Wire mesh enlisted for student commons at Maryland’s Towson University
Baltimore-based BWWO Architects, designer of the new West Village Commons, near Towson University, the second-largest university in Maryland, selected 3DZ-151 woven wire mesh from Milwaukee-based manufacturer Banker Wire for the building’s staircase and second-floor atrium safety railings. The open-weave mesh is near opaque when viewed straight on, but becomes translucent when viewed at an angle. This feature provides students sitting on the atrium level with some privacy while also allowing light to easily pass through.
