If you have a balcony at your property, you will naturally want to ensure that a railing securely protects it. While many materials such as brick, stone, and concrete block your view, the impact is significantly less with wrought iron balcony railings. At Gates Railing Direct, we have an extensive selection of designs and offer our customers the opportunity to create bespoke designs that reflect their tastes or personality.
As you can see in our gallery, we have supplied wrought iron balcony railings to various properties around the UK. We appreciate the importance of combining safety, durability and appearance, and this is one of the primary reasons we frequently advise our customers to look at the wrought options. It is a material that is durable and can withstand the elements, incredibly strong, providing safety and looks elegant and timeless for decades to come.
In compliance with Building Regulations all balcony railings must stand at a minimum height of 1100mm from the base to which they are installed.
We offer our customers 18 different styles of wrought iron balcony railings to match different budgets. These styles are:
- Select Range – Ealing Select, Kensington Select, Mayfair Select
- Standard Range – Kensington, Ealing, Flat Top, Handrail Top
- Contemporary Range – All styles
- Scrolled Range – All styles
Our designers are also available to work with you to create bespoke designs to create something unique for your property. We offer a blend of our existing designs or we can create something entirely new that oozes style and sophistication as well as reflecting your personality. Our standard ranges have remained remarkably similar since we began manufacturing wrought iron products over 30 years ago , and we believe that this demonstrates that wrought iron balcony railings are timeless and withstand changes in fashion.
Our wrought iron balcony railings are easy to attach to existing brick or stonework using industrial strength bolts to guarantee their security. Alternatively, posts can be fitted directly into concrete, which can, depending on the property’s design, give added peace of mind. Of course, we will always be happy to discuss all the options that are available and thanks to our years of experience and professionalism, we are able to overcome almost any challenge.
We would always recommend that our customers opt for hot dip galvanizing underneath a powder coated finish. Then, once installed; our wrought iron balcony railings will be incredibly easy to maintain. We recommend that you clean them periodically, especially clearing bird droppings, and they will stay looking as good as new for many years to come. Any scratches or marks can be touched up easily, and for this, we recommend using specialist metal paint such as Hammerite to provide long-lasting protection.
Benefits of Wrought Iron Balcony Railings
Wrought iron balcony railings manage to combine all the qualities of other materials into one. Unlike tempered glass, the material is durable and strong and does not restrict your view to the same degree as brick or stone. As the styles have remained consistent over the years, it can genuinely claim to be a classic, and the fact that you can get it in bespoke designs means that you have something unique. It requires little maintenance and represents excellent value for money, giving you satisfaction for years to come.
