PP-PRODUCT PRESENTATION
The Grigliato fence system utilizes the strength and flexibility of the Grigliato panels from Metalco .
The Grigliato System enables us to offer an affordable modular system, which is practical, durable and sturdy. This unique railing system provides a wide variety of design solutions. It can be brightly colored and configured to be a design feature or it can blend inconspicuously with the surroundings.
The Grigliato panels are ideally suited for retrofitting existing railing systems, which are not in compliance with current building codes.
Grigliato is an electro-forged welded steel panel. The panels are hot-dip galvanized according to ASTM A 123. Also available as an option is our extremely durable polyester powder finish.

Fencing System
Fence posts are of sufficient length to allow for setting into concrete footers. Posts with flanges (base plate) are also available. The recommended standard fence post spacing is 78" (2OOOmm) apart; however, drawings will call out special spacing when required. In-ground posts may be set in concrete into a hole 12" (303mm) in diameter for terminal posts and 10" (254mm) in diameter for intermediate posts. Concrete should be 6" (152mm) deeper than posts. Deeper and wider settings may be necessary in some locations. It is recommended that the fence be temporarily erected using 2"x 4" supports. After the fence is plumb and level, pour concrete grouting into holes. Installation of some railing systems and customized products may vary.

Post Types and Heights
The standard post is made of rectangular tube 2-3/16" x 1-5/8". The posts have threaded 3/8" inserts to receive 3/8" bolts. The panels are bolted to the posts. Spacers provide spacing adjustments. Standard Heights available are 4', 5', 6', 8'. Extended heights are available by using our rectangular 3' x 1-5/8" posts. Extended heights are 10', 12', 16'. Fence heights exceeding 6' or 8' will utilize a stacked panel arrangements to keep the panel sizes manageable.
Optional available for heights for up to 6' are flat bar posts 2-1/2" x 1/2". These posts have attachment holes to receive fasteners. Posts are attached by utilizing 3/8" threaded hexhead bolts and nuts.

Curved Panels
All Grigliato panels are available in a curved design. The minimum radius that can be rolled is 9". The radius would be perpendicular to the steel bar.

AI-ASSEMBLY, INSTALLATION
Posts can be attached to the structure below in several ways: Using the recessed method, posts are set into cored holes or sleeves and anchored with non-shrink grout.
Using the surface mount method, mounting plates attached to each post are expansion bolted to the structure below.
In the face mount method, the railing posts are mounted to the face of the structure typically below the level of the walking surface.

MF-MATERIALS, FINISHES
Hot dip galvanized only  and/or Thermosetting Polyester Powder Finish
Metalco Fence and railing panels are protected by what we believe is the best finish available today. The computer controlled hot-dip galvanizing and the thermosetting polyester powder finish give the Metalco System the highest possible protection against rust and corrosion.The advanced polyester powder coating technology is environmentally friendly (no solvents, lead free) and offers a large color selection.
[For applications in tropical climates and coastal areas (within 20 miles of large bodies of sea (salt) water) please specify: Thermosetting powder type PLASCOAT PPA571 applied onto zinc phosphate treated steel)

Colors
Eight standard colors are available: white, black, blue, green, red, yellow, gray and brown. Additionally, we offer an almost unlimited selection of custom colors. The polyester powder coating is available for all our products including oversized parts, i.e. large gates.

20-Year Limited Warranty
Metalco fencing systems are free from defects in material and workmanship.
Due to do the nature of hot-dip galvanizing, the galvanized coating and powder coat can leave impurities on the treated surface, i.e., flashing, drips, drops, unevenness, roughness, pinholes etc. These do not impair the coating in terms of corrosion resistance and have no impact on the warranty. If a perfectly smooth surface is desired, non-galvanized powder coated only finish shall be specified. Do NOT specify hot dip galvanizing in coastal areas or tropical climates. We define coastal areas within 20 miles from large bodies of sea (salt) water.
The polyester coated galvanized metal is guaranteed not to rust. Accidental damages, defects resulting from improper installation and damage from vandalism or abuse are not included. Fence & Railing materials installed within 0 to 1 miles from salt water coast line 1 year; Fence & Railing materials installed within 1 to 5 miles from salt water coast line 3 years; Fence & Railing materials installed within 1 to 10 miles from salt water coast line 5 years; Fence & Railing materials installed over 20 miles from salt water coast line 20 years  Warranty is limited to a prorated value of the coating, not to exceed the original value of the coating.
