The Locker Group has provided Chelsea Expanded Metal security screens at Highbury Substation, Seven Sisters, London. The 3D rhomboid form of the expanded metal mesh screening was designed to match the etched-concrete sculptural wall on which it is fixed.
The aim of the screens was to continue the bold theme whilst not stopping light coming through to the adjacent two buildings. Chelsea expanded metal mesh was chosen as it can appear both transparent and opaque simultaneously, depending on the viewer’s perspective.
The Locker-designed framework was powder-coated bronze to complement the vernacular brickwork.
