Description

Italia-80 is a steel louvred cladding system which combines 80% visual screening with 36% free area for ventilation and anti-climb properties.

The steel construction creates a robust panel suitable for ground and street-front locations as well as roof-top and elevated situations.

Framed panels are manufactured to custom-sizes for a wide variety of applications such as wall cladding, car park screens, compounds, plant housing, ventilation grilles, balconies and balustrades, wheelie bin stores and brise soleil.

The louvre profile is formed from triple flanged 50 x 1.5 mm flat bars which are spaced 9 mm apart and form a continuous linear aesthetic. The louvres are secured by electrofusion to 4 mm diameter vertical round bars.

Panels and ancillary steelwork can be supplied galvanized only or galvanized and powder coated to any RAL colour.

Standard product features

Material:

Electrofused steel S235JR.

Framing:

The panels are framed on two sides with flat bar or angle section, size determined by application.

Orientation:

Panels are generally designed with horizontal louvres and with the louvre blades sloping downwards on the outside of the enclosed area.

Installation:

Panels are fastened with M10 stainless steel bolts grade A2.

Product Options

Product reference:

  • Italia-80 Vertical is designed with vertical louvres. This provides a variable degree of visual screening depending on the angle of view.
  • Panels can be designed with the louvre blades sloping upwards which provides more effective visual screening for roof-top installation when viewed from ground level.

Fixing:

Panels bolted to posts or sub-structure on both sides through flat framing bar or behind louvre at 90 degrees through angled framing bar.

Bird and insect screens:

Panels can be framed with an angle section on all four sides to provide a mounting surface for bird and insect screens or blanking plates.

Finishing:

Polyester powder coating is a multi-stage process which applies thermo-setting resins producing a superior finish to painting.

Other requirements:

- Bespoke designs:

The integrity of the raw material allows it to be cut or shaped to suit non-uniform openings. Vertical louvres can be rolled to a radius.

Secondary steelwork:

Secondary support steelwork is designed and supplied as required.
