Application

The Pennsylvania Welcome Center at the Delaware Water Gap was designed to reflect a modern, contemporary style. Cambridge Architectural’s woven metal fabric application lends a unique look to the structure's sleek interior. Rigid woven metal mesh panels create a dramatic contrast with other interior design elements, while serving as an attractive backdrop and durable adornment for the interior reception area.

Overall, the modern look of the structure flows seamlessly from the exterior to the interior, with a mix of concrete and granite veneer, stainless steel mesh walls, granite flooring, metal ceiling panels and cement.

Function

Most materials chosen for the project are practically indestructible, like Cambridge’s woven metal mesh. The rigid metal fabric selected for the walls performs exceedingly well in high-traffic areas, like the lobby, which serves thousands of visitors each day. Woven metal is most often manufactured from stainless steel, which inherently resists scratches, denting and corrosion.

Benefit

The woven metal fabric application is virtually maintenance-free, which reduces costs associated with upkeep. Additionally, the stainless steel mesh is extremely resilient, minimizing potential financial loss from flood or other damage. In the event of flooding, the stainless steel material can be easily cleaned with a soft cloth, water-soluble detergent, or even a vacuum cleaner.

Rooftop gardens, geothermal heating and cooling, ample windows for daylighting and sustainable products like architectural mesh, all contributed to the project's Silver LEED® certification submission. Cambridge’s applications are often specified for projects where green building materials are required, since it is readily recyclable and is comprised of a high amount of recycled material. The woven metal mesh system also maintains a long lifecycle, which minimizes the need for replacement.
