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 with coloured stainless steel cables coloured with an emission-free polymer layer - cable diameter ø 1,5/2/3 mm, black also in ø 1,0 mm
The ferrules can be ordered with inox-finish or blackened.
