Industrial solidity and vision since 1975

Ours is a story of passion and commitment that began in 1975. Lionello Bortolato opened the business in the town of Massanzago (Padua province) at a very young age, specialising in the manufacture of industrial shelving components and later, on the fabrication of metal shelving accessories and more advanced warehouse systems, focusing on metal profiles for walkways and mezzanines.

Our company grew exponentially and underwent continuous expansions. It first moved its operations to the nearby town of Trebaseleghe and then back to Massanzago. The construction of a new building got under way here in 1986, now an 8,000-square metre facility that is the beating heart of our grating fabrication operations.

As the company grew, our professionals heightened their specialised skill-set and the machinery was constantly upgraded with cutting-edge technologies.

In 1987, our company changes its name to ABA but the quality continues to be the same as always. As a result of its reliability, fast turnaround, on-time deliveries and product customization, the company takes a stronger position in the grating and metal profile fabrication market. We become the company of choice for prestigious customers, who are certain to find with us the custom solutions they need.
Being a partner to the biggest metal shelving and logistics equipment companies is our highest priority.
In 2005, a corporate change marks the birth of Abagrigliati and the second generation takes the helm. A new chapter of our story of entrepreneurship begins, in a spirit of innovation and development in grating fabrication.

Our relentless search for quality led us to achieve UNI EN 9001 Quality Certification as early as 1996. The certification was updated to the latest version in 2018.

Thanks to our ability to design and fabricate flexible, functional and efficient solutions in the field of metal gratings and components for shelving systems, today we meet the market with a distinct identity and know-how strongly oriented towards customization.

Abagrigliati shows its willingness to ensure the best possible service by pursuing best practices day after day.
This perspective and constant teamwork have led our company to reach important goals that have made us a company of choice in the field of metal grating fabrication. For example, we achieved compliance with regulation 305/2011 for CE 1090-1 EXC3 marking of steel and aluminium profiles; but also slip resistance certification, following the tests performed by an accredited laboratory and those performed by the experimental laboratory of construction materials testing of the University of Padua’s ICEA Department. In addition, welding operations are compliant with the UNI EN 3834 standard.

Besides fabricating gratings, metal profiles and accessories for warehouse shelving systems, we supply walkway, mezzanine, stair and deck components to leading plant engineering companies but also serve the needs of our long-standing customers, and more recent ones (like photovoltaic panel installers), with the same level of commitment and attention in the customization of their products.

Our number one objective is to satisfy both our customers and the people who collaborate with us through continuous improvement of every company process and rigorous management of issues regarding the quality, health, and safety of workers and the environment.
For this reason, in addition to operating under the certifications listed above, we also abide by UNI INAIL guidelines and Model 231 on the Administrative Accountability of Companies.

Product Certifications

We place a lot of emphasis on quality but are also very attentive to functionality and safety issues. For this reason, activities are now under way at our company for the implementation of CE marking for our products and thus, certification to UNI EN 1090.

Slip resistance. The specific anti-slip properties of some of our products (stair treads and profiles) are certified to DIN 51130. On request, we can provide the following certificates together with our products: GB2; GE; GF; GP; RSC; ZA; ZB; ZB2; ZBC; ZFR; XB; XF; Rung.

Anti-heel. The small size of the perforations prevent any heel from getting caught in the grate. A diameter of less than 15 mm is considered the standard size for an anti-heel hole, even though there is no regulation currently in place.

Anti-panic. The perforated pattern of the stair tread creates a visual barrier. This makes it less likely for people to suffer from dizziness, especially if the staircase is of a great height.

Self-cleaning. In perforated stair treads, the open design prevents build-up of water, snow and debris, keeping the surface clean.

Ball-proof or glass marble-proof. The size of the holes and slots, where present, is such that a 2-cm-diameter ball cannot pass through, as required under the current regulation.

Work platforms and walkways. These meet the requirements under UNI EN ISO 14122-2.
