Mild steel frame for air conditioning unit

Industrial / commercial refit, refurbishment / structural steel fabricators / construction

The Client

Fit-out and refurbishment construction specialists

The Brief

Build a protective and accessible framework round an external air conditioning unit located in the car park of a special needs school. The major concern for the school was keeping everyone safe from the propellors in the air conditioning unit.

The Challenge

The framework had to be functional and sturdy enough to protect the air conditioning unit without being too intrusive and ugly-looking. We designed, manufactured, finished and installed a mesh-based steel structure.

We recommended 2” square mesh which served two purposes:

  1. Gave it a lighter, less solid appearance
  2. Enabled airflow around the unit

The mild steel frame was fabricated to size with access doors for servicing. Prior to installation, it was hot dipped galvanised to prevent it from going rusty.

Regulations & Safety Considerations

Safe working conditions during term time: scheduling in activity with the school and closing off our working area.


3 days start to finish.

The Result

Alroys mild steel frame to protect air conditioning unit in a school 1 1244
