In designing modern buildings, architects and designers face with many challenges, one of which is ventilation. Whether it be natural or forced, interior or exterior, vertical or horizontal, each ventilation solution has its own set of criteria.
Our gratings are usually used in areas where ventilation is required in combination with other requirements such as screening, public access, vehicular access, barrier properties or merely aesthetic. Our range of mesh gratings is ideal as it offers free areas up to 92% resulting in fewer or smaller penetrations in the building/landscape. PcP MESH or CUBE gratings can be supplied with a free area of 50-92%. Even maintenance-only areas require ventilation. Such as riser grilles in buildings, which serve as a working platform and provide ventilation in the event of fire. All items can be supplied ready to install with appropriate fixtures, or can be cut on site if preferred, subject to site restrictions and application.
A horizontal grille in the pavement whose primary purpose is air intake into a building in the event of a fire also has to be suitable for the general public, for example women’s footwear i.e. heel-friendly and slip-resistant. These grilles can also be subject to vehicle loads such as emergency service vehicles or mobile elevating working platforms (MEWP) with high point loads.
A horizontal grille in raised planters (bricked plinth) at the perimeter of the building providing 5% natural ventilation to underground car parking. It is therefore not exposed to public or vehicular access, but there may be aesthetic requirements.
A ventilation grille is often visible and may even constitute part of the building front. PcP CUBE® and MESH™ grating options enable you to design ventilation to suit the visual environment.
