The Material – Coiled Architectural Metal Wire Mesh

Fabricoil® begins with a base metal wire available in varieties of steel, aluminum, brass, copper, or stainless steel. Wire metal mesh material and gauge impact weight, functionality, and aesthetics – so Cascade will help you select the best material and gauge based on your architectural project requirements.

Fabricoil® looks and performs like traditional woven metal wire mesh but is far more affordable. This affordability lets architects and designers flex their creativity, creating signature interiors and exteriors, and turning architectural projects with even very modest budgets into something special.


With translucency that delivers a simultaneously open and closed feel, Fabricoil® fulfills a variety of performance functions like energy efficiency, solar control, partitioning, security, blast protection, and so much more. The metal wire mesh fabric is available in unlimited widths and up to 40 feet in length, and can even be spliced together at the installation site. Cascade’s high-quality architectural metal wire mesh options are available in durable powder coatings, low-VOC lacquer finishes, and custom colors.

Compared to traditional woven metal wire mesh, Fabricoil® gives you far greater design flexibility to meet your specific architectural vision, functional requirements, and budget. Let Cascade help you choose the material, gauge, weave, fullness, finish, and engineered attachment system to achieve your design.

How Metal Wire Coils Are Made

Fabricoil® is manufactured by interlocking metal wire coils via a simple corkscrew method; weaving the spirals together to create a flexible metal wire fabric panel. Beginning with your choice of material, our team of highly skilled craftsmen coupled with inventive machinery, forms the wire into a spiral of a specified weave size. Fabricoil® panel length is determined by the height of the opening at the installation site. Panel edges are hand crimped and the finished Fabricoil® panel is secured to the attachment system of your choice.

Guardian Grade Fabricoil®

Regardless of material and gauge of material it’s woven from, all Fabricoil® is remarkably strong and durable for virtually any application. However, to ensure required performance, Cascade Pre-engineered Security Gates & Screens and Certified Blast and Projectile Protection Systems require the use of Guardian Grade Fabricoil®, which is Fabricoil® made of specific material of a minimum gauge.


Cascade Architectural is committed to manufacturing coiled metal wire fabrics for architects and designers that offer significant building performance and environmental benefits.

Fabricoil’s proven energy performance through independent testing shows up to 5.7% energy consumption savings for interior applications and 21.3% for exteriors. It is effective for retrofitting buildings that lack high-performance glazing. Both internal and external applications significantly increase occupant comfort by mitigating sunlight, reducing glare, and controlling interior temperatures.

Fabricoil® is an environmentally responsible material that is Living Building Challenge Red List Free, 100% recyclable, and no toxic chemicals are used in the manufacturing process. It creates a low carbon footprint by using domestically sourced materials that are durable and easy to maintain. Additionally, our wire is sourced from manufacturers who use a high percentage of recycled content, some as high as 90% scrap base.
