Transparent media facades
One focus is on the new generation of Mediamesh and Illumesh transparent media facade systems. With improved technology and an expanded range of applications, GKD continues the global success story of architecturally integrated mega displays made of metallic mesh. Customers can now choose from project-specific designs with six LEDs per pixel or RGB SMD LEDs for indoor and outdoor applications. A higher level of light intensity, even better image quality and, if required, a shorter viewing distance at reasonable prices open up completely new possibilities.
Large-scale ceiling structures
At BAU, GKD places another focus on metallic mesh ceiling systems. After the successful introduction of the Silentmesh acoustic ceiling system, ceilings of composite elements are the latest addition to the portfolio. Aluminium honeycomb supporting plates with a surface layer made of selected meshes guarantee an absolutely flat surface with a monolithic effect even for large-scale designs.
Prefabricated balustrade systems
The SAFEMesh balustrade system is GKD’s third innovation presented at BAU 2013 – this is a complete system consisting of panelled metallic mesh, frames, point fittings, posts and handrails. The outstanding aesthetic properties, coupled with a high level of safety and robustness while requiring minimal care, make the system the ideal alternative for both new developments and refurbishment projects.
Elegant roller shutters
Security is at the heart of the fourth system presented at BAU: motorised roller shutters made of flexible Licorne spiral mesh impress with their elegant yet robust design. They protect shop windows and shopping arcades from break-ins while allowing an unimpaired view of shop displays. The delicate structure harmoniously blends in with high-quality facades, and optimised side guide channels protect the mesh and ensure smooth lowering of the shutters.
