Features

Making Art with Match®

Match® grating systems are commonly used as awnings or shading devices, however with Arcadia’s ability to customise our products, designers and architects can incorporate added features through customised blade profiles being incorporated. This can be incorporated as artwork or imagery to enhance public appeal for your project and façade, and added feature can be achieved through using customised blade colours – see Arcadias Colour selection guide. Based on the orientation of the system it is able to vary and change the amount of natural lighting inlet and privacy and screening.

Factors to consider

There are a couple of considerations you will need to keep in mind when integrating the Match® Grating system into your project. Firstly the use and application should be considered. This could include Screening, Privacy, Decorative Feature, or security screening. Secondly you should consider blade profile and sizing. Thirdly, product span should be considered based on the blade profile chosen, location of the project, terrain categories and wind loadings. Fourthly, consideration should be given to Structural requirements based on the above. Arcadia have a team of highly experienced staff that are available to discuss the options available and assist with Match® Grating calculations or assist with engineering a complete solution ready to be incorporated architecturally.

Hybrid Walkways & Sunshades

The Arcadia Match® Grating Panels can be integrated into a building façade to provide solar shading to reduce heat loads and glare, while also providing a maintenance walkway for external maintenance and window cleaning. The Grating system is connected to structural outriggers and based on the selected profile spans up to 2.7m with a service live load of 2.5 KPa. Select from the Match SC or Match GC range for a Trafficable system.
