Custom Metal Railings
Oftentimes, as we are working on a custom metal modern or contemporary staircase, clients ask if we are able to fabricate a custom railing to match. The answer is always yes! We are always happy to fabricate the items needed to complete your desired staircase look.
Types of Railings
Here are a few types of metal railings that we have worked on in the past:

Metal Railing Examples
From modern and contemporary to a more traditional style, your railing options are almost endless. Our team works with you to understand your vision and create a cohesive railing design that completes the look of your staircase and works for your space. We’ve constructed a few 3D renderings to showcase the variety of styles you can choose from when planning your railing. Have something else in mind? We’re all ears—give us a call at 845-765-8600 to chat about your idea and how we can make it happen.
Basic Railing System
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.
Two Line Railing System
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
Three Line Railing System
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.
Panel Railing System
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.
Horizontal Line Railing System
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 Railing System
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.
Below is a sampling 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 that you are looking for, just email us your inspiration picture or sketch and we will be happy to consult with you on design and pricing.
