We recently had a church in Northfield reach out to us for a set of handrails to be fabricated for inside the building to be able to let their community and pastors go up the few steps up to a platform safely. The task was fairly simple but we wanted to make sure the design made sense for the church, which included selecting the perfect color and finish for the piece. The client was looking for a gold finish to somewhat mimic the look of bronze. Bronze is typically more expensive than wrought iron, but our painted finish provided a great substitute without sacrificing anything in regards to the design and aesthetic of the final product. The style happened to be more traditional and from taking measurements to fabrication we spent roughly 2 weeks getting everything ready and prepared for the final installation. We also made sure to curl the edges inwards to ensure that no one’s loose or flowing clothing would get snagged by the handrail and possibly cause harm. This is a style of handrail that we often recommend for most of our customers.
Installation itself was a little complicated as we had to make sure we would not crack the stone we were drilling into, but we had everything under control and the final product turned out fantastic. We really enjoyed creating this piece and if you are looking for a custom handrail for your commercial or residential property – shoot us an email using out contact form. We have a wide variety of colors from Rust-oleum that are all oil based and we can combine various shades if you’re looking to incorporate more than one color for the final product.
Prior to requesting a quote we ask that our customers provide us with a rough length of hand rail they will need, the desired color, as well as a possible design for inspiration. Once we have those elements in place we can quickly put together pricing. After a quote is accepted, we typically will then come out to do final measurements to ensure that installations go smoothly. This is also something that differentiates our boutique metal facility from others, as we are with you the entire process. Some shops may specialize in only the fabrication and ask you for all the measurements, we do our best to be with the client and/or their designer throughout the entire process. We can also make suggestions based on a particular design or theme and we have a wide range of examples of our past work available on our site or Houzz, which is a great resource for a variety of projects around the world when it comes to building and designing.
