Many years ago now, CARL STAHL ARCHITECTURE came up with an innovative construction element that combines protection with aesthetic design: X-TEND. The potential applications for stainless steel mesh are exceptionally varied both indoors and outdoors. Amongst other things, it is used as balustrade in-fill, horizontal or vertical fall protection, dividers, façade cladding, green wall systems or simply very flexible design elements. Architecturally ambitious zoolutions such as lightweight, free-flight aviaries or big-cat enclosures with three-dimensional, curvilinear geometries are also built using X-TEND stainless steel netting. They are just one of the many specialities of CARL STAHL ARCHITECTURE’s experienced planners and wire rope specialists.
X-TEND is manufactured from robust, high-grade DIN 1.4401/AISI 316 stainless steel cables. The cables are swaged with tinned copper (type CX) or stainless steel (types CXE and CXS) clamps in a special process to form a mesh structure that is both stressable and flexible and suited for either two- or three-dimensional applications. X-TEND keeps its shape indefinitely and stands for long lasting use.
X-TEND INVISIBLY GUIDED
X-TEND stainless steel cable mesh consisting of cable ø 1.5 mm or 2,0mm and in mesh widths of 40, 50 and 60 mm is held inside of rebated frames. There are different versions of slotted stainless steel frame profiles. The custom-made frames mounted with X-TEND mesh are available with rectangular or polygonal geometry (diagonal staircase frames, transition frames). In case of long frame lengths, intermediate rods are feasible.
