MMA Architectural Systems supplied and installed Jakob Webnet wire mesh balustrade infill for the outdoor balustrading at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London. Designed to manage and guide the flow of visitors, the balustrading plays a key role in the organisation of pedestrian traffic in the park.
The balustrading infill had to accommodate the multitude of curves that were a feature of the balustrade’s design, and the pliable characteristics of the Webnet wire mesh made it the perfect choice. The system can adapt to most forms and shapes, making it perfect for creating curves. Featuring high translucency, the Jakob Webnet system is also a discreet and elegant choice for balustrading.
The Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park was designed to accommodate large numbers of visitors, so it was important that a safe and durable balustrading solution was chosen. The Jakob Webnet wire mesh balustrade infill went through an exhaustive series of tests to ensure it could cope with the large crowds and fulfil a vital security function.
Created using marine grade 316 stainless steel, Jakob’s Webnet wire mesh infill continues to provide a robust, weather resistant solution, designed to last for years to come.
