Acadia Stairs focuses on stairs first, but our talents don’t stop there. We fabricate and sell many different items to help compliment your stair. We make all kinds of railings from modern Stainless Steel Railings with custom fabricated panels, to cable railing systems. We also make traditional wrought iron railings and decorative wrought iron banisters.
Exterior modern stainless steel railings like these can be customized with almost any kind of post and handrail profile.We offer a bead blasted-matte or brushed finish.
This is a more traditional wrought-iron style railing, but with brass molding handrail and brass decorative balusters, the steel is powder coated white.
Below is a sample of some of our other railing work. We love making railings for both our stairs, and existing staircases. If you don’t see the style you are looking for here, just e-mail us your inspiration picture or sketch, we will be happy to consult with you on design and pricing.
A circular well railing for around the opening of a spiral staircase. This railing is steel, finish painted with a flat black. The hardware is also painted black. The railing is 1 1/2″ round steel, the balusters are 3/4″ round steel.
This commercial spiral staircase has a 42″ high guard rail and a 36″ high handrail. The well railing is part of the center pole of the spiral stair, and we made it to match the style.
This spiral stair has been integrated with a traditional railing around the stair well. The wooden spindles and newell post are have a standard colonial railing on the top. This railing system attaches to the center pole of the spiral stair for extra strength and security.
A traditional closed riser entry staircase is enhanced by a custom made stainless steel panel railing system. This is a great way to get a modern look. Here the old wobbling wooden spindles and newel posts were replaced with an new industrial strength railing. The brushed stainless steel and sloping design make turn this foyer into a show piece.
The lambs tongue at the bottom of the railing has been custom forged to make the ends of the railing match other architectural details at the home.
This is a horizontal railing system. Each line is custom cut and welded to the near face of the posts for a tailored look. Welding the lines on the outside of the posts is cheaper, but lends itself to a more industrial look.
We weld the lines so that they float around the corners; a subtle touch that gives a very clean look.
Here is a close-up view of the brushed stainless steel railing. Gripping the railing you have a smooth feel, while the look is very modern it is very comfortable.
This is our cable railing system panel ready for shipment. We weld the railing to the posts. The posts are pre-drilled for the cables. The cables have threaded terminals custom swagged on each end for the cleanest look, but are shipped loose for final adjustment in the field.
A balcony railing with a wrought iron look. This balcony rail has a special gate design in the middle to allow access to the upper doors for large items to into & out of storage. The railing here is fascia mounted for maximum usable space on the deck.
This is a stainless steel railing using machined components. The ends of the tubes and the connections to the posts are mechanical attachments, rather than custom welded connections. The goose neck at the connection between the spiral rail and the balcony rail is custom fabricated on site.
This railing system combines stainless steel cables, steel posts and steel handrail. The posts are pre-drilled for the wire rope. Under tension, the thin lines are strong – yet open look.
This deck railing is made of round stainless steel tubing handrail and posts. The thin stainless steel wires almost disappear from a distance. Acadia stairs can custom make stainless steel railings for curved decks and stairs.
This is a very basic railing style. The pipe railing is welded to the posts on the angle of the stair. The posts can be round or square. The posts can be mounted by core-drilling into the concrete or we can use floor mounting feet for lags.
This shows a 2 line railing system. The top line is the hand rail itself. The lower line can be made at any height from just a fraction of an inch above the nose of the treads, to within a few inches of the hand rail (grab rail). Note the safety level-offs at both top and bottom are a recommended feature.
The 3 Line railing can have a much more aesthetic appeal and may be a requirement for some industrial applications. The 3 line rail ensures that the spacing is reduced for more safety, but it also adds rigidity to the railing system. The middle line can align with the level-offs for a cleaner look. The lower lines can be smaller dimension material than the top rail.
The panel railing system is a variation of a 2 line railing system. We can fabricate the railings with the clips welded in place, or you can apply your own hardware if you have special details for your panels. This system can be used with glass panels, metal panels or even canvas.
The horizontal line railing or sloping line rail pictured above shows a round top handrail with vertical bar lower lines. We recommend that the spacing between the lines be reduced to less than 4″. A wide variety of materials can be used for the lower lines from rounds, flats and squares and more.
Commercial codes may require a railing system to have vertical balusters with less than 4″ spacing, a guard rail at 42″ high and a handrail at 34″ to 36″ high. These codes often also require the railing have a level-portion of 12″ at the top and bottom of the stair for entry and exit.
Before & After picture of an exterior wrought iron railing painted white. We cold-galvanized the railing before priming & finish painting the rail with Rustoleum. The mounting feet are stainless steel and the hardware is galvanized.
