The Russell Towers Student Residence at Fitchburg State College consists of 38 interconnected living areas in its nine-story building. A Cambridge Architectural mesh system is used on the stair railings as fall protection featuring vivid angles that boast a contemporary aesthetic.
Cambridge Architectural’s mesh systems require virtually no maintenance while offering unmatched durability, exhibiting endurance to scratches and dents typically unavoidable by the approximately 450 students that travel the resident tower’s stairwells. Cambridge’s mesh is sure to maintain its structure while providing an added layer of security that accentuates the staircase.
Cambridge Architectural metal mesh systems are sustainable and fundamentally indestructible. Their longevity, lifecycle and durable construction from hand-woven stainless steel make it a worry-free element for interiors. Beyond its product benefits, Cambridge provides full engineering support for its systems, and honors a Gross Maximum Pricing model – assuring clients that regardless of how the project’s needs change, Cambridge’s price will not.
All Cambridge systems incorporate recycled content and are 100% recyclable. Cambridge Architectural is an active member of the USGBC® and helps architects take maximum advantage of LEED credit through the many categories in which architectural mesh systems apply.
