When you walk up and down the stairs at your office or your apartment complex, you likely automatically grab the handrails to assist you in your ascent or descent. It is a natural motion, grabbing the handrails to steady your climb. When you do this, you might not consciously think about all the work that has gone into creating these handrails. You might not consider all the hard work and craftsmanship that went into those handrails. Indeed, creating hand rails for building can be a big part and an important part of the work of a metal working team. Whether purely functional or decorative, handrail manufacturing is a big part of the work of metal fabrication teams, and the process of crafting and designing that perfectly crafted custom welding handrail project takes more than you might imagine.

When creating handrails, a craftsman must be cognizant of more than just the simple mechanics of the thing. They must also be aware of the space, the dimensions, and the look and feel of the handrails within the space. There are designs that work for different types of spaces, and knowing which will look best in which space is a huge part of the design process. For example, a massive wrought iron staircase would look out of place at a walk up. Knowing the space and the appropriate metal and materials with which to create the ideal look and feel is key for something as functional and important to everyday life as a handrail. Handrails are definitely the types of pieces that are easy to notice when they are off; the best handrails are the ones that quietly blend in, assimilating into the mood and the ambience and design of the space as a whole.
When having a custom handrail designed, you’ll want to consider some important details. For example, are you looking for a handrail that also has a gate or is split into multiple sections? Will there be special designs worked into the hand rails or will you be in need of simple bars? In addition, coating the handrails with the appropriate material can add to the look and the feel of that space. For example, will you need to have the handrail painted? Or should the coating be a powder coating? There are a lot of options, so having a great welder by your side to assess and help you make these decisions can help ensure that the handrails that are installed are ones that you will be able to rely on as part of the decor of your space.
