adding architectural value. When being used for balcony balustrading, the system can be customised using our Webnet ID product, allowing for screens, logos, signs, and art to be easily and effectively created.

Staircases
The unobtrusive appearance of Webnet wire mesh makes it a great product for providing safety on staircases. Available in made to measure sizing, Webnet can be retrofitted onto pre-existing staircase balustrades, or installed in frames with posts and handrails to create a new and complete system. Webnet wire mesh can also be used to create safety curtains on staircases, providing free-standing safety that can create a striking design feature. Providing fall protection with a sleek and modern design, Webnet is a popular choice for staircase safety, both indoors and out.

Elevated Walkways
Any walkway situated at height must provide protection against falls. Made from marine grade 316 stainless steel, Webnet is a flexible and versatile material that can be used to enclose such structures for safety purposes, securing elevated walkways both inside and outside, and requiring little to no maintenance.

The London Monument viewing platform is a great example of Webnet being used to secure an elevated walkway.
