The timeless tone of brass is trending once again in interiors. More aged than gold and warmer than silver, brass has a unique appeal and can add a luxurious vibe when used with materials such as marble and wood.
Why use brass in interiors?
A bold new trend in interior design, brass can oxidise or tarnish over time, giving it a distinct weathered look that actually adds to the charm.
From a functional perspective, brass has excellent corrosion resistance and can be recycled an infinite number of times, which has significant environmental and economic advantages.
Brass woven wire mesh
Architectural wire mesh typically refers to woven wire mesh, a pliable mesh created by weaving longitudinal and transverse wires together to create tension. Because it can bend without breaking, woven wire mesh is ideal for balustrades, balconies, screening and ventilation. Also, since it can conform to any shape, woven wire mesh is also used for interior decoration and artistic applications.
Brass woven wire mesh is widely used in architecture and interiors for function and appearance.

Aperture is the term used when specifying wire mesh and indicates the measurement between wires, or the size of the opening in the mesh.
An alloy of copper and zinc, brass has a number of applications in the construction industry. It can be used exclusively for its stunning decorative look in buildings, in areas such as locks or door knobs where there is a low friction requirement.
Mesh count is the number of wires per inch (25.4mm) in the wire mesh roll. Dense mesh will have a higher mesh count.
Open area percentage
The open area percentage tells you how much of the sheet is made up of holes, and how much is made up of metal. It is an essential consideration when understanding if a profile meets specific performance, design and strength needs.
Architectural mesh is available in different wire diameters, from the finest 0.6mm to the thickest 1.6mm.
