Although railings have been around since the Victorian era, it has only been since the 21st Century that railings featuring flat bars instead of the traditional round or square infills have become popular. With a nice, crisp, modern appearance, these have proved very popular with Landscape Architects looking to introduce a fresh contemporary edge to railing design.
After being around since 1985, we consider ourselves to be one of the leading fabricators of architectural metalwork in the UK. If you are looking to specify our products, we would love to share with you all of our technical knowledge gained. These can be found in a number of informative blogs contained within our Resource Hub. We hope you find these of interest and should you require more assistance on any matter, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
We have complimented the Alpha Rail range of metal railings with an option to manufacture panels with flat infill bars as an alternative to the traditional round or square infill bars. Flat infill bars have proved very popular with architects, designers and contractors as they deliver a contemporary look to the completed metal railings project.
The fact that the infill bars are made from rolled steel flat (RSF) give the finished product a modern appearance which has caught the eye of landscape architects over the last few years. We have supplied this product on many projects including the high profile Athletes Village for the London 2012 Olympic Games. The flat bars on this contract were complemented by the use of front and rear fixed timber planks to form a privacy screen.
As with all our metal railings flat bar infill products are supplied hot dipped galvanised to give long lasting protection against rusting with the option of a polyester powder coat to a colour of your choice from the standard RAL range.
All of the metal railings we manufacture meet the relevant British Standard rating and are compliant with BS1722 part 9.
