Metal Stairs and Railings
Metal Stairs have their own innate beauty and are versatile and adaptable to any staircase layout. Each design is unique and tailored to your specific stairs needs. The options for bannisters are infinite.
Bulfin Curved stairs are superbly crafted and catch the eye instantly. The elegance and grace of curved stairs has increased their popularity.
Metal banisters for curved stairs has become a speciality for us here at Bulfin Stairs. We have developed a way of forming metal, wrought iron and other materials to the exact curves of individual stairs. This process involves ‘hot work’ (heating the metal until it glows red) to make the metal workable.
The advantage of ‘hot work’ is that the banister follows the exact pitch of the stairs. This is done on site. The curved railings and templates are then brought back to our workshop where the intricate and artistic work is carried out.
Another reason for returning to the workshop is to take full advantage of the specialist facilities we have here at Bulfin Stairs metal workshop and metal finishing process (powder coating).
Another advantage of ‘hot work’ is that strong banisters can be formed without the use of heavy machinery and using very little force this makes it possible to follow the exact pitch of any curved stairs, wood, concrete or metal and has made our banisters popular with Joinery’s specialising in curved stairs.
People often associate metal staircases with very classic design. But in fact metal stairs design also lends itself very well to the sleekest and most elegant of contemporary design.
