Cambridge Architectural is introducing a volume stock program for specific woven metal mesh patterns used primarily in elevator cab cladding applications.

Cambridge Architectural will maintain an inventory of its Classic range of high-volume patterns including Channel 29SS, Plaza 75A, Sawgrass 88A and Stipple 19A, enabling customers to take advantage of lower prices along with shorter delivery times.

Cambridge pioneered the application of durable woven metal mesh to elevator interiors in North America, having first outfitted elevator cabs in New York’s Seagram Building on Park Avenue in 1957. The same mesh is still found there today.

Cambridge’s metal mesh is highly popular among retrofitters, architects, designers and commercial developers seeking an elegant, high-end finish to accent and protect elevator cab interiors.

Recent Cambridge elevator interior projects include the Carnegie Hall, The Empire State Building and 220 Madison Avenue in New York City, the San Francisco Public Safety Building, The Arlington in Boston, Gensler’s Houston office and Yahoo headquarters in Sunnyvale, California.

According to Cambridge Brand Manager Gary Compton, a high quantity of custom-order elevator cladding has been sold to customers over the years; however, with advancements in technology and increased demand for product due to the resurgent building construction industry, the company is able to pre-stock these high volume patterns to better serve customers with the assurance of quick turnaround.

Cambridge high volume metal mesh patterns for elevator cladding include Channel (29SS): Stainless Steel; 4 lbs./sq. ft.; maximum width 120”; Plaza (75A): Stainless Steel; 3.70 lbs./sq. ft.; maximum width 60”; Sawgrass (88A): Stainless Steel; 3.57 lbs./sq. ft.; maximum width 60”; and Stipple (19A): Stainless Steel; 3.57 lbs./sq. ft.; maximum width 60”.

Cambridge Architectural also optionally offers framed panels for quick installation in the elevator cab. The mesh on the panels is bonded to medium density fibreboard (MDF) and framed with stainless steel J-Trim with Z-shaped mounting clips on the rear.

Cambridge Architectural’s Elevator Cladding brochure provides useful technical information and photos of 39 distinctive mesh patterns.
