It’s true that metal railings have never really dropped out of fashion. However, since January, we’ve witnessed a definite rise in enquiries that would suggest that metal railings and other bespoke metalwork is making a resurgence and beginning to be even more in vogue!
Traditionally timber & other fencing products have offered a cheaper alternative, but without the benefits of low maintenance and longevity. However, since the start of 2017, the desire to install metal railings has firmly increased.
For this reason, and due to the extra capacity and storage areas afforded by moving into our new production facility, Alpha Rail has made a concerted effort to ensure many of the metalwork products in our core range are available for quick delivery where clients require standard length panels and post to suit
Many of the models in our metal railings range can be produced really quickly, and core products such as Pedestrian Guardrail, which has always been one of Alpha Rail’s most popular products, is readily available from stock, meaning we can react quickly to this increased demand.
The reasons for this shift in focus are unknown but at Alpha Rail we believe that regardless, there are significant benefits to using metal based products.
Firstly, metal railings and gates are incredibly low maintenance in comparison to wooden based products. We supply our metal railings hot dipped galvanised which helps to protect against adverse weather conditions and prevents rust from occurring.
Our metal railings and gates can also be supplied polyester powder coated to a colour of your choice. Combined with the base layer of the galvanising this should ensure that our products are maintenance free for many years and they continue to fulfil their purpose as well as looking good for long periods of time – generally well in excess of 20 years !
Adding to the low maintenance benefits, bespoke architectural metalwork can also be incredibly decorative and add a level of visual attractiveness and prestige to a project.
We’re immensely proud of our 30+-year heritage which has seen us provide metal work for BALI award winning projects as well as some of the UK’s most famous landmarks such as The Queen’s Jubilee Gardens, Hyde Park, the Kia Oval cricket ground and many, many more park restoration, regeneration projects and housing developments.
