Why Use Steel Gratings for Walls and Partitions. 

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.

Visual Appeal

Gratings are very appealing and can fit in with any theme – modern, rustic, chic or glam. Steel grates can be used either purely for a decorative intent or to add to the features of the building. They can be used together with wood, stone and metal to create unique custom partitions and all units.

 

Gratings can be purchased at stores that deal with metal and steel products like grates, gratings, and rails. They can also be purchased at lower costs and custom made to your requirements from manufacturer outlets.

Scaffolding – A Permanent Alternative?

Scaffolding – A Permanent Alternative?

Scaffolding has many, many uses and is used to satisfy many needs. They are used in varying processes from construction to advertising, as a temporary solution. Apart from its temporary uses in these many sectors, scaffolds can be used in building and supporting various kinds of stable and permanent structures. These structures can include furnished workshops to buildings and offices that are fully functional. Moreover, scaffolds can also be used to construct platforms, pathways, and bridges for events, access and even in industries. Stairways, bridges, outdoor flooring, indoor decor and access paths for building maintenance are just a few examples. Here are a few permanent and semi-permanent uses of scaffolds, and why they are a better choice.

Permanent Building Solutions:

Staircase and stairways:

Scaffolds can be used to construct a stable and secure complex frame to support single and multistory staircases. These staircases can be installed for permanent (or long-term) use, with stability in bearing heavy loads and constant use. These stairs can either be single row staircases or multiple row staircases that lead to several levels. Scaffolds can also be used to build outdoor staircases to other points of entry, to provide a long-term entry solution.

 

Exterior Access – Maintenance:

The use of scaffolding in maintenance has been around for ages together. They have been (and still are) used to clean the exterior of windows and huge glass panels in huge buildings. The most common use in maintenance is with suspended scaffolding. These are service platforms that are suspended from a frame installed on the roof of a building. Being supported by cables that can bear heavy loads, these platforms can be controlled to move vertically to access building exteriors with ease. Apart from the suspended type, outdoor platforms can be installed using scaffolds to access building exteriors that are not that many levels high.

Industrial walkways:

Most industries look for flooring solutions that are affordable, require less maintenance, and can be used for a long term. Like Mezzanine floors, scaffolds offer a more reliable and stable structure, ideal for outdoor use. These floors can be fitted with steel, stainless steel or alloy platforms to improve their resistance to corrosion and strength. Being highly secure when perfectly installed, these structures can bear heavy weights, making the ideal for industrial use.

Bridges and pathways:

With proven stability and reliability in proving a strong secure platform, scaffolds make an ideal frame for bridges and paths. Based on the material used, these scaffold structures can be used in various conditions from indoor paths to outdoor bridges. There have been many cases where scaffold frame bridges have been used for events of varying scales as a successful means of access. This only further promotes its use as a long-term solution to meeting the access needs of facilities that require bridges or access platforms that need to be elevated.

Interior Décor and Support:

Innovation in Interior décor has brought about the use of unusual components like scaffolds in enhancing the appeal of interiors. This includes the use of materials like steel gratings and scaffoldings among other products.

Scaffolds can be used to provide structural aid, while being used to suspend and mount decorative items. They can be used to mount paintings, suspend lamps and vases, and to install creative shelves and storage.

Moreover, scaffolds and scaffolding are favored for use in several other facilities, such as studios, labs, and media houses. Visit our website to view our range of products, get more details about our products or to get in touch ith us. Oasis Metal Manufacturing LLC.
