Our rails are not ‘bent’ or forced into these wonderful shapes. They are not just miter cut box sections. Each rail is made of 4 patterns: top, bottom, left and right, cut to it’s unique profile, hand assembled in a dedicated fixture and welded in the final shape needed. This ensures that the metal profile is not stretched, weakened or wrinkled which creates fatigue and can lead to component failure.

Partners in Perfection.
