Banker Wire decorative woven wire mesh is an exciting alternative to other common ornamental iron work materials for grand staircase designs. Marmol Radziner Associates incorporated Banker Wire M13Z-145 Rigid Cable wire mesh into their grand staircase design. The Dorland Company did a fantastic job in fabricating the post and rail.

This project used: Wire Mesh Pattern: M13Z-145. Utilizing wire mesh patterns details like, large scale, three wire, and rigid cable, it is patterned after traditional European designs. Utilizing a long aspect ratio clearly differentiates the vertical pattern from the horizontal whiling maintaining its strength and is available in many different finishes. Stainless steel is often used for both architectural and industrial applications. The vast number of specific types and grades of stainless steels can be manufactured as wire mesh to improve performance in corrosion resistance, formability, and aesthetics. Stainless steel is steel with the addition of chromium. The chromium produces an oxide layer at the surface that is known as the “Passive layer”. This passive layer protects and prevents further corrosion. Other metals such as nickel, molybdenum, titanium, manganese are added throughout the many types of stainless steels.
