In addition to decorative metal,Our range of products includes architectural features such as staircases, stainless steel balustrading, cladding, building facades, metal finishes and any other unique projects you can imagine.
We create feature staircases, immersing ourselves in the project from concept to completion.
We are involved from design development through to installation, using our experience and know-how to solve complex design issues and achieve your desired outcome.
We do most of the manufacturing in our factory, in order to meet quality controls and ensure the best planning and the greatest access to the project, before assembling and installing the product on-site.
As well as creating unique decorative metal designs, we also clad elements such as walls, columns, canopies, lift surrounds and feature walls in a variety of metallic materials, with your choice of finish.
Our materials are laminated to a variety of substrates prior to installation to ensure they are able to withstand extremes of heat and impact.
Some applications, like splashbacks, require a special heat resistant board to comply with BCA requirements, while others need rigidity and impact resistance.
