About the Project

Soho XL powder coated expanded metal car park façade at Sainsburys Brentwood. The main façade is designed to appear as a seamless, randomly undulating ribbon of mesh. In reality the mesh panels are carefully designed to avoid any visible panelisation or connection. Curved metal banding seamlessly holds the panels in place.

Two additional flat clad headlight screens covered in similar expanded metal bands are designed to mimic the main façades, and protect nearby housing from intrusive car headlights. The deceptive curvilinear form provides an elegant architectural screen, which economically both enhances and disguises the functional steel frame behind.

Architect: CHQ Architects

About the Project

Gladstone 100/10 architectural cable mesh and Gladstone PC 100/10 pre-crimped mesh installed as façade cladding at The Princesshay Shopping Centre Car Park in Exeter.

The Gladstone cable mesh is installed as an outer layer of façade cladding, over the pre-crimped mesh behind, creating a visual moiré effect. The internal layer of pre-crimped Gladstone mesh provides strong and effective security screening between the concrete car park levels.

Locker wire mesh cladding at University of Leeds MSCP

About the Project

Officially opened in January 2016, Leeds University’s innovative multi-storey car park features Kirkstone perforated metal panels installed as a unique cladding design, with beautiful eye-catching night-time illumination.

Each Kirkstone square panel consists of 2 high points and 2 low points on opposite corners, joined by a central node, generating a 3D relief. Adjacent corners share a node point, as one geometric template panel is rotated repeatedly through 90 degrees to create an undulating surface precisely designed to achieve the free area required for passive natural ventilation. Perforations in the hyperbolic paraboloid panels are therefore both aesthetic and functional.

The Locker team was integral to the success of the project, from start to finish. Our designers worked in partnership with architect Carey Jones (CJCT) to devise the optimum cladding material. All options were considered, including fabric tension mesh, until the final perforated metal panel design was created.

For Wates Group (Shepherd Construction) Locker delivered structural engineering, design, fabrication and installation of the Kirkstone perforated panels, plus a green wall tensioned mesh façade to the lower floors along with all supporting mullions, steelwork and bracketry.

The innovative structure of the car park façade along with the high quality of the end product has resulted in a shortlisting for a RICS award under the ‘Design through Innovation’ category.

About the Project

Gladstone 80/10 installed as car park cladding at Clarence Dock, Leeds. This architectural cable mesh was used to create a visually stunning and fire-resistant surface. The open area of the mesh creates a semi-transparent 'veil' effect which allows air to circulate freely.

Clarence Dock is a shopping and leisure centre in Leeds. It also has a large residential population in waterside apartments, and a significant number of business premises.
