Something Old, Something New!

An old car lot can look new! See for yourself how this PA used car lot revamped their curb appeal with just one custom rail!

This car lot was undergoing an expansion adding additional showrooms to their site. They needed Iron railings to meet code requirements, as well as boost their visual appeal! The two area that needed railings were the ramp for the main showroom entrance, and the handicap ramp.

We aren’t just about the looks around here though! Instead of using traditional Iron railing material, we utilized high grade aluminum material. This allows for rust-resistance and very low maintenance of the railings! The main ramp railing structure was 1  5/8” outside diameter with solid aluminum 5/8” round railing pickets.

To add a custom special touch to the rails we created an oval with the logo: a truck silhouette, inside it. This silhouette was laser-cut and welded into place in the center of the front railing. See how it turned out in the picture below!

Another unique challenge for this project was that the main showroom ramp was utilized to take cars in and out of the showroom. The main showroom doors had to open a full 90 degrees to allow enough room for a car to pass. So, we came up with a  solution that  mechanically fastened the post’s base to the concrete. This allowed us to offset the railing on either side of ramp. The entire commercial railing project was powder-coated a beautiful warm hue of statuary bronze that really enhanced the front impression of this business in southeastern PA. Now you can go see it and enjoy the beauty of this new rail in an old car for years to come!
