Forged handrail with stand-offs

The uniqueness of this forged and powder coated front step handrail is seen in the decorative and functional stand-offs.  Traditionally our handrails are mounted to the stairs, but this customer requested a handrail that would allow for easy snow removal.

The lead steel fabricator on this job designed the curved stand-offs making the functional-art aspect of this railing exactly what the customer was looking for–a very clean look and stairs free of any mounting hardware.
