Commercial Gallery

For a commercial restaurant, hotel, or banquet facility, Compass Ironworks can create architectural stairs, contemporary stairs, even glass stairs, as well as safety railings, ornamental railings, and privacy fences, to meet the specific design sensibilities of any commercial project. Our attention to detail and high-quality, powder-coat finish make Compass a perfect fit for an upscale commercial establishment. The dedication from the team for on-time completion is a phenomenal asset to contractors that have rigid timeframes for completion. For exterior bar areas, when aluminum fence is needed for grand staircases, Compass Ironworks has the expertise and knowledge to deliver.

We are well versed in working with various metals that accentuate spatial design, so that the specific hue of a bronze terrace railing is in harmony with its surroundings, or a brushed stainless stair railing enhances the visual impact of well-executed design.

When the Bellevue Hotel was built in Philadelphia in the early 1900s, 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."



A banquet hall in New Jersey wanted to appeal to a more sophisticated client base. The design team determined a wrought iron railing would add elegance and beauty to each wedding or corporate event. There were some budgetary 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. The result was a breathtaking ornamental railing.
