Metal Railings

As well as providing a functional and safe way of traversing stairs, railings are a perfect way to add a touch of elegance to your venue. 


When we think about railings, the first thing that comes to mind is that they are there for safety. Whether you need railings in your home or your place of work, they provide a functional purpose as something to hold onto whilst moving up and downstairs and help prevent falling.


At Customised Sheet Metal, we believe metalwork can be beautiful as well as useful. As well as helping keep you safe, metal railings can add a touch of class and elegance to a room, becoming their own piece of art. 


Our expert design and manufacturing teams have been crafting railings and many other sheet metal projects for decades. This wealth of skill, experience and knowledge allows us to develop the right product for you that’s custom made to suit not only the size requirements but the aesthetics of your space.

Why invest in bespoke railings? 

Railings, as part of a bespoke staircase, can make or break a room. As well as being functional, they can add an extra touch of class or contribute to the overall atmosphere of a venue. Whether you’re looking for a modern metal staircase for your high-end hospitality venue or a classic to match the interior of your chic hotel, we can make your vision a reality. Read on to find out why you should invest in bespoke railings.

A diverse array of materials

Our team has years of experience honing their skills in all types of sheet metal fabrication, using a plethora of materials. We work with all types of metals including zinc, copper, steel and aluminium so will be able to create a project that goes with the aesthetics of the venue.

Resolve space issues

Custom made railings as part of a staircase can help you resolve any space issues you might have. If your venue is an unusual size or shape, if it has curves or uneven ceilings, you won’t be able to use off the shelf railings as they simply won’t fit the space. Custom railings can allow you to embrace the space and use it fully, for example, a tall staircase can be used as the focal point in the middle of a room with high ceilings. 

Add bespoke details

Much like how pre-made railings won’t necessarily be the right size or shape, they also might not look exactly how you would like them to. When you invest in bespoke railings it puts you at the helm; you can decide exactly how you want them to look right down to the smallest detail. 

What kind of details can you expect from Customised Sheet Metal?

Metal railings can be created alongside a variety of other details to create a stunning final piece. 


Bannisters are the bars that go along the top of stair railings: it’s what you hold on to when you walk up the stairs. We can make metal bannisters from a variety of materials, whether you’re looking for a stylish steel bannister or a more classic looking brass one.


Balusters are otherwise known as spindles, they are the vertical individual pieces that are topped by the bannister. Spindles can be used to enhance the look of the room, can have beautiful decorative detailing and can be made from any metal from stainless steel, to copper and zinc. 


A balustrade is a collective term for a row of vertical columns, with a handrail over the top of them, often used on stairs. We have been making domestic and commercial balustrades for clients for decades, and they can be made for internal or external use. Despite balustrades being old-fashioned terminology, modern balustrades made from metal can be modern and chic looking. We can make balustrades from metals including stainless steel, zinc and many other kinds. Metal balustrade panels can also be made to match, depending on the look you have planned for your project.  


Handrails are versatile – they can be attached to the stairs themselves or as a floating feature attached to a wall in your venue.

A particularly popular metal for handrails is steel, which can be galvanised or brushed depending on the look you are going for. Like all our other work, they can be customised for whatever shape you want, for example as a tube or a pipe. Another popular choice for handrails is aluminium, perfect for modern settings.  

An example of our work

We were approached by a client who wanted a staircase made, including stylish railings. The staircase was to be made for a modern, stylish home in Swansea in South Wales and the final piece needed to match the light, contemporary feel of the rest of the home.

Our team took the time to discuss the time with the client about materials and sizing, and also measured the space to ensure the final piece would fit perfectly. The final piece matched the brief and the client was delighted.
