Woven metal mesh produced by Cambridge Architectural is included in the 2020 modernization of the older areas of Tulsa’s Cox Business Convention Center. The stainless steel fabric provides a protective barrier on the new entry stairway while adding an appealing reflective aesthetic to the sun-lit lobby.
Cambridge’s Scale mesh with 59 percent open area was also selected for interior accents during the center’s 2008 ballroom expansion, according to Cecil Ricks, President and Director of Architecture and Interior Design, for Matrix in Tulsa.
“Now and back then, we liked the scale and the openness of the mesh pattern and how despite being very open, it reflected enough light to create a nice exciting sparkle as you entered the lobby.”
Cambridge’s Eclipsed tensioned hardware was angled at the top and used to attach the infill mesh to the stair frame by Oklahoma Stair Craft.
Other notable buildings incorporating Cambridge mesh as a stairway infill include New York’s Carnegie Hall and the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. Popular alloys for mesh stairway infill by Cambridge include brass, bronze, and stainless steel.
