As well as being a building code safety requirement for staircases, balconies and decks, balustrades also give the homeowner an opportunity to put forward an attractive design that can make a stunning feature of their balconies and stairs.
And when it comes to wrought iron, ordinary staircases can be transformed into extraordinary ones with wrought iron balustrades. These create a real focal point in the home with their symmetry and geometric design.

- Horizontal rectangles below bannister and vertical balusters below
- And so many more artistic designs (see our Balustrade Gallery)
When it comes to the popular designs many of our customers choose the classic straight up and down bars which frame their staircase and create a sought after linear symmetry. Best of all the beauty of wrought iron is that it can incorporate a decorative twist or feature design in the centre of the bar. These bars are also available in a variety of widths and can be spaced close together or further apart to create different effects.
Iron = strength + durability – in all conditions
Customers can also be assured that their outdoor wrought iron balustrades for outdoor staircases or balconies are durable, strong and designed with the outdoor environment in mind. This means that they will stand up to the elements whether it’s rain, wind or just heat, wrought iron will stand the test of time.
