About Humber Railings

The Humber metal railings are a very eye catching addition to our vertical bar range, as it features a spherical top finial on square posts, and round infills. The Humber is perfect for adding that extra detailing to enhance street railings, yet combines the all important need for security with a safety conscious rounded finial so as not to cause harm. It is therefore a very popular choice for use as a boundary fence for schools or parks.
