The primary purpose of a balustrade is to protect people from falling off stairs. For stairways with heavy foot traffic, the strength of the material used for balustrades is crucial — Ackworth House’s metal balustrades provides tough, durable and long-lasting protection whatever the environment.
Despite its strength, appearance is not compromised. Wrought iron is a versatile material used in interior design, and can be cut, bent and decorated according to your existing space.
Paired with a well-crafted staircase from Ackworth House, a wrought iron balustrade will make your home or business safer and more attractive.
Our steel or wrought iron balustrades complement residential and commercial spaces, and perform excellently in places that need secure railings.
Once installed, steel balustrades cannot be bent or damaged under ordinary circumstances as the balusters are anchored firmly into the staircase. The metal posts can resist a high degree of impact and a huge amount of force, and provides a practical solution while maintaining the overall design aesthetics.
Steel balustrades withstand time, pressure and stress. They remain beautiful and strong after decades of wear and tear. Metal is a more robust material compared to glass and wood. Its hardness is amplified when it is processed and crafted by our artisans, making metal balustrades a worthwhile investment. Furthermore, they do not need extensive upkeep –– just regular cleaning.
Whereas wood gives off an old-world charm, and glass feels modern, metal balustrades are an interesting mix of both. They are elegant enough to blend into old, heritage properties, especially when topped with a wooden handrail. However, their clean lines and neutral colours make the space look contemporary. It is safe to say that it has a timeless appeal that can blend into every kind of interior space.
Metal is malleable; it can be formed into anything from straight posts to wrought iron curves and scrolls. Colours include sleek, matte black and shiny metal grey. The handrails can be light-coloured wood, dark-stained timber or stainless steel. Our craftsmen can create the exact balustrade system you envision.
