Architectural gratings

Steel gratings for architectural applications

Emmegi produces several patterns of steel gratings utilised as fences or panels for architectural applications

The neat elegant patterns of these eletrowelded gratings  provide a distinctive feature of  contemporary design. These products are easily fabricated to match a wide range of miscellaneous steel applications, providing inspiration to architects visions and immagination.  They can be cut to size in straight, digonal or circular lines and be framed with steel bars to transform them in solid panels. EMMEGI spa manufacture several electrowelded grating patterns which are ideal for fencing or architectural applications such as parapets, brise-soleil, balustrades, balconies, wall-cladding, enclosures and many others.

This pattern of contemporary design, rectangular or squaredd,  provides a superior level of strength and it is an ideal solution as infill panel for many applications including balconies and parapets

Vesatile grating panels

to suit any architectural requirement

EMMEGI Grating inclouding louvered FRANGITALIA is produced in large mats of approx. 6 mt lenghts.

Mats can be cut to size and framed to create architectural panels with various functional or aesthetic purposes such as parapets, brise-soleil, balustrades, wall-cladding, enclosures and many others. For such applications EMMEGI Design Department can advise the optimal steel grating and panel sizes and provide assistance at any stage of the project up to final executive drawings.

EMMEGI can supply raw self-coulored mats for third party fabrication or the talored finish panels ready for installation.

Basic information for steel fabricators

Grating with 3 mm thick flat bar and up to 25 mm width can be easily cut with a hand tool. It is suggested to weld a flat bar on the mat in 2-3 points to provide a guide line when cutting (the weld should be superficial and in 2-3 spots, to be easily removed after the cutting has been performed).

Heavier gratings shall be cut by flame or appropriate cutting machines. To frame the panels, a flat bar of the same thickness or of the bearing bar, or higher, should be used.

Flat bars should be welded to the frame bar at every  connection at least on one end of the panel. Heavier welding should be performed on the four corners of the panel to ensure maximum rigidity. If a circular frame is required, a 3mm flat bar is appropriate.

In order to avoid unpleasant panel bents, it is raccomanded
to weld the frames with the panel standing on a working desk an not on stands. Holes for the bolts can be drilled directly in the framing bar or, differently, the framing bar can be slotted or holed separetely and then welded to the grating. Framing bars can be longer than the panel and bent and holed at the tip to provide an anchoring support.

It is reccomanded that holes have a diameter of at least 2-4 mm larger than the bolt and is probably good to remind that, if the support structure of the panels has a slot, then the panel should have a hole and vice-versa.

Technical Department team has many years of experience in the management of important and complex projects. EMMEGI spa offers a comprehensive technical  service, from the selection of the most appropriate product and the static calculation of the grating according to the loads, up to the production optimisation in order to achieve an overall cost reduction. Customised design are transferred in real time to the production lines via the CAM system.
