Copper Meshes

At Codina Architectural, we work mainly with four metals, each with different treatments and finishes. On this page we will see the main characteristics of the copper meshes that we offer; We will see its properties, the available treatments, the different uses that we can give it and the most popular copper meshes in this house. The other metals we work with are stainless steel, brass and aluminum.


Copper properties


Some of the main properties of copper are:

  • Thermal and Electrical Conductivity: Copper is known to be one of the best thermal and electrical conductors among metals. It is used in a wide range of applications, from electrical cables and piping systems to electronic components and refrigeration equipment.
  • Corrosion Resistance: Copper is highly resistant to corrosion, making it ideal for applications in corrosive or humid environments. This property makes it especially suitable for the marine industry and for plumbing and plumbing systems.
  • Malleability and Ductility: Copper is highly malleable and ductile, which means it can be easily shaped and manipulated into different shapes and sizes, making it ideal for manufacturing and construction applications.
  • Antimicrobial Properties: Copper has natural antimicrobial properties, making it effective in inhibiting the growth of bacteria and other microorganisms. This makes it a preferred choice for applications in hospitals, kitchens, and potable water systems.
  • Aesthetic Appearance: Copper has an attractive reddish color that can provide an aesthetic and distinctive appearance to the applications in which it is used, such as architecture and decoration.

If we compare it with stainless steel or aluminum, we are dealing with a much more conductive metal while aluminum is a lighter metal and steel is more resistant to corrosion. This can be an advantage or a disadvantage depending on the project requirements and will help to choose the most appropriate metal in each case. Here you can see a comparison of our 4 metals.

Woven copper mesh is a form of wire mesh that is made from copper strands woven together to form a mesh structure. These meshes are used in a wide variety of applications due to the unique properties of copper, including its excellent electrical and thermal conductivity, high corrosion resistance, antimicrobial ability, and attractive appearance.

The advantages of using copper mesh in architectural projects include its durability and resistance to corrosion, which makes it suitable for corrosive or humid environments. In addition, copper has natural antimicrobial properties, which makes it an ideal choice for applications in environments that seek to inhibit the growth of bacteria and other microorganisms, such as hospitals or public spaces. In addition, copper mesh offers a unique and distinctive aesthetic appearance, which can enhance the visual appearance of an architectural project, providing a modern and sophisticated look.

Treatments and finishes of copper meshes

Regarding treatments and finishes, copper mesh can be subjected to various processes to obtain different appearances and characteristics. Some possible treatments and finishes for copper mesh include:

  • Natural treatment: In this treatment, the metal is left bare or uncoated. Over time, the mesh will oxidize and turn a dark green color (known as a patina) due to the reaction of the copper with air and moisture. This natural treatment may be suitable for applications where a rustic, natural appearance is desired, but may also be less resistant to corrosion and wear.
  • Lacquered treatment: In this treatment, the wire mesh is covered with a layer of transparent lacquer to protect it from oxidation and corrosion. The lacquer coating can also improve the durability and scratch resistance of the mesh. This treatment is suitable for applications where a bright appearance and corrosion protection is desired.
  • Textured treatment: In this treatment, the metallic fabric is subjected to a texturing process that creates a surface with a three-dimensional pattern. This treatment can improve the tensile strength and grip of the mesh, making it more suitable for applications such as insect screens, air filters, and privacy screens. The textured treatment can also enhance the appearance of your skin, making it more visually interesting.

Applications of copper mesh in architecture

Copper mesh is a versatile and aesthetic option for use in architecture, and is used in a variety of applications in architectural projects. Some of the main applications and uses of copper mesh in architecture include:

  • Cladding and facades: Copper mesh is used as cladding and facades on buildings to provide an aesthetic and distinctive appearance. Copper mesh can be used in the form of panels or as decorative elements on the façade, creating an attractive and modern visual effect.
  • Sun protection: Copper mesh is also used for sun protection in architectural projects. They can be installed as solar screens on windows or facades, allowing the passage of natural light while protecting from excess solar radiation and helping to reduce energy consumption in the interior of the buildings. This is ideal in car parks and stadiums.
  • Enclosures and railings: Copper mesh is used in the construction of enclosures and railings, offering a combination of safety, aesthetics and durability. They can be used on balconies, terraces and stairs, providing an aesthetic and elegant look while meeting functional needs.
  • Decorative elements: Copper mesh can also be used as decorative elements in architectural projects, adding a touch of style and originality. They can be used as decorative displays, shop windows, ceiling or wall coverings, and other interior and exterior decorative elements
