Due to the number of possible options available if you have researched and found a specific design or commissioned a bespoke design in preference to our offering - as with all fence types we are also happy to work with you on a fit only basis.
Railings typically refers to metal railings and whilst most security fencing is made from metal and follows a 'rail system' this section provides a brief overview of the options for metal railing where security is not your main consideration.
Railings in a residential setting are mostly found in front gardens or to mark an enclosure in a back garden. They are also commonly used on balconies and are made of either wrought iron or steel.
There is a large variety of designs for metal railings with many companies offering bespoke options but as with most forms of fencing they fall into broad categories.
For metal railings the main 3 categories are:
Flat top railing:
As the name suggests the top of the rail if simply a flat bar. In its most basic design another horizontal bar will run along the bottom with vertical bars running between the two. However, there are many more variations available from this basic start point - featuring circles, waves, nodules or additional horizontal bars to provide a more ornate design.
For domestic fencing the spear shape at the top of the vertical bars is more of a design aspect rather than a climbing deterrent. Many subtle variations of the spear design are available as well as additional design features being included in the bar section.
Rather than a spear, a ball is featured at the top of the vertical bar. This again can vary in size and similar ornate design options can be found in the bar section.
