March 27, 2018 – Kennesaw, GA – Direct Metals, an international steel service center with locations in Kennesaw, GA and Waukegan, IL, provided product for the I-90 Footbridge in Cleveland, Ohio.

Direct Metals provided 7,541 square feet of custom cut woven intercrimp wire mesh with a u-edging frame for the I-90 footbridge in Cleveland, Ohio earlier this year. The woven intercrimp wire mesh was framed with u-edging and finished with a powder coated black paint. These wire mesh panels both serve as a safety feature and are architecturally unique.
