Wrought Iron Handrail at Pool

Project ID: #1568

Beautiful Wrought Iron Railing Complements Lakeside Home

This home on Lake Huron had a stone stairway that required a graspable metal handrail for the homeowner and their guests to feel secure when moving down the stairs from the stone patio to the stone deck around the pool. The homeowner preferred the style of wrought iron handrail. They contacted Great Lakes Metal Fabrication for our help on their metal railing project. We created this forged steel railing to meet the desires of the wrought iron handrail look for the homeowner but with the strength and security of forged steel. They added forged steel scrolls in the landscape railing and the extended lamb’s tongue ends. This brought fashion to function to the project.

Metal Handrail Takes Quality Production

We went to the home to field measure their project and ensure our metal railing would be welded to fit the slope of their stairway. Our drafting department then created renderings for the client’s approval of their ideas and our plans. We also created shop drawings for the metal fabrication team to use while welding the wrought iron handrail. After we fully welded the components, it was set for the powder coater. The zinc primer and the baked-on powder coat work against the weather and prevent rust. When the metal railings were finished and ready for install, we sent our installers out to secure them properly.

We offer many metal railing styles and options. We work with glass railing and cable railing options as well. Additionally, we offer to galvanize projects like wrought iron handrails located in high traffic areas. Because these have salt applied regularly in the wintertime. As a second-generation business, we have a great deal of experience but are still eager to extend our concepts to reach new heights.
