Balustrades and fencing

Press-locked gratings for fencing or solid balustrades are manufactured from galvanised steel, with a powder-coated finish if required. They are quick to assemble and offer good resistance. Whether in stadiums, factories, airports or by private individuals, press-locked gratings for fencing are used in a variety of different contexts. They are available as press-welded gratings as well as slanted-strut gratings for added privacy.

Grating panels can be connected by posts made from square or flat tubing sealed directly or with prepierced connectors (on request only).

Please ask us if you have any specific requests.


Finishes available:

  • Powder-coated
  • Galvanized

Custom manufacture

Depending on the layout and dimensions you require, several different meshes and cross-sections can be manufactured. For use as a balustrade, the NF P01-012 (paragraph 2.3.2) standard imposes a maximum horizontal gap in the mesh of 50mm). (Please give details when ordering).



  • The mesh spacing is defined in accordance with the standards and loads that must be respected:
  • For a BB thickness of 2-3 mm:
  • The BB spacing is typically a multiple of 11.11.
  • The IB spacing is typically a multiple of 11.11.
  • For a BB thickness of 4-5 mm:
  • The BB spacing is typically a multiple of 18.
  • The IB spacing is typically a multiple of 17.
  • Other options are available on request.

  • Standard height: 20-150 mm.
  • Standard thickness: 2-8 mm.

GEI press-locked grating is characterized by transverse, cross bars inserted under high pressure into pre-existing notches in the bearing bars. This grating is produced in “flat” or “T”-shaped sections, welded into place and then optionally undergoes hot-dip galvanizing in accordance with the applicable EN ISO 1461 standards. For situations with an increased risk of slipping, anti-slip grating can be produced, where the upper surface of the bearing bars and/or the transverse bars can be given anti-slip serrations. GEI press-locked grating is typically manufactured from EN 10025 standard S235JR steel, which ensures a consistent production quality. RAL-GZ 638 manufacturing tolerances applied.
