More about this product

GKD Metal Fabrics' Mediamesh lets you imagine any indoor or outdoor façade – of any size, shape or form – and become a communication canvas of infinite possibilities. Through digital technology and the visual power of of energy-stingy LEDs, everything from branding graphics to video, live broadcast to conceptual art, can be displayed on what clearly has become the “silver screen” of the 21st century – Mediamesh®.

As a non-structural material, Mediamesh® can clad any surface or structure, integrated into new construction or retrofitted. It’s also the only media façade that can be used over windows, allowing those inside to see out, while those outside enjoy the show – day or night.
