C. Aiano & Sons – leading the way in wire mesh guard manufacture since 1860

BULKHEAD GUARDS & FAN GUARDS

Aiano’s distinctive bulkhead guards & fan guards are manufactured in Britain from steel weld mesh on a round bar frame with welded lugs. The guards are powder coated white for indoor use, or galvanised for outdoor use.

AIANO wire mesh bulkhead guards & fan guards are the result of decades of experience and a constant effort to keep our manufacturing processes at the forefront of innovation. Our bulkhead guards have evolved over time, and our product designs continue to be enhanced in the light of experience. Unlike most other products on the market AIANO guards have a strong round bar frame.

How to choose your bulkhead guard and fan guard

Aiano’s manufactures a wide selection of bulkhead guards and fan guards that fit many popular products on the market. However, before placing an order for our standard guards be sure to check that you have the correct guard size.

It is important to have some distance between the bulkhead and the guard – we call this clearance. The strength of wire mesh comes from its ability to absorb impact. If the guard is too close to the fitting there is a risk of the mesh ‘giving’ and damaging the light fitting it is designed to protect. Therefore selecting the correct guard size is of paramount importance.

When we calculate the size of your bulkhead guard we will usually add the following clearance::

  • width – 100mm
  • height – 100mm
  • depth from the wall – 50mm  (75 mm for fan guards made from 25 x 25mm mesh)

Aiano’s makes fan guards from both 25 x 25mm (1 x 1″) mesh and from 12 x 12 mm mesh (½ x ½”).  Fan guards made from ½ x ½” mesh are extra safe because most fingers cannot pass through such small mesh, and therefore standard clearance for bulkhead guards is sufficient. If you want a guard made from our larger 1 x 1″ mesh, then we would recommend an increased clearance of 75mm on the depth of the guard to ensure that it is finger-safe for the majority of situations.

If you are in any doubt about the correct and safe size of guard for your particular fittings, please contact us for advice.
