Alpha Rail specialise in the manufacture and installation of metal railings, primarily on commercial projects across a whole range of sectors, ranging from park restorations to new build housing developments. As our extensive archive of completed projects illustrates, we are able to manufacture a diverse range of bespoke and standard metal railings to suit project requirements.
Our choice of materials and fabrication processes ensures quality metalwork that will last for many years in the toughest of conditions. We understand that our metalwork serves an important practical purpose but also that it must compliment its surrounding environment, which is why we offer a choice of designs, materials and finishes. A project can often begin as a hand drawn sketch of railings featuring lettering, motifs or logos, which our CAD technicians interpret and bring to life as the project progresses.
All of the metal railings we manufacture meet BS 1722 Part 9 – British Standard for Railings and Gates
We are also able to supply metal railings with anti trap spacing which are compliant with BS EN 1176, the European Standard which denotes that infill bars are placed closer together to reduce the risk of children trapping their head in between the upright bars. This type of metal railing is often called Playspec and as you would expect is more commonly used for school and playground projects.
The visual appearance of our metal railings can be further enhanced by the use of decorative rail heads and post finials.
We can manufacture standard vertical bar railings as well as five alternative designs, each having a slight twist in appearance to offer further choice.
The steel balustrade we manufacture meet both the demands of building regulations in providing a barrier to prevent people from falling from height or into stairwells.
The installation of stair railings such as balustrade and handrail reduce the likelihood of falls, slips or trips when ascending or descending a stairwell.
