More about this product

Cascade Architectural's Fabricoil architectural coiled wire fabric system was recently incorporated by iPic Entertainment into its newest luxury cinema location that opened on Wilshire Boulevard in the Westwood section of Los Angeles.


The Cascade Architectural stylish coiled wire fabric can be viewed upon entering the new Westwood location for iPic Theaters – as well as other iPic locations. The dramatic effect begins inside the lobby where guests are treated to the chic appearance of the Fabricoil™ system. The suspended coiled wire fabric consists of 19 gauge galvanized steel with 3/16” thickness. The fabric features three different finishes – antique copper, satin bronze, and silver-toned – and is affixed to the ceiling using Cascade Architectural's Sleeve engineered attachment system in a curved orientation.

The iPic cinemas more closely resemble the feeling of stepping into a stylish hotel or lounge versus being inside a traditional movie theater.
Fabricoill™ systems add just the right amount of luster and definition to enhance intimacy in a large, luxurious space. The dramatic, semi-transparent panels descend from 28-foot-high cathedral ceilings and are hung at varying heights. Instead of interior walls, it is Cascade Architectural's antique copper, satin bronze, and silver-toned wire fabric that provides a distinct sense of space while simultaneously filtering air, light and sound.


Fabricoil™ systems consist of architectural coiled wire fabric – interlocking strands of coiled wire formed into a flexible material – and an engineered attachment.

Fabricoil™ systems look and perform like woven metal mesh, but have a far lower installed cost. Fabricoil™ coiled wire fabric is manufactured in a wide variety of metals, gauges, scales, finishes and colors. Metals include but are not limited to aluminum, steel, stainless steel, brass, copper and titanium. Fabricoil™ engineered attachment systems are primarily manufactured from stainless steel, steel and aluminum.

Cascade Architectural provides a wide array of Fabricoil system finish options:

  • Low-VOC metallic lacquer finishes to meet specific application and design requirements
    Designer metallic powder finishes
    Durable acrylic lacquer coatings available in a wide range of custom colors that can be matched to color chips
    Anodized finishes for aluminum products.
