Bromsgrove Steel prioritises client satisfaction, and seeks to fulfil project specifications, including producing and manufacturing standardised steel balustrade designs on a budget, or creating bespoke architectural works, for the residential, commercial, and industrial sector.
Balustrades and steel handrail systems form crucial components of a staircase system, balcony, or walkway; they provide the support necessary for safely using these features, which is particularly important in public spaces. A balustrade refers to the vertical posts and infill under which a handrail sits, the handrail itself providing grip for a user. As well as fulfilling safety measures, this system presents an opportunity for stunning architectural design, intended to catch the eye.
Bromsgrove Steel works closely with clients, architects, and structural engineers whilst manufacturing stainless steel stair handrails and balustrades to ensure we meet structural and architectural specifications, delivering a product perfectly fabricated for its application.
A balustrade prevents people from falling, therefore should be 900mm from floor level in an internal space and 1100mm from floor level in an external environment, in order to best protect users from injury. However, the application of the balustrade must always be considered - balustrades may need to be higher to better prevent accidents or injuries.
Designing Handrail and Balustrade Systems
When it comes to handrail and steel balustrade design, Bromsgrove Steel offers design advice whilst working alongside onsite teams, pre-emptively manufacturing for the ease of installation. Once project specifications have been determined, Bromsgrove Steel utilises CAD software to produce detailing from which our expert engineers manufacture. Working only with UKCA marked steel, our manufacturing services include: cutting and drilling, bending and rolling, coded welding, and finishing. Our comprehensive service endeavours to cater to the wide ranging needs of individual project.
Beyond our steel balustrade design services, we also provide transportation for delivery of our balustrades and handrail systems, as well as installation. Our onsite team is fully qualified, for the safe and timely installation of our structures. These services can be provided for clients across the nation.
As steel specialists, Bromsgrove Steel fabricates mild steel and stainless steel for balustrades, as well as providing glass infills where desired.
