Building facades that add glamour and protection

Locker Group products are often used in facade applications to visually differentiate the exterior of a building. Generally installed within close proximity to the building’s wall or roof, the mesh can also be installed at distance, to provide a sunlit walkway around the perimeter. Facade systems are frequently combined with custom lighting for dramatic effect. Locker Group materials are not confined to facades; they are also used for sunscreens, balustrades as well as interior applications.

The facade is the face of a building, often demonstrating the use and value of the structure. This building facade (Tabcorp Park, Melton) marks the transition between outside and inside. The facade gives a scale to the entire space around it, and provides sunscreen properties to improve privacy without blocking light. Tabcorp chose a custom designed pattern to give the facade a truly unique appearance.

Locker Group has a large range of architectural solutions in expanded, perforated metal and wire to suit your application, speak to your Locker Group consultant to determine which structure best defines your application.


Locker is a manufacturer and supplier of expanded and perforated metal, wire mesh, conveyor belts, screening, architectural infill and facades.
