The Bibliothèque Nationale de France, Tonhalle Düsseldorf or the European Court of Justice in Luxemburg are only a few examples for both freely formed and spectacular ceiling solutions from wire mesh by GKD - Gebr. Kufferath AG. The technical weaving mill has now transferred this expertise to ceiling systems for standard requirements: As a full-scope provider, alongside consulting, holistic planning and tailor-made mesh production, GKD now offers certified ceiling systems, packing, assembly, installation and maintenance from a single source.
Whether insert mounting or clamp mounting, whether DIN grids, EU grids or the imperial grids commonly found in the US – the choice of format and systems allow for all current global standards to be implemented. The systems are made from either stainless steel or aluminium and can be supplied with eight different types of mesh. Lamps, downlights and sprinklers can be integrated without problems. Having progressed from a technical fabric specialist to become a full system provider, GKD not only delivers functional mesh but also takes care of planning as well as prefabrication and provides a fully dimensioned substructure and installation plans. If desired, GKD also installs the systems.
With the Silentmesh acoustic ceiling system, GKD caters to the many diverse requirements of open room planning. Whether in an office or in a concert hall – acoustic comfort and a stress-free sound level are a balancing act between reverberation and speech intelligibility. Silentmesh offers a highly effective sound absorption surface made from B1 Building material class polyester (flame resistant). The ceiling systems’ extraordinary aesthetics do not only impress in high-profile large projects, but also represent an attractive alternative for building redevelopment and renovation projects. Through the interaction with light, the wire mesh makes any ceiling a visual experience.
