For many years, Cambridge’s metal mesh has been a top choice among retrofitters, architects, designers and commercial developers looking for an elegant, high-end finish to accent and protect elevator cab interiors.
Cambridge is the North American pioneer in applying durable woven metal mesh to elevator interiors having first outfitted elevator cabs in New York’s Seagram Building on Park Avenue in 1957. The same mesh is still found there today.
More recent Cambridge elevator interior projects have been completed or are underway at Carnegie Hall, The Empire State Building and 220 Madison Ave. in New York City, the San Francisco Public Safety Building, The Arlington in Boston, Gensler’s Houston office and Yahoo headquarters in Sunnyvale, California.
Cambridge high volume metal mesh patterns for elevator cladding include:
• Channel (29SS): Stainless Steel; 4 pounds per square foot; maximum width 120 inches
• Plaza (75A): Stainless Steel; 3.70 pounds per square foot; maximum width 60 inches
• Sawgrass (88A): Stainless Steel; 3.57 pounds per square foot; maximum width 60 inches
• Stipple (19A): Stainless Steel; 3.57 pounds per square foot; maximum width 60 inches
Cambridge Architectural also offers the option of providing framed panels for quick installation in the elevator cab. The mesh on the panels is bonded to medium density fiberboard (MDF), framed with stainless steel J-Trim and includes Z-shaped mounting clips on the rear.
