Custom Metal Handrails in Sheffield

Enhancing Safety and Accessibility with Custom Metal Handrails in Sheffield

Navigating uneven garden steps can be a challenge, particularly for those with mobility issues or during ‘typically British’ weather. Recognizing the need for a safe and reliable solution, our recent project in Sheffield involved the supply and installation of top-quality galvanized and powder-coated metal handrails. These handrails were custom-designed to provide stability and support to both sides of a client's garden steps, ensuring a blend of functionality and aesthetic appeal.

Our client's garden featured a set of stone steps that, while charming, presented a significant safety hazard due to their uneven nature and lack of access rails. The irregular surface posed a challenge for a secure handrail installation, as traditional base plate fixings could lead to instability and misalignment. The goal was to create a handrail system that would not only be strong and durable but also complement the natural beauty of the garden.

To address these challenges, our team opted for a core-drill fixing method for the handrail posts. This technique involves drilling directly into the stone steps to create a precise and snug cavity where the posts can be anchored and concrete fixed. By using this method, we were able to bypass the uneven surface and secure the posts directly into the stone, ensuring the highest level of stability.

Our handrails are constructed from high-grade metal that has been galvanized to resist corrosion and weathering. After the galvanization process, the handrails were powder-coated, providing an additional layer of protection against the elements as well as a sleek, paint finished look that complements the garden's aesthetic and will last for decades without the need for repainting. 

The process began with a thorough site survey assessment and AutoCAD design drawing of the garden steps to determine the optimal placement and height of the posts and handrails. Once the measurements were taken, our skilled fabricators manufactured the rails and installation proceeded with the core-drilling method, taking great care to maintain the integrity of the stone and the surrounding environment.

The finished installation has transformed the garden steps into a safe and accessible pathway for our client. The metal handrails provide a sturdy and reliable grip, giving users the confidence to navigate the steps with ease. The galvanized and powder-coated finish ensures that the handrails will maintain their integrity and appearance for the long term, requiring minimal maintenance.
