Fullness Options for Exterior Metal Mesh Drapery Applications

Fabricoil® can create a billowing drapery effect by using more material than what is required to cover a given area. This effect is called "fullness" and is expressed as a percentage of additional material. Acceptable range for fullness is 15-200%.







Fabricoil Coiled Wire Fabric Materials, Colors & Finishes for Exterior Applications

Presentation is Paramount. Durable custom finishes for every component of your Fabricoil® system.

To deliver your design vision, Cascade Architectural offers high-performance protective coatings for Fabricoil® and its attachment systems to achieve your project’s functional and aesthetic requirements. Coatings are provided in a wide range of colors and finishes including custom colors using your manufacturers paint codes or to match standard RAL finishes. For maximum durability, all exterior Fabricoil® Systems are Powder Coated unless natural finishes are desired. Cascade has conducted extensive successful salt-spray testing to ASTM G85 annex A5 test standards to 4,000 hours of exposure. Stainless Steel and Copper-Clad Steel can be left in its natural form. Left unfinished, Copper-Clad Steel will slowly change to brownish hues and ultimately a bronze/grey/green patina. Our team of experienced product specialists are ready to assist you in selecting the appropriate type of protective coating to bring your vision to life.

Fabricoil weaves come equipped with high-performance protective coatings or may be left untouched for a natural metal finish, no powder coating necessary. Below are a list of raw materials used to create Fabricoil® weaves and a guide to their finishes.


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 metallurgically bonded to the low carbon steel wire’s surface. The Copper-Clad Wire exhibits a brilliant red polished finish when extruded in the continuous solid-cladding process. However, if left bare and untreated the wire’s appearance will slowly change to brownish hues and ultimately a grey/green patina. Additionally, left in its natural form Copper-Clad Steel Fabricoil® is naturally antimicrobial resulting in increased public health safety but also increased durability and beautiful aesthetics. By applying a thin layer of clear automotive 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.

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.

Fabricoil Weave Sizes

All Fabricoil® weaves share the same fundamental geometry, created by interlocking individual strands of spiraled wire. What varies widely is Fabricoil’s scale. The weave you select impacts the material’s percentage of open area (from 40% to 85%), textured appearance, thickness (from 3/32” to 1/2”), wire gauge (from 14 to 21), and ultimate strength. Your knowledgeable Cascade Architectural representative is ready to help you select the perfect weave for your application.

Engineered Attachment Systems for Exterior Architectural Mesh Applications

Fabricoil coiled wire fabric is one of the only truly architectural-grade woven wire mesh materials available today, but no system is complete without the mounting solution for attaching mesh panels to the structure.

Backed by nearly 40 years of experience designing and manufacturing custom architectural solutions for the world's leading architects and designers, Cascade Architectural offers unparalleled design freedom and flexibility through not just our near limitless mesh material attributes, but our extremely versatile range of pre-engineered attachment system hardware.

These systems were developed by Cascade's experienced engineering team to satisfy the most common application methods and project types, and are designed to greatly minimize the amount of engineering time required by our customers to design and build a completely custom ventilated facade system, exterior solar shading or screening solution, or many other custom exterior applications.

Moreover, every project carries the benefit of Cascade's in-house design and technical assistance services; and our custom engineering capabilities can accommodate even the most visionary designs or ambitious performance criteria. Whether you're designing a system from the ground-up, trying to identify the optimal combination of Fabricoil material specifications and attachment hardware best-suited for your application, or simply researching and comparing your options, coordination with our team throughout the life of your project will help ensure that you're maximizing the functional value of your concepts while meeting design, performance, and budgetary requirements every step of the way.

Don't hesitate to leverage our experience now by giving us a call. One of our architectural representatives will happily guide your through the system options today.
