GKD Metal Fabrics

A wide variety of architectural and design meshes.

GKD meshes create efficient systems, equipment and components that integrate perfectly across all industry sectors.

For over 20 years, GKD's technologically leading solutions have inspired architects to create pioneering structures all over the world. We have systematically enhanced the visual versatility and functionality of our meshes.

Innovative material combinations and holistic system solutions are the key to design freedom and planning reliability. What‘s more, with the development of transparent media facades, we have added a new chapter to the international success story of our architectural and design meshes. Numerous prestigious awards vouch for the design, degree of innovation and cost-effectiveness of these architecturally integrated systems.

GKD Australia - We Give Shape to Ideas

Use our wealth of expertise. We support architects and planners from your initial ideas right through to installation and the finished project.

Through complex, seemingly contradictory impressions and properties, our architectural metallic meshes open up a new world of design time and again in the interplay between aesthetics and function, lightness and robustness, transparency and reflection, screening and view, daylight and sun protection, climate control membrane and weather protection, low maintenance and durability, intrinsic effect and media display or elegance and acoustics.

  • Building facades are transformed into shimmering building shells becoming a sun protection system with improved energy balance or semi-transparent wind and rain filters.
  • Sound-absorbing ceiling systems improve room acoustics.
  • Semi-transparent room dividers, structural areas and media facade systems project colour transitions or high-resolution content onto facades day and night.

GKD meshes optimise the environmental performance of buildings and are thereby gaining in importance for the future of building and Green Building certification. In public buildings, commerce and property construction, they lend design ideas and green building certification an unmistakable face.

Alongside custom manufacturing, GKD offers system components that comply with quality standards. Since the beginning of the 1990’s GKD has become a growing force in internationally outstanding architectural projects. Designers benefit from the company as a creative source of inspiration and a technical innovator.
