The professionalism and commitment in the installation works of the pieces and parts of the shrine's nw grid of Aba Al-Fadl Al-Abbas (peace be upon him) continue to complete all its parts, and recently with the participation of the High Responsible of the Al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine; Sayed Ahmed Al-Safi, the installation of the grid's lateral columns surrounding the grid's knotworks was completed. These columns are characterized by several advantages in terms of strength, durability, sobriety and accuracy in the manufacture and the harmony with artistic and creative touches, added to the already installed grid's bases, roses and lower crowns.
These side columns have features and specifications that are the first of their kind in term of manufacturing and structure like the rest of the parts of the holy grid, these 18 columns are made with pure silver of calibre 999, 2% mixed with pure gold of calibre 999, with a weight of 19 kg and thickness of 15 mm, which means higher than the old column thickness that was of 1mm, this increase in thickness and height was not done randomly, but it was made in artistic way that was studied by increasing the proportion of gold and silver, so the new grid enjoys of a longer life and higher resistance against blackening, to make it have lustre and vivid colour.
The new columns are characterized on top of the thickness and the fine crafstmanship in their manufacture, they have high strength and durability, which gave it additional resistance capacity for long periods of time. They are also characterized by their way of installation on the wooden structure, which is the first of its kind in the installation of other grids, as it is an exclusive and creative hidden method used by the factory's staffs, contrary to the grid's installation methods used before.
The precision and the technology used to build up these columns and all parts of new shrine's grid of Aba Al-Fadl Al-Abbas ( peace be upon him ) is the first of its kind not only in Iraq but in all the countries specialized in the shrines' grid industry, which is a precedent of the Al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine in this field.
