The Yarg tree guard is made up of an outer frame formed by four aluminium parts with a rectangular geometry measuring 180 x 80 cm. The combination of the four cast aluminium covers permits three different formations, depending on the requirements in terms of protection and improving accessibility.
Yarg is a response to the request made by Barcelona City Council to resolve the problem of improving accessibility by adapting the tree guards aligned on the narrow passageways that cross the blocks of the Eixample neighbourhood in Barcelona. Its design is based on a single type of main cover with triangular vents to adapt the ends of the guard fixed to the frame with stainless steel screws. One or two central optional covers are located in the interior with grooved surfaces, inserted into the main covers without screws.
The outer frame generates an opening of 180 x 80 cm. The combination of two types of covers permits four different formations, depending on the requirements related to protection. An internal space for the tree with different dimensions: with no central covers 78 x 78 cm / with one central cover 78 x 44 cm / with two central cover 78 x 34 cm.
Outer frame formed by four inserted pieces and cast aluminium covers. Main covers of 80 x 51 cm with triangular vents. Optional central covers of 78 x 23 cm with a grooved top surface. Both have a ribbed reinforcement at the bottom. The frame is installed leaving the anchoring legs embedded in the concrete slab around the perimeter. The main covers are fixed to the frame with stainless steel screws. The central covers are inserted into the openings on the main covers.
