However, some of these benefits are simply built into the material we use for the railings.

The #1 benefit of iron railing is its versatility. No matter what sort of style or design you want for the job, this material is effective due to its ease of use. Whether you want something traditional or modern or of course you can combine these elements to make the style all your own. Let’s take a closer look at the design benefits of custom iron railings. Iron is stronger than aluminum or the thin stainless steel systems out there but by metalizing and powder coating after fabrication you will have a railing that is rust proof and beautifully finished.



Traditional Design

A traditional iron railing is something you would see around a park, playground or church. Often it is a subdued excellence. Something that doesn’t scream style, but when you take a closer look you’d see the craftsmanship at work. When you look closer, you will likely see a smoothness and consistency of the curves and an accuracy of each point. It is often a timeless design passed down through the decades and even centuries. When you go traditional, you know you have a design that will last.

Modern or Contemporary Design

With a more modern design the iron railing can be fabricated to have geometric shapes, multiple facets, rows of or columns of different elements. We can work from an architect’s drawing, a sketch from a designer, a written or verbal request and create a shop drawing in house for your approval. We can fabricate a railing for your beach house or lake front with water jet cut marine life or animals of your desire as well as any design you can conjure!

Modern Design

Lastly, we get to the modern design, which is a popular choice among homeowners. With a modern design, you see a lot of eye-catching patterns and geometric shapes. We can work the malleable iron into any shape to give you a look and feel that is of the period. And it works great for both inside and outside use. Of course, a modern design is also “of a time,” so perhaps it gets dates. But that is not the end of the world, as then it places a nostalgia.

A Combination of Designs

And since the iron railing is so malleable, you can easily choose to combine design elements. For example, you can choose to have an ornate traditional railing and combine it with a modern glass look. Or you can go for the more romantic railing for the outdoors, and when you move inside opt for a more modern look. However, you want it to look, iron railing can get the job done.
