Architectural Metalwork in Mild, Galvanised and Stainless Steel
Steel is an excellent material for architectural purposes, providing strength and practicality and, where required, elegance and style.
BS Steels can design, fabricate and install all forms of steel staircases, balustrades and railings.
On this page we feature several different styles. The two spiral staircases, one in gleaming stainless steel, one in mild steel with granite treads, were installed in a mixed retail and residential project in Shoreditch, London. Our design capabilities were an essential part of this project, the architectural concepts being taken taken forward into detailed 3D drawings by our own technical staff. We feature also the stainless steel balustrade on the roof terrace of this property.
For a redevelopment in Tunbridge Wells we created railings and steel frames for timber decks, as well as full height columns to hold the structures together. Also aluminium drip trays linked to downpipes to enable residents to water plants on their balconies! The overall look was specified by the clients to replicate existing buildings in their ownership.
At the other end of the scale is the railway bridge parapet at Hackney, London. Here we built and installed the skeleton structure, consisting of SHS Galvanised Posts and RHS Galvanised rails. We then clad the skeleton to both sides with 6mm mild steel plates, powder coated to protect from vandals and graffiti.
The banister railings and handrails installed at the offices of Unite in Portsmouth, are an example of a quite traditional design, seen in offices, schools, hospitals and other institutions.
Steel is often used for stairs providing outside access and fire escapes. BS Steels designed, fabricated and installed the featured example at the Greig City Academy, Hornsey.
