Wrought Iron Railings: Why are they so popular?

Wrought iron railings are one of our favorite handrail design options to highlight. Simply put, they are a true work of art.  As discussed in our previous blog, wrought iron railings are hand-welded ornamental metal systems, crafted to be paired with curved and straight staircases. The handrail systems are designed by our industry-leading team, fabricated in our state-of-the-art metal facility by skilled artisan welders, and finished with powder coating to withstand the test of time.

Each wrought iron rail handrail is custom made specifically for the coordinating staircase. The designs range from minimalist to elaborate, but the process remains simple: design, weld, finish, and install.

Today, we explore the reasons behind the growing popularity of wrought iron stair railings and how they have grown to become one of our most popular product offerings.

Safety First

As with any staircase, the primary function of a handrail system is safety. Built with careful, precise measurement and high quality construction, a wrought iron handrail system offers a striking aesthetic appeal while also ensuring:

  • Durability, meeting all safety requirements
  • Ability to support weight against the railing from any angle
  • Code compliance for vertical heights and horizontal spacing

Rising Popularity of Wrought Iron Railings

Why is this handrail product so popular? Wrought iron stair railings are timeless, lending a sophisticated style and welcoming appeal. Along with timeless beauty, wrought iron also offers a great deal of versatility. Durable and suitable for exterior use, these railing systems can create an artistic upgrade for interior stairs in both commercial and residential spaces.

From traditional to industrial and rustic to whimsical, custom wrought iron railings can be designed and built to fit any space. This high level of versatility has led to a great rise in popularity in recent years.
