Metal railings compliment stylish new housing development

Metal railings compliment stylish new housing development

Following a successful proposal in 2017 to build 49 new affordable homes located in the heart of Luton, Hatter’s Place on Charles Street has recently reached project completion.

Hatter’s Place offers a variety of properties available, from 1-2 bedroom apartments to 2-3 bedroom houses. The development boasts quick access to places such as Luton Station, the shopping centre and the M1 motorway, allowing for travel into London in less than half an hour.

With the houses being built in a modern style, it was essential that the metal railings followed suit, in order to maximise the contemporary effect and keep the development looking consistent throughout.

Charles Street Luton Standard bow top railings

Alpha Rail was appointed by Jarvis Contracting Ltd to supply and install 74 linear metres of standard bow top railings, along with 55 linear metres of vertical bar railings throughout the development. The metalwork was hot-dipped galvanised as standard, followed by a polyester powder coated finish in RAL 9005 jet black. Further to this, additional handrail and balustrade was installed to some areas where it was required which was also finished in black. This offers a nice contrast against the colourful architecture of the buildings, which all ties into the modern feel of the development.

Commenting, Phil Ball, Sales Director at Alpha Rail said: “Having worked on many a housing development in our 35+ years of experience, we were happy to supply and install metalwork that would add the finishing touches to this development. Metal railings can often help add to the overall style of the project, and we can confidently say that the addition of bow top railings and vertical bar railings look great at Charles Street.”
