Characteristics50% open area, high visibility, ventilation, cost-effective, sustainable, easy maintenance
There are no longer limitations to the aesthetics of parking structures or how safe and secure they can be made. GKD Metal Fabrics developed the systems and hardware to incorporate metal fabric facades into a parking structure to create an environment for vehicle security with visual appeal. Because of the material’s transparency, no mechanical ventilation systems are required giving energy and cost savings.
