Cowshed Balustrade

About this project

This contemporary iron balustrade provided the finishing touch to the staircase in this newly built Sussex house. Our modern forged railing maximises the stair width and shows off the fantastic plastic qualities of hot forged metal. As with many of our projects we made ingenious custom hydraulic press tooling to produce the fixing details.  The handrail comprised of over 6m of customsteel section which was forged down on our industrial power hammers.
