The metal gates that we use for our homes are made the same way metalworkers have made them for centuries. Flat bars and round bars are heated, forged, pounded, and welded into shape to create different designs and styles, and all of these steps are done by hand.

But there is a new way to make metal gates, fences, or even decorative paneling screens, and it uses the relatively new technology of laser cutting. With this technique, a pattern is created via computer, with complete dimensions and measurements. This pattern is then transferred to the laser cutting machine, which will cut out the patterns on sheet metal of a specific gauge. The cutout metal sheets are then pieced together to form the gate or fence.

It’s a new technique that guarantees accuracy of design, and allows for very intricate patterns (above), that otherwise would take months to create by hand. This laser cutting technique is called Celosia, which is a term for “separating spaces but seeing through both sides.” The cutout metal can be used for gates and fences, and also for balustrades, brise-soleil (sun shades), screens, or even accent walls. Here are some amazing Celosia designs we’ve spotted:

Geometric

 

All-white color plus a geometric pattern creates an overall sleekness in this room.

Decorative Screen

A laser cut panel can also serve as a modern accent wall for interiors.

Green wall

This unusual Celosia wall intersperses metal with living greens.

Leaves

A leaf pattern gives this panel a whimsical quality.

Sculptural 

This dramatic, 3D design adds a sculptural look to this Mexican gate.

Tree 

The tree-like pattern of this cutout screen becomes an “extension” of the actual tree.
