For exterior bar areas, when aluminum fence is needed to grand staircases that need opulent backdrops for photos of an exceptional wedding party, Compass Ironworks has the expertise and knowledge to deliver.

We are well versed in working with various metals to accentuate the spatial design so that the specific hue of bronze terrace railing is in peace and harmony with its surroundings. Or a brushed stainless stair railing can enhance the visual impact of well executed design.

When the Belview Hotel was built in Philadelphia in the early 1900's, they designed a very elaborate staircase railing for the main foyer. This attracted phenomenal raves from local patrons, one businessman remarked to his colleague. "Visiting Philadelphia and not visiting the Bellevue is like going to Egypt and not seeing the Pyramids."



In this case study, a banquet hall in New Jersey wanted to appeal to a more sophisticated client base. The design team determined an iron railing would add elegance and beauty to achieve the level of ambiance for each wedding or corporate event. There were some budget constraints, but the project was value engineered for maximum visual impact. A certain number of scrolls, leaves and flowers were hand forged and custom created, with some of the more tedious design elements machine done.
