Aluminum meshes

In Codina Architectural, we work mainly with four metals, each one with different treatments and finishes. In this page we will see the main characteristics of the aluminum meshes we offer; we will see their properties, the available treatments, the different uses we can give them and the most popular aluminum meshes of this house. The other metals we work with are stainless steel, copper and brass.

Aluminum properties

Aluminum mesh by Codina Architectural

Aluminum is known for its light weight, which makes it an ideal material for use in architectural mesh. Due to its low density, aluminum mesh is easy to handle, transport and install, making it an attractive option for architects and builders. Especially for beautifying interiors.

Durability is another outstanding property of aluminum mesh. Aluminum is inherently corrosion resistant and will not rust, making it ideal for use in humid environments. They are a durable, low-maintenance option for architectural projects. In addition, aluminum is a non-combustible material, which makes it safe in terms of fire resistance and makes it a suitable choice for fire protection applications in buildings.

Versatility is another outstanding advantage of aluminum mesh. These meshes can be designed and manufactured in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, patterns and finishes to suit the specific requirements of each architectural project. Aluminum mesh can be used in a wide range of architectural applications but offers special versatility in interior applications, such as room dividers, curtains, ceilings and decorative design elements. In addition, anodized mesh can be painted in a wide variety of colors to complement the aesthetics of any architectural project.

Aluminum mesh also offers advantages in terms of energy efficiency and sustainability. Aluminum is a 100% recyclable material and can be infinitely recycled without losing its physical properties. This makes aluminum mesh an environmentally friendly option for sustainable architectural projects and green building certifications. In addition, aluminum mesh can be designed with patterns that allow natural light and ventilation, which helps reduce heat loads in buildings and improve energy efficiency.

Anodized aluminum: a durable and aesthetic solution for architectural projects

Anodized aluminum is a type of aluminum surface finish that offers numerous advantages over untreated aluminum. The anodizing process involves subjecting aluminum to an electrolytic treatment that creates a layer of aluminum oxide on the surface of the metal, resulting in a tough, durable coating with unique aesthetic properties. In the context of architectural projects, anodized aluminum has become a popular choice due to its advantages in terms of appearance, strength and durability.

One of the main advantages of anodized aluminum is its aesthetic appearance. The aluminum oxide layer created during the anodizing process can be tinted in a wide variety of colors, allowing for customization and flexibility in terms of architectural design. The colors of anodized aluminum are durable and fade-resistant, ensuring that the appearance of the material will remain intact over time, even under adverse conditions. In addition, anodized aluminum has a modern, sophisticated look that fits well with contemporary architectural styles, making it a popular choice for cutting-edge architectural projects.

Another advantage of anodized aluminum is its strength and durability. The aluminum oxide layer created during the anodizing process is extremely hard and resistant to abrasion, corrosion and chemical agents. This makes it suitable for use in restaurants, bathrooms, first floors and spaces where it is exposed to moisture and atmospheric contaminants. Anodized aluminum is also scratch resistant, making it suitable for applications in high traffic areas or uses that require handling of the mesh such as curtains where resistance to damage is essential to maintain the appearance of the material over time.

In addition, anodized aluminum offers increased corrosion resistance compared to untreated aluminum. The aluminum oxide layer created during the anodizing process acts as a protective barrier that prevents moisture and other corrosive agents from coming into contact with the metal, significantly reducing the risk of corrosion.

The corrosion resistance of anodized aluminum also contributes to its long service life, making it a sustainable choice for architectural projects. With greater durability and resistance to damage, anodized aluminum can have a longer service life compared to untreated aluminum.

Applications of aluminum meshes in architecture

Aluminum mesh is a very versatile and useful material in architecture due to its various advantages. Its main difference with Codina’s other metals is its lightness and the beauty and versatility of its finishes. This makes it especially attractive for interior projects. Below, we describe some of the advantages of aluminum mesh in each of the applications:

  • Aluminum curtains: Codina Architectural’s aluminum screens allow natural light to enter and air to circulate. Aluminum is ideal for curtains because its lightness makes it easier to move them. See aluminum curtains made with mesh from Codina Architectural.
  • Aluminum mesh for retail stores: Aluminum mesh is ideal for stores and stores. They can be used to embellish shop windows, create internal divisions or cover walls and counters, taking advantage of the lightness and versatility of this material. This is what our aluminum mesh looks like in retail stores.
  • Interior room dividers: Aluminum meshes are also used to create interior space partitions in offices, stores, restaurants and other commercial locations. Their lightness and versatility make them very easy to install and even easier to maintain. This is what the interior divisions made with aluminum mesh from Codina look like.
  • Aluminum mesh staircases: Our aluminum mesh handrails and stair enclosures are a reliable and resistant option. These grids provide a safe, slip-resistant surface, offering durability and low maintenance. Find out how our aluminum mesh can improve the safety and appearance of your stairs!
  • Furniture and interior wall coverings: The lightness and elegance of this material makes it possible to cover interior walls and furniture elements such as structural cabinets or elevators. See examples.
  • Ceilings: Our aluminum ceilings with Codina Architectural meshes offer a durable solution that is resistant to wear and corrosion, in addition, its lightness makes it ideal for installation on ceilings, they also allow adequate ventilation and they are easy to clean. See our aluminum roofing and flooring.
  • Aluminum Railings: These meshes offer a reliable railing solution, providing durability and strength while being easy to clean and requiring little maintenance. They are an ideal choice for ensuring safety and style in your railing projects. Discover our aluminum railings.
