Grids for terraces


Terrace grills are panels that are expertly applied by special operators that will fit complements suitable for becoming planters or dividers that are excellent at protecting privacy. The grilles, however, are also very well suited to decorate the balcony in particular when they are fixed under the walls and form special decorative arches. The grids where you want to make flowers climb, they must be applied on the wall or even on the railing and the very narrow meshes of this piece of furniture, ensure not only a perfect hold of the plant but also an ideal privacy. The terrace will become like a kind of garden where you can spend pleasant evenings in the company of friends and above all far from prying eyes.

How to install the grids



When you buy the terrace grills on your own, if you are practical, you can apply them yourself, otherwise you can call a competent person or contact a manufacturer who is in charge of assembly. These companies usually offer direct advice with a visit to your home. They will propose you suitable solutions for your terrace and will show you what the advantages of the various proposed grids will be. Once the visit has been carried out, a technician from the company will take care to show you on the computer, a three-D view that will allow you to observe in three-dimensional form, as your terrace will be when the work is finished. The realization of terrace grills are personalized in the sense that there are different shades of colors that differ from the raw wood for the different shades. Then there are brighter colors that go beyond the tone of natural wood. The wood used for the grills is very sturdy and if wisely fitted, one should not be afraid that the grille may be damaged due to bad weather or too strong currents especially if they are very high floors. The grids are solid and require minimal annual maintenance. The material is waterproof so there is no risk of it being affected by atmospheric agents or insects such as woodworms. Some companies have sunshade grids that give way to shady areas during the sunniest hours of the day.

What to do before mounting the grids



When you buy both grids to be applied to balconies or walls or pergolas or grids of any kind, make sure that the condominium regulations allow these elements to be applied. There are buildings in the historic center of some cities, which need special authorization before they can place grids because they could disturb public decor. Not infrequently, some municipalities forbid the location of sunshades or other components that can somehow disfigure the beauty of a building that is not necessarily historic. You should get a condominium regulation or request an extraordinary meeting. During the meeting you will expose your problem and express the doubts that beset you. At the same time, however, call the technical office of the municipality of your town of residence and ask the clerk for all the information you need. If there are no limitations and restrictions in the condominium regulations, send a letter to the building administrator and notify them of the additional components you are about to place on your terrace. If the technical office of the municipality gives you the possibility of being able to locate the grids, proceed without any hesitation, otherwise you have to desist. Many municipalities prevent not only the location of grids but also of satellite dishes, air conditioners and all that is visible from the outside and which modifies the façade of the building.

DIY grills


For DIY enthusiasts, it is possible to build terrace grills even by yourself. Of course you have to buy the building elements available in the wood-based brico center. You will get vertical and horizontal profiles of the desired size, strips, joint brackets, wood impregnating and screws and bolts for wooden profiles. Begin by applying the impregnant on all the elements so that you do not have to do it when the grill is already assembled. Build the frame trying to create it solid and sturdy then apply the strips perpendicularly forming rhomboid elements by cutting with a hacksaw any excess wood that comes out of the frame. Make sure you get a firm and solid grid and to achieve this, create a second frame that you will apply to the first one. The structure thus, will prove to be more robust. To make dividers, place the grid wherever you want and then nail the feet to the floor. To make dividers, place the grid wherever you want and then nail the feet to the floor. To carry out your work, you can buy fir strips that are very robust but at the same time are the cheapest. Otherwise you can opt for strips of beech, mahogany or oak that are of hard wood. Some DIY centers or specialized stores make available to passionate customers, operators who will give you useful advice on how to build what you intend to do and your skill, will join their very valuable advice. Alternatively, you can buy semi-finished products that will allow you to build the grill without too much effort but only by assembling the pieces. Whether you call the specialist company or do the work yourself, once the work is finished, you will have a warm and comfortable green oasis that will give you the impression of living in a new and innovative environment like that of a restaurant on the outskirts and instead you are alone on the terrace of your home that has turned into a magical place and all yours. Remember that if you use the grill for a double functionality and that is using it both as a divider and as a support for climbing plants, you can even make short flowered corridors that will give the terrace an amazing effect. The grills are very useful not only for climbing flowering pints like geraniums but also if you have a home garden and you can use them to climb those varieties of tomato plants that, besides being tasty vegetables, give a very ornamental effect to the balcony. If you use the grids equipped with a cassette in the base, you will have an advantage and the effect will be optimal.
