Alpha Rail has recently completed a metal railings project on the doorstep, just under 20 minutes away from our purpose-built premises in Nottinghamshire. South Wingfield is a small ex-mining village located in Derbyshire and home to Wingfield Manor, a ruined manor house built in the 13th century.
Despite our core market being within the commercial sector on larger scale projects, Alpha Rail was contacted by Danny James, a South Wingfield resident who needed to secure part of his property.
Located at the rear of his house is a garage where the roof serves as a terrace-styled area with access to the back door and stairs into the back garden. Being on the roof of the garage, this area is surrounded by a 3-metre fall which had to be secured in order to prevent any health and safety risks.
After exploring different options such as timber fencing and glass, it was decided that metal railings were the way forward as they met all requirements and could also be made to be aesthetically pleasing.
In total, Alpha Rail supplied 27 linear metres of 1100mm high bespoke flat top metal railings with ‘Westminster’ finials along with two matching single leaf gates at varying heights. Additionally, 6 linear metres of single handrail to steps down from the roof area. All metalwork was hot dip galvanised as standard and followed by a polyester powder coated finish in RAL 7024 granite grey, a colour that complimented the house and surrounding area perfectly.
Danny James, homeowner, commented: “I am very impressed by Alpha Rail’s level of service. Their vast portfolio of larger scale commercial projects assured me that I was in the right hands – I felt safe with Alpha Rail from the initial measure all the way through to project completion and could not be happier with the end product.”
