Decorative metal railings are functional systems that place value on architectural decoration over simple functionality.  Metal can be formed into countless shapes while still retaining many advantageous properties such as weather resistance, durability and strength-weight ratio. A wide variety of metals and alloys can be used for these elements, including aluminium and stainless steel as well as decorative features of more exotic materials such as glass, copper and zinc.  By combining these components with various finishing techniques, we can offer further uniqueness to the project team's vision.  For certain projects, designers may specify metals that will change over time resulting in a modified surface appearance (such as a patina on copper).  If a static finish is desired, painting or other coatings can be applied to protect the metal and offer a consistent and predictable finish.  Different finishes can also be used to provide variety within the same handrail.  However, a word of caution that a thorough evaluation of material reactions must be performed to insure long term performance.  Our experience with point supported stand-offs, continuous shoes, top caps, grab bars, fittings and welded connections are ready to perform on your next hand rail project.
