Montana State

Montana-state-united-states

Montana is a western state defined by its diverse terrain ranging from the Rocky Mountains to the Great Plains. Its wide-open spaces include Glacier National Park, a vast wilderness preserve that passes into Canada. The park’s many snow-capped peaks, lakes and alpine hiking trails are showcased along its famed Going-to-the-Sun Road, stretching 50 miles.

Montana is the 4th biggest state in land area in the United States after Alaska, Texas, and California and the 3rd most sparsely populated state after Alaska and Wyoming. To the north, Montana shares a border with the Canadian provinces of British Columbia, Saskatchewan, and Alberta. The US states of Wyoming shares a border with Montana to the south, North Dakota and South Dakota to the East and Idaho to the west.

Montana's name comes from the Spanish word "montaña" which translates to "mountain" or "mountainous area. However, Montana has an average elevation of only 3400 feet - the lowest elevation among the US mountain states.

The famous Rocky Mountains stretches from British Columbia in the north west - south east direction into western Montana state, Wyoming, and Idaho.

On the eastern side of Montana, the landscape is however gently rolling where millions of sheep and cattle graze on its land with the minimal human settlement. This portion is part of the northern Great Plains which is shared with North, South Dakota, Wyoming and the Canadian provinces of Saskatchewan and Alberta.

The state capital of Montana is Helena.

Montana's residents are scattered and stay relatively far from the markets for their products as well as from the United State's supplies and manufacturing hubs. Montana is famous for summer and winter sports as well as hunting and fishing. Residents are used to taking frequent long distance trip for socializing and entertainment.

Despite Montana's northern location, Montana is pretty much a Western state at heart. Montana joined the union as the 41st state in 1889 and was the union's leading copper-mining state. Nicknamed the "Treasure State", Montana has a lot of mineral wealth within its land.

The majesty of natural stone is perhaps best expressed by the magnificence of the stone castles of England. Inspired by the rustic appeal of natural stone, we wondered if the material could be used to make functional and beautiful grates.

With our eye for detail, exquisite craftsmanship and the infinite possibilities we offer in texture and color, our engaging designs in gratings complement the vision of international architects and designers.
