Architectural gratings

Steel gratings for architectural applications

Emmegi spa produces several patterns of steel gratings ideal for architectural applications

The neat elegant patterns of these eletrowelded gratings  provide a distinctive feature of  contemporary design. These products can be easily adapted to match a wide range of applications, providing inspiration to architects visions and immagination.  They can be cut 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, parapets, brise-soleil, balustrades, balconies, wall-cladding, enclosures and many others.

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  up to the production optimisation in order to achieve an overall cost reduction.

Basic information for steel fabricators

Gratings up to 3 mm thick flat bar  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 should 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.
