This project was a challenge on a scale the Brass Workshop had never previously seen. We were to produce and install 148 meters of convector grates in a private residence, and we had to prepare the mounting surfaces, too. Our technicians dismantled the steel housing of the preexisting serial convectors, which had been built to take regular mixed-use plastic convertor grates.
We then went back to our factory to produce a brass strip sized 10x17mm, which is not commercially available. It took nearly 700 hours of work to cut that strip. Then the strip was cut into blanks and all parts of the brass convector grates were assembled manually with mechanical connectors. Every grate required tons of screws. The assembly operation put the savoir faire of our construction metal-workers to a test. Even though we had our very best people on the job, a single grate took a full day of work to assemble.
It is a satisfying thought that mundane accessories such as convector grates are now beautiful elements of décor in that palatial private home. We are proud of the job we did in the face of challenge, and we are glad to hear that our convector grates match the laminated parquetry and the marble.
