Why Use Steel Gratings for Walls and Partitions. 

Interior and Exterior décor has taken a huge turn over the last decade, integrating a wide range of resources in their designs. This includes the use of rustic and recycled items found in industrial and antique settings, in designs that are both modern, minimal and appealing. Today, landscape and building architects integrate materials like steel gratings, wood, and metal features into their designs, for their work to stand out from the norm. These designs are planned to sate both visual appeal, as well as to offer a functional advantage.

While gratings are almost always linked with industries, workshops and public places, they are also ideal when used as walls, partitions, and floors in homes. In this post, we’re going to look at a few reasons why using steel gratings for walls and partitions are a good idea. Below are a few reasons as to why gratings are ideal for use as walls and partitions.

Reasons Why Steel Gratings Make Ideal Walls & Partitions:

Durable

Steel Gratings are made to endure constant use under intense conditions with little or no damage. They are designed for industrial use, to withstand most threats that cause damage like wear, heavy loads, and factors that cause steel to corrode. Gratings made with stainless steel are strong and resilient against chemicals, rust, the weather and other corroding agents. 

 

Being highly durable, when fixed or used as walls and partitions, these items are sure to last for a long time. This, by itself, is a good enough factor for most people.

Low Cost

Most people are open to unusual ways to cut costs during construction. Gratings cost less than the cost of aggregates (cement, bricks, etc.) it takes to build a wall to fill the same space. Apart from lower costs while constructing, gratings have little maintenance needs, which results in lower maintenance costs in the long run. With lower immediate and long term costs, steel gratings are sure to make your wallet happy.

 

Easy to Maintain

Steel gratings are not that easily worn or damaged and require little or no maintenance. Unlike walls, they do not ‘require’ timely repairs and painting, but can be painted to enhance its features and appeal. A quick wipe, wash and spray and these gratings are as good as new again. When used as exterior walls, they are usually installed as an outer layer to protect glass walls, windows and slider doors.

 

Ventilation

Since gratings are made up of a network of metal bars and rods, they provide high ventilation with ample privacy. Since privacy is always an issue, for most people, even though gratings provide enough privacy, fittings like curtains and blinds can also be used.

 

Versatile

Steel gratings are highly versatile in their use. They can be used as partitions, gates or walls, or even as a surface for plants to grow on. The possibilities when it comes to using gratings as and in walls are endless. Here are a few ways that you can use gratings at home,

  • They can be used to build a moat bridge, which can be lifted to form a part of the wall or a door.
  • They can be used to build both permanent and temporary partitions.
  • They can also be used as guard rails and hand rails along stairs and raised platforms, as well as to partition staircases.
  • They can be used to build border walls, attached to support posts or even be turned into slider doors.

 

Be it indoors or out, steel gratings have a high potential to be used in any design.
