Hand rails can be as beautiful as they are practical for your home or business. Whether a part of your staircase or anchored to a wall, they make a distinctive statement. Our company has been creating all types of railings for more than 20 years. We can take a piece of iron and hand-forge it into an artful safety feature. Yours can be as basic or as unique as you like, and we guarantee their safety.
Hand rails prevent slip and fall accidents on stairs, make people feel secure on a terrace or balcony, and give extra support along slippery walkways. Inside a home or business, they help people with physical limitations get up from a seated position or navigate a hallway. No matter what you need them for, we are here to make it a graceful – and yes, useful – part of your residence or commercial space.
Handrails are an integral part of steps, whether they are a straight shot or a spiral staircase. They have to be constructed out of the finest materials and professionally installed for a lifetime of strength. Architectural Fabricators has been making them for homes and businesses in the area for decades. We are known for putting extra attention to detail into every project we do, creating one-of-kind installations that complement the architecture.
We specialize in hand forged wrought iron because it is a material that has proven itself as a building material for millennia. Iron alloys are brought to a red-hot state and then worked to the specifications of a to-scale drawing. The iron pieces are then flattened, split, twisted and scrolled by our highly skilled artisans to create amazing looks that never change. Once they are welded together, they become a true work of art inside or out.
Choose from traditional hand forged scroll work reminiscent of an English Manor, or a more organic and contemporary look. Whatever your style, nothing reinforces it as beautifully as custom hand rails and balusters. We can add a huge range of personal adornments such as favorite flowers, animals, family crests and favorite motifs.
Installation of Hand Rails
No matter how elaborate the scroll work is beneath it, the stair rails should be smooth but not slippery. Of course, the entire assembly should be welded and screwed to make it extremely supportive no matter how much pressure is put on it. We install our hand rails to the most exacting building codes and ADA standards. You can be sure every family member or visitor will be comfortable using them. We prime and paint ours for ultimate protection from weather and easy maintenance.
Repainting and Repairs
Loose parts – Because a shift here and a wobble there can quickly add up to an injury or accident, it makes sense to repair any problems early. Rust can cause issues with metal screws or concrete anchors. Let our expert technicians weld broken pieces, tighten floor brackets and replace stripped anchors and screws. The work we do is seamless and is designed to last for years.
Rust removal – Iron alloys corrode if there is any moisture in the air. If this should happen, we will carefully remove all traces of rust by scrubbing and sanding, and then prime the metal and give it a fresh coat of paint. Fortunately, repainting is easy and cost-effective. We can also renew your existing hand rails, no matter who installed them.
