Metal Railings

A staircase or entry way are only as safe as their railings. Our team is dedicated to building sturdy banisters that don’t falter with added pressure. A metal railing can be hand crafted in any metals of your choosing; steel, solid picket, tubed, circular or squared, the wrought iron has a high resistance to fatigue, and we closely follow safety regulations to make sure, and feel confident that we are providing our clients with something that they can stand behind and be supported by. We are confident in the quality of our designs, and work closely with you so that your vision can become a reality.

If you own a business we can help maintain safety while preserving the beauty of your store front.

If COVID-19 has affected the way your business functions such as new government regulations around entry, line-up corals, additional safety shield/sneeze-guards and other similar needs we are able to work with you in creating an everlasting piece that will look beautiful while providing safety and not upset the flow of your business.
