At GKD, we are committed to the environment and good stewardship. Our sustainability efforts our evident in that the stainless steel we use contains post-industrial and post-consumer content; our metal fabrics can be re-used; and metal fabric contributes to LEED points under the Energy and Atmosphere, Material and Resources, Indoor Environmental Quality, Innovation and Design and Site Selection categories.
Aesthetics, Quality and Ease of Maintenance
Our metal fabrics and our innovative attachment systems are crafted of non-corroding high-grade AISI Type 316 stainless steel. As a result, every installation is a marriage of the material’s inherent beauty, durability and ease of maintenance. Along with stainless steel, other materials, such as copper, bronze, aluminum are employed independently or in combinations to achieve results of function and aesthetics.
GKD metal fabrics retain their beauty for decades with little maintenance. Many interior projects require only dusting and a light cleaning, while exterior projects may call for a pressure washing program, periodic inspection and minor adjustments over time.
We not only deliver maintenance assistance on several levels, but we also provide complete turn-key solutions for our fully integrated systems. Our work is not complete until our product is delivered and installed.
We offer installation services in the following ways:
• Instruction and Drawings: We offer suggestions, sketches or drawings to allow clients to complete the installation with their own contractor.
• Supervisory Oversight: We provide supervision on a contractual basis to assure the smooth implementation of the installation plan. Troubleshooting is available.
• Supervision and Installation: We take the lead on the product’s complete installation once the substructure is prepared for the metal fabric (mandatory for all Mediamesh projects).
