ALLOY Metal Mesh Screens Feature on DrySpell Gardening TV Show
ALLOY’s unique prefabricated stainless steel architectural mesh screens have been featured on popular landscape design show DrySpell Gardening , aired on Foxtel’s Lifestyle Channel on July 30, 2009.
Brendan Moar, landscape architect and host of Dry Spell Gardening, created an eco-sanctuary within a steep suburban garden block for a Melbourne-based artist and her husband. Brendan used his highly regarded, innovative approach to design to take ALLOY’s prefabricated, punched metal sheets and utilise them as unique gabion wall features that ran across the site to help create an exciting, contemporary garden.
ALLOY’s range of pre-fabricated, punched metal mesh sheets have been developed to provide a high quality, fast-turnaround, cost efficient architectural screen solution for interior and exterior use – but, as Brendan has shown, their design use is limited only by the imagination.
Brendan and his team, who specialise in creating eco friendly gardens, used the ALLOY Swiss Cross and Penny 1200mm x 1000mm prefabricated punched metal sheets in 1.6mm thick stainless steel - shaping them to their required specifications for the gabion walls. As an environmentally conscious designer, Brendan was attracted to the contemporary screen styles and materials and that they are a bi-product of the distinctive ALLOY metal tiles – which are punched from one solid sheet of metal - in ALLOY’s bid to minimise waste. Stainless steel is also 100% recyclable and requires a minimum of maintenance.
