Application:
The Empire State Building is the most iconic building on New York City’s Skyline. The 102-story skyscraper is home to more than 1,000 businesses in 2.7 million square feet of office space. Visitors can observe breathtaking views of the city on the 86th and 102nd floor observatories. In 2008, Cambridge Architectural metal mesh was installed to modernize and clad interior elevator doors on the building’s 68 elevator cabs.

Function:
Chosen by Beyer, Blinder, and Belle Architects, the dappled brushed aluminum surface of Cambridge’s Stipple mesh stands up to traffic faced by the Empire State Building every day. The pattern offers a distinct finish and design to modernize the legendary building.

Benefit:
The durability of Cambridge’s mesh will protect elevator interiors from scratches and dents while assuring there is no need for replacement materials.
