OGI Architectural Metal Solutions is a division of Ohio Gratings Inc. This division has been created to expand into the architectural metals market providing aluminum, carbon and stainless steel products for projects requiring architectural applications such as metal sunshades, grilles, fencing, handrail infill, building facades, decorative louvers, fountains, tree grates and ADA walking surfaces.
Custom fabrication and special finishes are available for all our architectural metal product lines. Our architectural metal products are aesthetically appealing, easy to install, lightweight yet strong, field adaptable, require minimal maintenance and are reasonably priced.
ADA walkways can be manufactured from aluminum, carbon and/or stainless steel. These metal products conform to the requirements of The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) allowing wheelchair accessibility and high heel traffic. Ideal for fountains, tree grates or a wide variety of public projects in which traditional walking surfaces are required.
Our architectural metal fencing products are manufactured from both aluminum extrusions and cold-formed carbon steel. With a wide variety of mesh openings, our metal fence systems can meet the highest level of security needs or create a decorative metal screen while being a product for long term durability.
Handrails offer an open, yet secure panel infill. The handrail products are manufactured from both aluminum extrusions and cold-formed carbon steel for extra strength and longevity. With a wide variety of mesh openings, our handrail systems can meet any loading criteria and be attractive at the same time.
Aluminum Egg-Crate grilles are manufactured from both aluminum extrusions and cold-formed carbon steel. With a wide variety of mesh openings, wind, snow and water pass through with ease, substantially reducing wind and snow loading concerns. Metal grilles are ideally suited for exterior applications where security, shading and privacy are paramount while being aesthetically pleasing. The open mesh metal grilles allow for natural ventilation, day lighting and site lines in and out. Aluminum grilles are a "Green" application by reducing interior heat gain and solar glare. In cold environments, the open design of screens will minimize excessive "snow loading" issues.
Our architectural metal sunscreens/sunshades offer up to 100% solar block. These metal sunshades are manufactured from both aluminum extrusions and thin gauge cold-formed carbon steel. With a diverse mix of mesh openings and profiles to choose from, these metal sunscreen/sunshade systems can meet any solar loading criteria while providing an attractive and contemporary system. Blade spacing and profile may be varied to produce a wide array of light levels and shading. Select blade profile, outrigger and fascia designs or integrate custom components.
These systems are ideal for concealment of unpleasant dumpsters or other trash receptacles that may be within eyeshot. The aluminum louver allows for airflow, while providing a visual barrier that is aesthetically appealing. Ideal locations for these can include restaurants, apartment/condominium complexes, retail areas, parks or campgrounds.
LG and ZG Series louver products are manufactured from aluminum extrusions. All louvers and frames are available in various finishes to enhance the overall appearance. Louvers can offer a variety of degrees of visual concealment up to 100%, while allowing a minimum of 63% open air flow. These ornamental louvers are ideal for physical/visual barriers, ventilation grilles and sunshades. All aluminum louvers are resistant to corrosion in both harsh tropical & winter environments. Our new LW Series steel louver has been tested and approved to meet FEMA 361 design criteria for F5 Tornado Shelters.
