Wrought Iron Railing: Process and Design

A custom wrought iron railing can beautifully accent a straight or curved staircase. Offering striking appeal and versatility, ornamental metal is a popular accent choice for both commercial and residential spaces. Our design team is proud to create innovative, custom handrails that take staircases to a new level. Style options are limitless, plus, we ensure quality and consistency in each wrought iron project through a proven three-step approach.

This week, let’s explore the process, from design to delivery, and discuss several top features of wrought iron railing design.

From Design to Delivery: The 3-Step Process

1. Design: Our industry-leading design team possesses the creativity and capability for limitless customization of wrought iron stair railings. Our experts work collaboratively with each client to design the perfect handrail for his/her space.

Committed to balancing style and aesthetics with budgetary and space needs, our team utilizes value engineering processes to maximize the project and minimize costs. In the design phase, we provide CAD drawings, renderings, and 3-D modeling to ensure that the railing captures the client’s unique vision and style.

2. Build: Once all renderings and drawings have been approved; the wrought iron railing is constructed. Each piece of wrought iron handrail is hand-welded in our state-of-the-art metal facility located in Alpharetta, Georgia and Charlotte, North Carolina. Our welders leverage extensive skill and industry knowledge to create the highest quality works of metal, meeting all project parameters including cost and design.

3. Install: We are committed to customer satisfaction and on-time delivery in every project. Thus, we make the third and final step of wrought iron handrail delivery simple. Through our turnkey installation process, the complete staircase and handrail are delivered to the job site and installed by our expert team.
