The stainless steel mesh EGLA-MONO 4791 was used for the Al Sendian Tower in Qatar to cover the four-storey parking garage of the office building.
With one flat side the weave type EGLA-MONO appears as a uniform metal veil on large surfaces. Because of its homogenous appearance, it is often used. The special feature of the semi-transparent facade cladding of the Al Sendian Tower is the surface treatment of the wire mesh. A continuous oriental pattern was painted on every mesh elements.
With an open area of 60 %, the stainless steel wire mesh EGLA-MONO 4791 provides a natural ventilation of the parking garage. Due to the open area of the mesh, expensive ventilation systems can be avoided - this not only reduces energy costs but also has a positive effect on the environment. In addition, the open area of the wire mesh allows natural lighting of the car park interior.
