Advantage through technology
The comprehensive production program, modern machinery and experienced team of skilled engineers and designers ensure manufacturing only the highest quality products. Progress Architektura as the only manufacturer of architectural wire mesh and grilles employs so diverse and advanced manufacturing technologies. This results in the development of two unique product lines that determine our competitive advantage. Developed on this basis are system solutions for home and garden, as well as applications for individual architectural projects.
This is the product line of woven wire mesh, and woven wire mesh with rope, with various weave techniques. This is a complete range of versatile solutions for architectural applications both indoors and outdoors. They have proved as a perfect coverage of large areas of façades, elevations, and walls. The variety of interlace patterns, wire diameters, and execution variants allows for unlimited play with space, light, and the composition itself.
This is the product line of profiled wire grilles, flat or cylindrical. Manufactured in the advanced technology of electro-resistance welding, it features high aesthetics and exceptional stiffness and strength. It is perfect for access control as well as carrying high loads. The combination of discipline of formal with simplicity of shape is an unique offering of functionality and modern design.
Each and every product undergoes a thorough inspection process. In manufacturing processes we use materials that meet the highest quality requirements, and are sourced from approved suppliers only. So innovative approach to quality policy makes it one of the most modern managed companies in the industry.
Research and development
Improving our manufacturing processes we constantly pursue the extension of our product portfolio. We have our own research laboratory, where we analyse the performance specification of our wire meshes and grilles. Also there new product and material solutions are developed, as well as patents and utility models. At the same time we cooperate with academic research units, and with scientific institutes at home and abroad.
Innovation and high quality of our products is verified also by our Quality Management System, certified since 1996 and compliant with the international standard EN ISO9001: 2000 approved by Lloyd's Quality Assurance. It includes, inter alia: design and manufacturing of welded, perforated, braided. and woven wire mesh.
In its manufacturing Progress Architektura utilises a wide range of top quality products. It has very rich experience in the treatment of many metals ranging from stainless steel to aluminium. Therefore we can ensures the optimal material variants, taking into account the individual conditions of use, resistance to weathering, design requirements, and budgetary constraints. The most commonly used materials include:
The interest in stainless steel keeps growing in the world of architecture. All this because of its very high resistance to corrosion and detergents, as well as strength at high and low temperatures. At the same time it is an environmentally friendly material. This extremely durable and practical material is characterized by high aesthetics and elegance.

Pro-ZINAL® is a metallic coating, an alloy of zinc and aluminium, protecting the traditional carbon steel. It ensures strength and high corrosion resistance even in welds. The resistance tested according to EN 9227 standard. This innovative solution allows to reduce manufacturing costs. And its reduced weight widens the range of applicable technical solutions. For indoor and outdoor applications
Aluminium and its alloys are increasingly used also in architecture and construction. They owe it in the first place to the following properties: low specific gravity, high corrosion resistance, easy workability, high thermal and electrical conductivity, and maintenance of mechanical and physical properties at low temperatures. Compared with other metals, aluminium density is low. It a quite plastic metal.
Copper is now, besides the omnipresent iron and aluminium, one of the most important metals used by man, also in architecture. Mainly due to its unique aesthetic qualities. Also copper alloys are widely used, and the basic ones include the copper-tin alloy called bronze, and copper-zinc alloy called brass.
Bronze is an alloy of copper with other metals and, optionally, other elements (with copper weight content 80-90 %). The bronze composition is specified by Polish Standard PN-xx / H-87050. Bronzes have good mechanical properties, and are easily workable. High-alloy bronzes may also be hardened. They have good anti-friction properties, and are resistant to heat and corrosion. The use of bronzes is limited due to their high price.
Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc with copper content up to 40%. Brass alloys may also contain additives of such metals as lead, aluminium, tin, manganese, iron, chromium, and silicon. Brass is yellow (gold), but with lower zinc contents it approaches the natural color of copper. This alloy is corrosion resistant, ductile, and easily formable. Under normal operating conditions brass features good resistance to atmospheric corrosion and water.
Seeking a balance between aesthetics, functionality, and costs, a source of satisfactory solutions can be found in the various surface finish options that we offer. The basic finishes include:
Electropolishing is a surface smoothing technique, by which the surface of a mesh or grille is brightened, smoothed, and protected against corrosion. Applied to chromium-nickel steel, it also hardens its surface. The surfaces so treated gain durable and aesthetic appearance.
Etching and passivation
Etching and passivation processes improve the surface appearance, smooth out scratches, and remove welding blemishes. Passivation leads to the formation of an oxide layer, which makes the surface hard and tight, and isolates the metal from corrosive environment impact.
Shot peening is an abrasive blasting technique using ceramic or glass micro-balls. The process gives the product surface an uniform, dulled surface thus eliminating all processing discolorations. For indoor applications.
Electro or hot dip zinc coating protects the product against corrosion and can be the final finish or the primer for powder coating. In a corrosive environment the zinc coat features from a few to a dozen times higher corrosion resistance than a non zinc coated steel.
Powder coating is a technique that provides very good corrosion protection, and availability of a wide range of colours. Powder coated can be products made of aluminium, carbon steel, and galvanized steel. For indoor and outdoor applications
Nickel plating serves the purpose of anti-corrosion protection, decoration, as well as technology. The most durable coating is obtained by covering steel with a layer of copper, and then a thin layer of nickel. Nickel coating may have slight discoloration with dulled texture. For indoor applications.
