At Stairs Gates Railings we understand the importance of a quality finish. If you get the wrong finish it can not only lead to a railing or gate with a poor look to it, but in some cases it can lead to a weaker product. Finishes can have an effect on corrosion, durability, and how easy it is for the item to be scratched up. It’s important to understand these differences along with the pros and cons of each finish.
Without the perfect finishing, even the best fabrication job can fall flat. Stairs Gates Railings will work with you to make sure that your job is safe, sturdy, and adds just the right amount of personal touch to your indoor or outdoor space when it comes to our high quality metal finishing services. After working with you to make the design perfect, we will consult with you to put on the finishing touches. Choose from sleek and polished, to a rugged steel, or the many finishing that we have available:
- Mill and Polished Finishes: Aluminum and Stainless Steel
- Brushed Nickel Plating: Stainless Steel
- Primed, Electrostatic Paint, and Powder Coat: Steel, Aluminum & Cast Iron
- Hot Dipped Galvanized: Steel
Mill and Polished Finishes: Aluminum and Stainless Steel
Our cleanly polished stainless steel and aluminum finishes are perfect for a sleek and futuristic look. The mill finish is a bright and cold-rolled finish that resembles a hazy piece of glass or mirror. It is perfect to be used just as is and is ideal for outdoor railings or gates. Mill and polished finishes do not usually come with a protective coating. This finish may show marks from handling and shearing for a rugged steel outdoor finish.
That ruggish outdoor look is perfect for anyone that wants something very natural. The downside of this kind of finish is that it will typically scratch and/or get nicked fairly easily. It can happen even during installation, but at the same time this is a big part of the appeal of this finish for railings. You want a natural look and something that isn’t going to be too costly. At the end of the day having something cost effective that is also sturdy is key for something like an outdoor railing.
Whether you should go with steel or aluminum will really depend on the exact project and preferred taste. If you want something that is going to shine a little more than aluminum is what you should look into, but if you want something more subtle and rugged as a finish then stainless steel might be the better option.
If you’re still unsure then you can always call us at Stairs Gates Railings. We know the best finish or any situation and can help you pick out that perfect finish for your project. Not only are we experts in installing finishes, but we have an understanding of what will look good on a project thanks to years of experience.
Brushed Nickel Plating:
This bright finish features a directional grain that will point in one direction. This textured look prevents a reflection like looking in a mirror. This sleek finish is found mostly in kitchen appliances and can bring a sophisticated indoor or outdoor look to your staircase, railing, or gate.
A benefit of nickel plating is that it helps prevent corrosion and in some cases can even make the material it’s being brushed on stronger. These extra comparisons of course pale in comparison to the aesthetic differences that nickel plating will bring to anything it’s brushed on to.
Nickel plating, depending on the chemicals used, can create an effect of brightness or shine which is why it is found on a lot of kitchen appliances and utensils. That shiny look your dishes get after they’ve been washed? That is thanks to the nickel plating.
Nickel plating is also a great cost effective option for most projects. If you’re looking for a finish that looks good and traditionally will not break the bank then going with a brushed nickel plating finish may be what you’re after. Contact us for more info.
Primed, Electrostatic Paint and Powder Coat: Steel, Aluminum & Cast Iron:
Electrostatic painting and powder coating is a process in which the positively charged paint attracts and bonds with the negatively charged metal surface. This magnet effect allows the paint to cover all sides of your product for a perfect coat of paint. Count on this process for a very high quality finish, in glossy, satin, and flat. This is the most desired finishing that can be found on a majority of factory manufactured finished goods. These results cannot be obtained by regular spray or hand painting application, its the most durable coat of paint for your steel, aluminum or cast iron. This option allows you to customize your finishing to suit your any need with whichever color best fits your space. Best of all, the firmly bonded paint adds an extra layer of protection. This additional layer prevents corrosion, and will increase the lifespan of your product.
Hot Dipped Galvanized: Steel
Hot dipped galvanization is the process in which our iron or steel product is coated in zinc. The zinc alloys with the base metal in order to protect the steel or iron underneath. This application is widely used to prevent corrosion and will save you money by adding to the life cycle of your product. It is the safest method to get the most life out of your outdoor stairs, railings or gates.
After your job is designed, we will consult with you to ensure your job has nothing but the correct finishing touches. Whether you are looking for a sturdy and rugged outdoor look, or sleek and elegant Stainless Steel for indoors, we will help you to choose the best option to suit your personal style and is ideal for your space. In fact, we’ll even add that finishing touch to someone else’s product! Stairs Gates and Railings offers finishing for any product whether it is ours or not.
