Safe and aesthetic appeal metal railings for domestic properties

  • 20 Jun 2017

With stricter health and safety regulations and an increase in high-rise flats, university accommodation and office buildings, builders are being contracted more often to install more metal railings.

These commercial security regulations don’t always match guidelines for domestic properties, though. Therefore, more attention should be paid to domestic properties that require metal balcony railings to increase their safety.

While essential commercial buildings are entirely safe, KP Engineering focuses equal attention on domestic properties with high balconies and raised patios, ensuring they feature adequate metal railings, as a necessity, to ensure the safety of all who live there.

Metal balcony railings can also be featured in domestic homes for safety within your own property. They can have a range of uses, in both domestic and commercial properties, and essentially bring safety, security and a stylish aesthetic for a range of buildings.

Metal railings can be installed on patios, balconies, in gardens and on rooftops to make the space safer.

Metal balcony railings are a security feature, although they can still look good. You can consider custom made designs and sizing for your metal balcony railings whether you are a domestic or commercial customer. Homeowners may prefer a more decorative design or shorter balcony railings.

Mild steel is the preferred metal for metal balcony railings, although may sometimes be referred to as wrought-iron. Mild steel is essentially a modern alternative to wrought-iron that’s favoured by most in the industry. It is also a more affordable choice, but at the same time offers high-quality and offers a long lifetime.
