|Location:||Washington D.C. and Northern Virginia USA||Commutes between Washington, D.C., and Northern Virginia are famously arduous. Thanks to the new Dulles Corridor Metrorail Silver Line, those routes have gotten significantly easier. The route currently runs to fast-growing areas outside of Washington, D.C., including Tysons Corner, and will eventually provide a direct route from Dulles International Airport to downtown Washington, D.C. Pedestrian bridges featuring more than 60,000-square-feet of Banker Wire woven wire mesh are interspersed throughout the line.
Banker Woven wire mesh was used to fill triangular openings in the pedestrian bridges. The unique configuration of the pieces could have caused an abundance of wasted material. But Banker Wire developed an innovative manufacturing process to prevent waste and keep costs down for its customer. Because Banker Wire carefully controls every detail of its shop, it can customize manufacturing processes to suit the specifics of particular jobs.
Banker Wire provided more than 60,000 square feet of FPZ-16 and FPZ-44 woven wire mesh for the project. Combining two different mesh pattern spacings, these weaves provide the transparency and uninterrupted sight lines characteristic of glass, but with increased durability and lower maintenance. The combination of strength and beauty provided by woven wire mesh makes it perfect for large-scale architectural applications where fall protection is essential, like the Dulles Metrorail.
