FOTOBLECH - fences and railings
Fotoblech balconies in Vienna's Döbling district, Nussberggasse.
Floral design. With their charming combination of functionality and aesthetics, floral motifs in photobleaching are a popular choice for balconies.
They create an inviting atmosphere and give the balconies a unique flair.
Integrated handrail. Fotoblech balconies often forgo a separate handrail and instead integrate it into the surface, resulting in a reduced, aesthetically flat appearance.

Street-side privacy screens and court- yard-side railings
Railings that are opaque enough so that no one needs to install their own privacy screen.
Ulm, Wohnen am Weinberg
Railing and privacy screen
Square and triangular perforation with a downward vertical flow that is opaque.
FOTOBLECH with curves. Punched Fotoblech sheets are not limited to rectangular shapes, but can adapt to any form.
This is particularly advantageous for gates with arches, as shown by the example of the Alsbach brewery.
Fotoblech sheets are individually and precisely cut to meet specific needs and achieve an aesthetically pleasing result. The use of Fotoblech sheets provides high flexibility in adapting to given natural dimensions.

FOTOBLECH Special: Sloping sheets at their best
Patterns in a new form. With Fotoblech, the rows and columns of the perforated sheets can be adapted to the outer shape - even if it is not rectangular.
No matter whether it is a generated pattern from one of our pattern generators or a converted image template.
The hole sizes adapt to this as well. This makes it very easy to implement slopes in fences, sloping walls or perspective effects without the edges "fraying" or showing unwanted staircase effects.

FOTOBLECH - Coarse perforation with fine transitions
Sharp transitions. The transitions between the hole sizes are calculated in such a way that they appear sharp and there are no steps in the slopes.
Project number: 210520-01
FOTOBLECH Special: railing with border and dynamic pattern
Our pattern generator "Square" with dynamic hole probability and the frame "Balcony 1".
With dynamic hole probability, the hole probability depends on the hole size.

FOTOBLECH-Balconies in Vienna Liesing, Eschenpark
Floral pattern. An abstract floral pattern cascades over all parts so that the pattern runs continuously.
Due to the pattern arrangement, different high railings form a uniform image.
Optimum transparency. By sampling on a scale of 1:1, the optimum transparency can be determined in advance. This can be controlled almost arbitrarily and is usually between 20 and 25%.

FOTOBLECH - Fence
Slopes and maximum height. The fence system has different slopes with fence panels up to 2 meters high.
FOTOBLECH-Railing in Vienna 22, Baranygasse
Generated pattern. A balcony railing from our "White Noise" pattern generator.
The square perforation runs in straight rows with only one hole size with a probability of 60%.
Made-to-measure unique items. All railing fields are calculated individually and the perforation fits exactly into the specified dimensions. Although the fields are of different lengths in detail, the overall picture is homogeneous.

FOTOBLECH with initials at the gate
With FOTOBLECH, special highlights are set up.
In this example you can see initials in a doorway.
FOTOBLECH can easily be integrated into other systems of fences and railings.
Applied on glass FOTOBLECHE elements can also be.
FOTOBLECH can also be combined with standard perforated sheets. The centers of the holes remain neatly arranged so that a smooth transition to other hole patterns is possible.
Most mounting systems can be used without modification. We often edge the sheets, however, so that less substructure is necessary than normal.
Diamond shape: slanted photo sheets for stair railings and fence fields
Especially for garden fences and banisters, the perforated plates can not only be rectangular, but can also climb according to the slope of the terrain and thus form a rhombus.
The rows of holes follow the slope regardless of the pattern and create a harmonious image. Here is an example of a generated pattern of our pattern generator "Strings 1". Sample page, example
FOTOBLECH in security Sliding
Especially on company premises safety is extremly important.
With FOTOBLECH you can combine safety and design.
You can see here an example of an industrial door with integrated logo.
In this case, the use of stainless steel due to the higher strength is better than aluminum.
The margins are with very small holes so that it looks like one frame. Even if you look from the side of the photo sheet the subject is very easy to see. Even if the gate is dirty the theme can be recognized easily. The sun's rays break in each of the holes and let the FOTOBLECH shimmer.
FOTOBLECH Special: Garden fence with gradient and gradual transparency
Garden fences are often also a privacy screen.
Here is an example using our "Tile 4" pattern generator with gradient, jitter effect and one that runs continuously and becomes increasingly dense.

FOTOBLECH with ornament
FOTOBLECH is particularly well suited for any type of ornament.
Many classical and modern ornament patterns are available.
They can serve as a decorative element or as a framework, for example.
Here in this example you can see a fence with an ornamental element.
All kinds of mosaics can be customized with FOTOBLECH and reinterpret. If you have a pattern or ornament and want to know how it looks like in FOTOBLECH: Just send it to us. You get back a preview not binding.
FOTOBLECH as a garden gate
and an almost opaque background.
Unlike normal perforated sheets, Fotobleche
clearly convey what to expect. A message is conveyed.
The purpose inherent in the component is carried outwards.

Fences and railings are typical applications for FOTOBLECHE.
This example shows not only the aesthetic but also the functional advantages.

For fences and railings you can, for example, integrate your house number or your company logo. In addition, you can precisely control the opacity for each area. So, like here, garbage containers can be easily hidden.

A 4-piece furring an automatic sliding door with a company logo to be seen at the Main Square Freistadt. From a distance the grid is no longer perceived but the glass constructions and the logos behind. Coming nearer the lattice effect is more obvious than from the distance.
