Stairs and balustrades
Our craftsmen work with brass, bronze, stainless steel, mild steel, wrought iron or cast iron to create individually designed balustrades that suit your tastes and the style and scale of your property.
Our skills, attention to detail and workmanship are trusted by some of the UK’s most prominent and prestigious properties, from Westminster Abbey and the Houses of Parliament to Castle Howard and York Minster.
We have more than 35 years’ experience of conserving and restoring historic wrought and cast iron work, and we’re proud to continue the traditions of the golden age of British ironworking.
We craft unique handrails from bronze, steel and wrought iron, as well as combining these metals with leather, chrome or timber features. We can create handrails in any shape or form suit your particular requirements.
To lead in our industry requires collaboration with carefully aligned specialist partners. our relationships with leading architects, designers, specialist contractors, conservation experts, pattern makers and foundries are central to our ability to meet the exacting standards demanded by our discerning customers.
We offer personalised spindles with designs of your choice etched into brass or stainless steel. Branded spindles can create unique balustrades, screens or decorative features for lobbies, reception areas, shops, restaurants, homes and businesses.
We are proud that our craftsmen are entrusted to maintain and restore the authentic fabric of the UK’s most iconic cathedrals. Our ornate workmanship can be seen across the UK, from St Paul’s Cathedral to York Minster.
We work closely with pattern makers and foundries to repair and reproduce stunning cast ironwork in all its glory. By working with our partners to restore cast iron features, we keep the beauty of this classic material alive for future generations.
