What our customers say

Miss B.

Smart Steels were great from start to finish! We were on the hunt for some bespoke front garden railings and their expert advice helped us choose railings which have completely transformed our little patch of green out front.

Mr W.
I wasn’t wholly convinced that iron railings would suit my garden but decided to pursue some quotes anyway. After a consultation with Smart Steels and seeing the drawings they provided, I was fully convinced that their expert craftsmanship was right for my home.

Mrs S.
My old railings were in dire need of replacement. Smart Steels were professional and handled the redesign in a flash. They made the process much simpler than I ever could have imagined and gave me full control over how the finished product was going to look.

Case Studies

The Veranda Railings

The Project: We have clients reaching out to us from all across the London area, and one customer from Putney recently contacted us with an interesting project. They needed railings for their rooftop veranda for safety reasons; to stop the possibility of anyone falling over the edge. This sounded like something which was simple enough but also came with several complications we were more than happy to tackle.

The first was that the edge of this veranda was in fact curved instead of straight, so any railing we installed would need to match these contours of the building. They also wanted something which would be in keeping with the style of the building to help create a veranda which was stylish and cohesive with the building it was a part of.

The Solution: When we first attended the site, we measured the area around the veranda carefully and took solid templates to give us a full exterior profile to work with. In the design studio, we were able to come up with a simple yet elegant design which the client loved.
With their approval, we moved into production. The curved templates were brought to our workshop and used to create each panel for the railing. When the panels were sent to the site for installation, we had a 100% match on all the shapes and curves of the veranda.
The client was thrilled with the final result and we could congratulate ourselves on efficiently pulling off such a complex job.

FAQs

Do you provide bespoke garden railings?

Yes, we can provide railings to fit any size or shape of the site you might choose. Whether you are on the hunt for unique garden railings made to measure or a more classic approach, we will be able to put together a design you are sure to love. We handle every step of our process from the initial consultation to the final fit.

Do you supply railings for trade customers?

Yes, if you are an architect or landscaper searching for garden railings for a client, we will be able to help you find the perfect decorative railing for your project. In addition to the manufacture of the railings, we can also fit the railings ourselves or we can provide everything your builder might need to successfully install our railings.

Do you offer a measuring service?

Yes, we offer a full survey as part of our services. We will come to the property and conduct full measurements to ensure that we know of any issues which could affect the railings. You can be certain that we will able to accommodate for any change or peculiarity in your garden thanks to these measurements.

What about plans?

When we have agreed on a rough style and vision for your garden railings design, it will be time for our designers to work their magic. They will provide full AutoCAD drawings so you can know exactly what to expect when the railings are complete. These drawings can be altered if there is anything about the design you wish to change.

What range of colour and finishes do you offer?

We offer a variety of finishes for our metal railings. Our most basic finish is primed mild steel which has gone through a process to make it more resistant to excess moisture; handy in the UK! You can also opt for an additional hot dip galvanised finish with molten zinc. This is an extra layer of protection which could help to prevent rust on your railings for a minimum of 25 years.

We also have several ways you can choose to colour your railings whether you want to opt for a traditional black or something a bit brighter. Our first option is a spray paint with any of the standard RAL colours. The second is available if you opt for the galvanising route, where the metal is magnetised and then sprayed with coloured dust to create a special smooth coating of colour.

What is the standard time scale?

We have a time scale we like to follow for orders but this can obviously be adapted depending on your own schedule. Once we have received your deposit and your initial brief, we aim to have come to survey your property within two days. After a week, we hope to have put together your AutoCAD drawings for your approval.

Manufacture of your iron wall railings will begin once you are satisfied with the design and this stage should take approximately two weeks. If you do choose to opt for a specialised treatment such as galvanisation, this will take an additional 7-14 days to complete before your railings can be sent out for installation.

If this timeframe is too long for you, there are several things we can do to turn the project around faster. For example, you can often expect faster results if you do not need any AutoCAD drawings.

What are your payment terms?

We find it best to complete our jobs through a deposit scheme. When you contact us with a project in mind, we will begin work on the job once you have paid a deposit. When the work is complete, we will expect the rest of the invoice to be paid.

For supply only jobs, where we are simply designing the gates with a view that another party like a builder will install the railings, we require a deposit of 50%.

For more labour-intensive jobs, where we will be handling every aspect of the project from design until completion, we require a deposit of 40%.

These pricing structures are not entirely set in stone. For specific iron railings prices, you should get in touch now for a quote.

What if my garden is sloped?

If you happen to have a garden which is sloped, this is no issue whatsoever! We will measure the gradient of your land and come up with a solution so you can still get high-quality railings for your property.

The same can be said for curved walls. We have ways of measuring and recording the curvature of any walls we may have to deal with. This means that you can rest easy knowing that the panels we are constructing are going to curve at exactly the same angle as your walls for an overall seamless transition.

What if I don’t have a wall to fit garden railings to?

It does not matter if you do not have an existing wall that we can fit your garden railings to. As part of our installation service, we can provide posts for the railings or can even fit in concrete if needed. No matter what situation you are presenting us with in your garden, we are confident that we will be able to fit your railings.

Why Choose Iron Garden Railings?

There are many reasons why one might choose to install iron garden railings in their land. The first is obviously for the added security they will bring you. Many people choose to install gates and fences such as railings as safety measures since they act as deterrents against intruders. With the right combination of a good-quality fence like an iron railing plus other safety measurements, you will know that your property is a little safer.

Another added benefit of railings is that they help to provide a clear boundary of your property. Check with your local council before you plan to install a railing so you can be certain that you are building on your own land. Having this precise demarcation is extremely important for a number of reasons, such as dealing with neighbourly border disputes. 

If you are wanting a clear way to mark out your garden, you should definitely consider a railing. Finally, you should consider installing a railing over a fence or regular wall as it is fantastic when it comes to landscaping your garden. You could select something a little more traditional if you are trying to create an English country garden, such as ball top metal railings, or you could pick something bespoke and completely unique for a more modern space. 

Railings also make an excellent base for plant life. If you are searching for the perfect base to train a hedge or some other climbing plant up, railings will provide sturdy support.
They truly are an elegant design choice and will fit brilliantly into any home and any style aesthetic.
