alphamesh safety systems sweeps up innovation awards at R+T


From 21 to 25 February 2021, the R+T World’s Leading Trade Fair for Roller Shutters, Doors and Sun Protection was held digitally for the first time because of Corona. With 22,000 visitors from 110 countries, it was also a complete success virtually. proMesh GmbH also presented itself for the first time at R+T with alphamesh safety systems.

Flexible safety system for almost any solution

The protective device consisting of a fine, seamless ring mesh is a creative alternative to roller grilles and was specially designed for shop fitting. It also offers a wide range of possible applications within the framework of building security concepts for shopping centres, trade fairs, stadiums, or airports. This day and night closure system dispenses floor or guide rails and is therefore easy to clean and 100 accessible. In addition to the electromagnetic closure system and the almost silent electric drive unit, the shape flexibility of the metal mesh allows customised solutions in almost any shape.

Presentation of the Silver and Gold Awards

Particularly because of the wide range of possible applications and the flexible, architectural design possibilities of the alphamesh safety system, there was great interest and enthusiasm among the trade public. This was ultimately crowned by the presentation of two awards: the Silver Award in the “Doors” category and the Special Gold Award in the “Design” category. The innovativeness of the alphamesh safety system was also emphasised by Dr Claus Schwenzer, Chair of the BVT Verband Tore and Managing Director of Effertz Tore GmbH during the award ceremony: “This is an innovative safety night closure made of a stainless steel ring mesh. That truly won us over”. And when asked what exactly he thought the innovation was, his answer was: “If I am completely honest – regardless of the ring mesh – such a product does not exist in any other material. This is completely new with all the design possibilities. If it were simply hanging straight, which is possible, you could, of course, use a roller grille or roller shutter. But there are many new possibilities here, and I don’t know of any other product – at least now – that can do that”.

These awards confirm the confidence of proMesh GmbH in the quality and uniqueness of its alphamesh safety system. ProMesh would therefore like to thank everyone who made this digital trade fair possible, especially the many visitors for their interest in the alphamesh products.
