  • Balcony Railings -  Whether new design or retrofit, the type of architectural balcony railings used on a project will have a profound impact on its final look. With a wide range of options - from picket, glass and wire mesh, to perforated panel and custom styles - specifiers are sure to find the appropriate solution for their multi-story facility.  Balcony railings are embedded, surface, or side mounted.  As with all railings, be sure that your railing of choice meets loading requirements and local building codes.

  • Stair Railings - Believe it or not, robust, sturdy guardrails can also be aesthetically pleasing.  Suited for indoor or outdoor applications, stair railings are designed to fit your jobsite-specific requirements.  Railings are built to fit the angle of the stair for a customized, flawless appearance.  Hand rails are also designed for the wall adjacent to the guardrail to provide added support for staircase traffic. 

  • Patio Railings - Decorative and functional - two words that best describe patio railings.  From courtyards to outdoor dining and recreation areas, patio railings are the perfect way to define the perimeter of an open and airy space.  Patio railings are commonly seen surrounding a university quad, or encompassing large seating areas on the grounds of a condominium complex.
