Fabricoil® is manufactured in the USA from a wide range of metal wire materials and gauges.

Material and gauge impacts weight, functionality, aesthetics, suitability for exterior applications, and more. Wire material and gauge are selected based on the needs of your Fabricoil® application. Your Cascade Architectural representative will assist you in making the best selection for your project.

Aluminum

Aluminum 5056 – H18 Wire is an ideal material for our weaving process. Its ease of formability, high resistance to corrosion, excellent strength-to-weight ratio and its natural aesthetic qualities make aluminum wire the obvious choice for most applications. Our Aluminum Wire is very ductile-aiding to the weaving process, making it relatively cheap to manufacture. Being non-ferrous, the material does not discolor or deteriorate in most climates. Weighing almost 1/3-1/2 that of steel, Aluminum weaves can cover more area while adding minimal mass to its supports, again decreasing the overall cost. In its bare state, Aluminum Wire is light silver in appearance but can be coated any custom color. Additionally, our Aluminum wire can be polished to be more lustrous, called Brightened Aluminum. Aluminum is available in a wide variety of wire gauges.

Copper Clad Steel

Copper Clad Steel Wire is our mild steel wire with pure copper plating bonded to the wire’s surface. The Copper Clad Wire exhibits a brilliant red polished finish when first plated. However, if left bare and untreated the wire’s appearance will slowly change to brownish hues and ultimately a grey/green patina. By applying a thin layer of clear lacquer, the bright salmon color can be maintained if desired. Our Copper Clad wire conforms to ASTM standards and has both interior and exterior applications. Copper Clad Steel is available in a wide variety of wire gauges.

Duplex 2205

Duplex 2205 Wire is a two-phase, ferritic, austenitic 22% chromium, 3% molybdenum, 5 to 6% nickel alloyed stainless steel. It is the most widely used duplex stainless steel grade and is characterized by high yield strength, double that of the standard austenitic stainless steel grades. It also demonstrates good fatigue strength, as well as outstanding resistance to stress corrosion cracking, crevice, pitting, erosion, and general corrosion in severe environments. It is a slightly magnetic, highly corrosive-resistant material with an extremely lustrous metallic finish. Its consistent wire surface quality, high strength and great corrosion resistance make it attractive for many applications. Duplex 2205 conforms to ASTM standards and is available in a wide variety of wire gauges.

Silver Tin-Plated Steel

Silver Tin-Plated Steel Wire is our standard mild steel wire with a shiny, brilliant silver tin-plated surface. The tin coating is Grade A and conforms to ASTM standards. Its relatively low cost and attractive finish make it a great choice for interior draperies and the like. Silver Tin-Plated Steel is available in a wide variety of wire gauges.

Stainless Steel Type 304

Stainless Steel Type 304 Wire is the most widely used variety stainless steel. It is a slightly magnetic, highly corrosive-resistant material. Its consistent wire surface quality, relatively high strength and great corrosion resistance make it attractive for many applications. In its bare state, Type 304 has a lustrous metallic finish. Stainless Steel Type 304 conforms to ASTM standards and is available in a wide variety of wire gauges.

Stainless Steel Type 316

Stainless Steel Type 316 exhibits very high levels of corrosion resistance when compared to most other stainless-steel types. It has a slightly higher strength than Type 304 and can handle higher temperatures. In most cases, Type 316 is used for all exterior applications where relatively high strengths and high resistance to oxidation or eroding is required. In its bare state, Type 316 has a lustrous metallic finish. Stainless Steel Type 316 conforms to ASTM standards and is available in a wide variety of wire gauges.

Steel

Brite Basic Steel Wire is a low-carbon, mild steel wire with a semi-bright finish. Its relatively high strength, durability and low cost make it a great choice for a wide variety of applications. Our Brite Basic Wire conforms to ASTM standards and can be coated almost any custom color. Brite Basic Steel is available in a wide variety of wire gauges.
