The servants of Aba Al-Fadl Al-Abbas (peace be upon him) at the factory of shrines' grids, have finished the installation of the knot-works on the wooden structure of the new grid..

Coinciding the blessed birth anniversary of Lady Zaynab (peace be upon her), with high and fierce determination that derived from the owner of the grid Aba Al-Fadl Al-Abbas (peace be upon him), the staff of the factory of the Al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine for the manufacture of holy shrines and sanctuaries' grids continue the manufacture of its pieces and their installation, which progresses clearly day after day, and its features began to be seen according to the developed plan by the supervisory committee of the manufacture of the new grid of Aba Al-Fadl Al-Abbas (peace be upon him).

The staff are working to accomplish this project as soon as possible within the required specifications, harnessing all their efforts for this objective. And thank to God, the installation of all the pieces of traceries on the wooden structure have been done in a private hall of the plant, hoping to complete it fully very soon, in order to dismantle it and move the wooden structure to the place of the current grid of Aba Al-Fadl Al-Abbas (peace be upon him) to reinstall all the pieces on it.

The works of the grid's manufacture are in parallel with the installation of the ready pieces on the wooden structure, and in the next phase, the door of the grid will be installed as it is one of the part of these "Duhna", and then manufacturing and installing the upper parts like the Quranic inscriptions, "Tarrat", "al-Kalwi", the roof and other parts, which will try to define in detail in the future once they are completed.

Each knot-work (Duhan) consists of 238 silver ball and 36 hemispheres that are joined with each other by 501 handles, called "Zabanah," its height is of 23 lines and 12 lines of balls for its width. The thickness of each ball is of 3 mm, while the 6500 handles are of 6mm each, all of which are manufactured of pure silver of 999 carat blended by 2% with pure gold, embraced by a wooden frames coated with silver frame of (1,5mm) and lined with stainless steal frames, all of which joined at a point called the crown of triangle (14 triangle's crowns), also made of pure 22 carat gold with a thickness of (1,25mm) and a compilation of the golden triangles (right and left) made of pure 22 carat Gold, with a thickness of 1mm with a measurement of (77 cm x 52 cm) for each triangle.

It is to mention that the new grid of the shrine of the Master Aba Al-Fadl Al-Abbas (peace be upon him) was manufactured in the workshops of the crafts' factory belonging to the Al-Abbas's (p) Holy Shrine with high quality, durability and accuracy. In fact it is the first grid which is entirely manufactured in Iraq with Iraqi handicrafts-men. It is also characterized by the originality of its engravings and decorations in addition to the fact that it keeps the same overall structure and engravings of the old one, with few additions, upgrades and modifications, because of its uniqueness design comparing to the grids of the holy shrines in Iraq and in the Islamic world.
