SHAPES & FORMS

Screen products can be flat, cylindrical or curved. Shapes can be round, straight or oblique, as well as inside out.

FINISH

Different types of finishes are available, depending on the final application and aspect required (pickling-passivation, electro-polishing, sandblasting, powder coating).

FRAMING

Johnson Screens can supply panels or a fully framed structure with all the necessary attachments. Framing increases the construction rigidity, while giving an aesthetic finish. It also makes installation easier.

ENGINEERING CAPABILITIES

Johnson Screens’ combination of skills, experience and advanced technology, is an asset to many architectural firms looking at innovative concepts and designs.

CLEANING & MAINTENANCE

Johnson Screens’ Steel Brite™ cleaner is designed specifically for the cleaning and protection of exposed stainless steel architectural pieces. Outside environmental elements can cause surface staining on stainless steel products. Johnson Screens’ architecture pieces will retain their new appearance and shine by applying the simple to use, environmentally-friendly, two-step process of Steel Brite and Passivator rinse.

Aesthetic & Functional The manufacturing process of Johnson’s screens involves the continuous welding of wires onto support rods of different shapes and sizes in order to obtain a structure that is solid, resistant and aesthetic. Countless combinations are available to architects by varying dimensions, slot size and tilt of rods and wires — creating a freedom in the creative process and approach.

Woven wire is being adopted by more architecture and building industry professionals because of its optical and functional properties: reflectiveness, transparency, opaqueness, flexibility, robustness, permeability to light and air, service life, ease of cleaning, recyclability, and protection against the sun and impact. Johnson Screens’ basis for the innovative strength and quality of its woven wire products comes from decades of experience in manufacturing technical woven wire for filtration and separation. This technical expertise in the industrial sector has also proven its value in the field of architecture. Variable mesh widths, lengths and densities make it possible to achieve an unlimited variety of materials and effects.
