Iron and Steel Balustrades: The Perfect Touch for Your Home

steps and balustradeGetting the look just right for a balcony or exterior staircase isn’t easy – in many cases, designing a walk-on or feature balcony requires knowledge of practicality as well as a keen eye for contemporary flair.  The design portion can always fall to the homeowner seeking to benefit – but it takes the knowledge of an experienced manufacturing and installation firm to ensure that the best materials are used during fabrication for a balcony to be just as practical as it is visually stunning.  Popular materials used in balustrades both in and outside the home are iron and steel – not only due to their durable, weather-resistant properties, but also as a result of their flexibility.

Balustrades exterior to the home

Adding that extra touch

When it comes to design, iron and steel really are your allies.  Balustrades made from these metals can be fabricated and galvanised to feature flourishes, patterns, twists and bends that playfully mimic styles dating back centuries, allowing you to bring a real touch of decadence to your home.  Iron and steel balustrades that are custom-designed can make a balcony installation all the more special, particularly if it is large enough to be walked out onto for entertaining – balustrades incorporating your own design and based upon luxurious styles and ideals of centuries gone by will really bring a talking point to any party or gathering, and best of all, they will withstand years – if not decades – of careful use.

Steve did a top job with the stainless steel barrier. The work was so good that the boss, Ian, would like you to provide a quote for another other style barrier.
