As specialists in bespoke metalwork, Alpha Rail often gets involved in projects that require complicated metalwork solutions. A recent project in South West London was no exception, where there was a requirement for added privacy on a new extension to an apartment building.
A new extension to an existing residential apartment building located at 70 West Hill will provide five new high-end apartments for the area.
Designed by Norton Mayfield Architects, the building is located on the corner of a road junction, therefore a solution was required that would offer privacy to the residents as well as being aesthetically pleasing.
Contracted by Cherry Contractors, Alpha Rail supplied and installed 38 linear metres of 800mm high decorative vertical bar railings, bespoke ‘window railing’ panels along with matching fan panels to the courtyards and terraces of the new flats. All materials were galvanised as standard, followed by a polyester powder coated finish in RAL 9011 – graphite black.
The decorative window railing panels were manufactured to be a perfect fit inside the window frames, so as to prevent any unauthorised access and provide a level of security as well as privacy for residents. Along with the functionality of this metalwork came the fantastic aesthetics – the end result was very impressive and attributed to the prestigious appearance of the new extension.
Avi Kirsch, of Cherry Contractors, commented: “We started out with some concepts and basic ideas for the metalwork, and Alpha Rail offered design assistance in order to turn the ideas into a reality. Not only are they effective at providing a level of security to the flats, they look great and fit in well with the overall style of the building.”
As Alpha Rail works nationwide, a good number of our projects take place in London. As a result, we have a fantastic portfolio of high-profile projects that have been completed over the years. Wandsworth is a London borough that is home to Battersea Park, where we installed over seven miles of metal railings as part of a major restoration project many years ago. A wide range of railings were installed in various colours, which is a testament to our abilities when it comes to manufacturing metal railings to meet exact project requirements.
