Barrier Mesh™ is a tough, rigid, heavy-gauge steel mesh installed typically onto stud framing (both metal and wood), with gypsum sheathing applied to its surface to conceal the barrier mesh, thereby providing a significant barrier to security breach across that wall system. ClarkDietrich Building Systems’ Barrier Mesh™ (BM) can also be used without sheathing to provide an enhanced protection of security to walls, ceilings as well as floors. Barrier Mesh™ is produced in different size diamonds and gauges for minimum, medium or maximum security protection.
In addition to providing high-strength and fire-resistant protection, Barrier Mesh™ also offers a cost-effective and time-saving alternative to reinforced concrete or concrete masonry systems. Barrier Mesh™ can be either nailed or screwed to wood framing, tack-welded to metal stud framing or fastened with specially designed Barrier Mesh™ clips, available upon request. ClarkDietrich Building Systems mesh sheets are 4’x 8’ special order mesh sizes available upon requests with additional lead-time.
