Hibernia Tower Parking Garage
Car park cladding with W.S. Tyler Architectural Mesh EGLA-TWIN 4243
The completed car park offers 144 parking spaces for the commercial and residential tenants of the adjacent Hibernia Tower Building in the Central Business District of New Orleans.
The architects from HCI Architecture have used W.S. Tyler Architectural Mesh for the façade cladding of the parking structure. The stainless steel mesh EGLA-TWIN 4243, with an open area of 57%, is characterized by its smooth flat surface on one side, which reflects light homogenously.
The wire mesh façade protects against external weather conditions while offering a high degree of transparency and optimal ventilation of the parking garage. In addition to its transparency, ventilation, and aesthetics, mesh is a favorable choice for parking due to its cost-effective installation and the long lifespan of stainless steel.
The wire mesh elements with a dimension of 12 m height and 2.70 m width were assembled by W.S. Tyler and supplied with the complete fastening technology, consisting of tension profiles, clevis bolts, and pressure springs.
