What began as a simple design to enhance flood control in Frederick, MD, Carroll Creek Park has become a central focus of revitalization for the city. The expansion included new office, retail and home construction, as well as an amphitheater, gazebo, and three new pedestrian bridges.
A Cambridge architectural mesh system was specified for the bridge central to the park design – a single-column suspension bridge designed by HNTB Architecture – which used Mid-Balance mesh and Eclipse™ attachments as railing infill.
The Cambridge Architectural solution provides fall protection to pedestrians and a unique aesthetic to the park. By using woven metal mesh, the bridge is virtually maintenance-free, requiring only an occasional cleaning without the need for harsh chemicals or special equipment.
Cambridge Architectural mesh systems are sustainable and are fundamentally indestructible. Their longevity, lifecycle and durable construction from handwoven stainless steel, make them an ideal choice for environments exposed to the elements. All Cambridge systems incorporate recycled content and are 100% recyclable. Cambridge Architectural is an active member of the USGBC®
