Martinez Amtrak Station Pedestrian Bridge and Cambridge Architectural Mesh

How to Skywalk with Metal Mesh

Woven stainless steel mesh from Cambridge Architectural is a perfect choice for enclosing exterior pedestrian bridges, skywalks or overpasses that help commuters cross waterways, rail lines, highways and parking areas.

While enhancing the aesthetics of overhead crossings, our metal fabric protects walkers, ventilates area ways and offers unobstructed views from above and below. In addition, mesh can be curved and shaped to deter climbing and prevent thrown objects.

Using etching and powder-coating techniques, we can incorporate branding, lettering and artistic designs within the mesh panels as seen in our company’s newest span at the Martinez, California Amtrak Station.

In partnership with Metal-Arch — also in Cambridge Maryland — we etched the Martinez name and accompanying bay grass designs by sandblasting the raw stainless steel. The process created a texturized, dull matte finish that formed the letters and grasses. The pedestrian bridge project has been featured in industry publications including Progressive Rail Roading and California Construction News.

Other Cambridge skywalk and pedestrian bridge design projects include the Bay Area’s Robert I. Schroder Overcrossing, Everett Rail Station in Washington, and the DART bridge in Dallas (video link).
