About Ornamental metal work installation

For hundreds of years, ornamental iron work for curved staircases was fabricated on site.

The owners of this country house wanted a handcrafted iron rail for their imposing staircase. But they didn’t want any welding and grinding to mess up their interior work that was nearly complete. Custom Iron was able to supply a hand forge iron rail that was custom made in their factory by supplying individual panels instead of the traditional continuous rail. Aaron Stadsvold explains how that ornamental metal fabricators at Custom Iron combines sophisticated engineering with traditional 19th century metalsmithing. Aaron: With these panel system we’ve developed a way for the local trim and carve it easily install this handcrafted iron work on their staircases. They send us in their specification and our skilled engineers convert those in the cad drawings. We work through the details with the carpenter on site. And when the panel show up, they are ready to be installed. Michael: Using the shop drawings and templates included with the hard work kit. The installers begin by locating, verifying and drilling mounting holes in the landing tread and stair stringers.
