|Stainless Steel Wire Mesh Application
Booterstown is a coastal town, situated close to Dun Laoghaire, about 7 km south of Dublin City. Graepels Straight Wire Mesh and Perforated Metal are used throughout Booterstown Dart Station which boasts some stunning views out onto the Harbour.

The architectural application of wire mesh in public spaces such as the Dart Stations, pedestrian bridge are advantageous, because of the high visibility through the mesh. The open area means the clear visibility hinders people from loitering on the bridge thereby increasing security and deterring vandals.
The aesthetic advantages is its ability to maximize the views while fulfilling its functional purpose of creating a durable, secure pedestrian bridge.
Both ends of the bridge the view are framed geometrically by the hexagonal framework of the bridge, while the glass balustrade allows views of the Irish Sea to remain unobstructed.The Wire Mesh Panels were manufactured in 3 mm thick stainless steel 316 quality. The Mesh panels were supplied in sections, each box section was then bolted onto the hexagonal steel frame of the bridge. At one end the panels were folded around a steel frame and welded with staggered tensioning bolts at regular intervals. The other end of the panels were folded for rigidity at the point where the panels joined.
Due to the span of each panel in relation to the thickness of the wire the panels could potentially flex. The solution to this was to create a bolt system, for each box section to secure them onto the hexagonal stainless steel frame. Once the wire mesh panels were bolted into place, the entire frame increased in strength and durability.
The bright annealed wire, creates a Ĺshinyĺ finish which means the wire is self cleaning, however, due to the local climate the panels need maintenance, albeit minimum maintenance, to ensure the wires do not stain.
