Marry your balustrade, balcony, or staircase with a beautifully designed bespoke handrail.
Arc Metal’s bespoke work means we can design and fabricate all types of handrails, from balustrade handrails to wall mounted stair rails. We can design flat, round, curved, and convex handrails to suit all design preferences and architectural spaces.
Our handrails can be used for both indoor and outdoor applications, with Arc Metal working with a range of materials including stainless steel, steel, aluminium, and brass. We can further offer oak handrails to finish your staircase or balustrade through established industry connections, ensuring we use high quality materials which are locally sourced.
Arc Metal’s handrails can be fabricated in accordance with your preferences, with several finishes available. Depending on the type of handrail selected, finishes include galvanised powder coated for industrial or external use, standard mirror polished metal finish, and plastic coated, typically used for commercial applications. Our team can guide you through the design process, to ensure you receive a product which meets both design and performance requirements.
We offer a full turnkey service, meaning you don’t have to worry about a thing! Our team will take care of all stages - including design, fabrication and installation of your handrail. Whether you’re looking for a handrail, or the complete set including a staircase, balustrade and/ or balcony, Arc Metal takes on projects of all sizes across the UK.
We value the transparency of our services, upheld by constant communication with our customers, and always aim for total customer satisfaction in all that we do.
What are the regulations for handrails in the UK? Arc Metal always adheres to the latest industry regulations whilst fabricating and installing handrails. There are regulations surrounding handrails which must be adhered to in order to help keep people safe.
Regulations advise handrails should be fitted between 900mm-1000mm from the floor or the pitch line of the stairs. A staircase must have a handrail wherever there's a drop of more than 600mm (typically, this is two steps on traditional staircases); staircases more than 1 metre in width require a handrail either side.
For wall mounted handrails, the handrail must be installed 75mm from the wall so that users can grip it fully.
“Would like to say a massive thank you to Paul and Mark for a fantastic job they did replacing an old wooden picket fence with glass balustrade and handrail in our garden. This was not a straightforward job and they listened to our needs. They were professional and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. We are so pleased that we chose this company and cannot recommend them enough."
“We struggled to find anyone to fit our balcony / balustrade for 4 years, as it was not a straightforward job. Paul and Mark took the time to find out what we needed / wanted and came over to look at the job. They were professional, friendly and not pushy. Their main concern was to ensure that they could do a quality job, that fitted within our budget and which complied with all the necessary regulations. What we now have is a fantastic new balustrade. Great job gents."
“We've had Juliet balcony installed and we are very happy with all the work Mark and Paul did for us. Mark and Paul are very friendly and knowledgeable. Good service and good contact from start to finish. Myself, my husband and our dog are three very happy customers. Highly recommended. Thank you."
