How Can Our Stainless Steel Balustrades Help Your Project?

Steel is a fantastic material for your projects. Designed to not only be strong and long-lasting, they also create an aesthetically pleasing look for your designs. A balustrade is an important component in the construction of a staircase, landing, balcony or any other raised area where a barrier is needed to prevent falls.

There are several elements of stair structures that must work together to be successful; these include materials, handrail, and structural design integration. If you have a project in mind, our experts at Morgan Brothers have the solution for you.

Morgan Bros Successfully Meet Deadline Despite COVID Pandemic

The project to construct the biggest residential development outside London is coming to an end after a successful multi-year build.

The development, which is situated on Great Jackson Street in Manchester, includes over 6,300 residential apartments alongside restaurants, cafes and local convenience stores, and is widely considered a key component of the area’s regeneration.

The development will undoubtedly transform the skyline of Manchester City Centre and is part of a large-scale redevelopment of the area including several new high-rise buildings and thousands of apartments.

A successful working relationship between Morgan Bros and Renaker Build has been established for many years, with the Coppull-based metalwork specialists being a crucial component of the build on Great Jackson Street.

Mark Prendergast, the project manager from Morgan Bros, said; “Meeting deadlines efficiently and working effectively is part of the status quo for Morgan Bros, but our client was especially happy with the progress made by our team.

We manufactured and installed a bespoke steel staircase, various balustrade system, and an array of bespoke metalwork throughout the project. Taking notes from the architect to create a 3D design for our client to help them envisage how the result would look.

We worked on several phases of the development, manufacturing from our local workshop and using our in-house team to install.

Tom Morgan, one of the Directors from Morgan Bros, said; “Having worked with Renaker on previous projects it was a pleasure to continue the relationship and deliver on a such a large scale.

We proved that we could adapt and handle all requirements throughout the project and look forward to moving on to future projects.”

While Peter Cregeen from Renaker Build added: “We have used Morgan Brothers as our sole metal work supplier throughout the Deansgate Square development.

The works have ranged from multi million pound penthouse glass balustrades to a one off feature staircase in our leisure block through to the escape stair handrails. Coupled with this, they have supplied and installed large areas of external metal work (including a cantilevered deck above the River Medlock), gates and roof top structures and their business has coped with everything we have asked of them.

The service and quality is exceptional and with a suite of experienced operatives the install always happens in a logical and safe manner. The final ask of them for the scheme is a bespoke metal and timber balcony detail to our concierge space that not only is angled but runs down twin mid-spiral staircases.

I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them for future work or projects.”

Advantages of Using Stainless Steel

There’s many reasons stainless steel is one of the world’s most versatile and most valuable materials. Not only is this popular material beautiful, it also boast extreme strength making it a perfect choice for all conditions.

If you’re wondering which material is the best for you, consider stainless steel. Here are just a few of the benefits of this metal.

Hygiene and Cleanliness

Stainless steel is one of the most hygienic materials around. It’s incredibly easy to clean and maintain, simply wipe with an all-purpose cleaner and a quick polish to make it shine and look as good as new. 

This low maintenance material is a perfect choice for hospitals, kitchens, and other cleanliness areas.

Aesthetically Pleasing

Stainless steel is sleek with both classic and modern touches; a factor which has made this material incredibly popular for both residential and commercial properties. Its beauty creates a stunningly unique feature which works well with a plethora of design options.  

Highly Durable

Stainless steel is very tough, and even lightweight stainless steel won’t buckle under great weight, making it one of the most durable metals on the market. It can endure weight, hot and cold temperatures as well as extreme weather conditional, making it practical for all year round.

Resistance

Did you know that stainless steel is corrosion resistant? It’s strong against corrosion, rust, water stains and much more! For anywhere with temperature and pressure extremes, this material would be perfect to withstand these conditions.

Chrome is added to stainless steel to fabricate it, which joins with oxygen in the air to create a film over the metal. This film repairs itself quickly when it is damaged, allowing the metal to resist corrosion and rust. The addition of other elements like nickel, titanium, and molybdenum enhances stainless steel’s corrosion-resistant properties even more.

What Is Metalworking?

A common question in the architectural industry, metalworking is the process of working with metals to create individual parts, assemblies, or large-scale structures. There are many ways of shaping metal, including machining, forging, casting, and fabricating.

Did you know humans have been working metal for nearly 7000 years? Metalworking covers a huge variety of work across multiple industries and sectors, find out all you need to know about the metalworking process.

Common Metalworking Processes

As metalworking is used to a diverse level, it includes a wide range of skills, processes and tools.  Most commonly, metalworking is divided into the following three categories:

  • Cutting: a collection of processes where material is brought to a specified shape by removing excess using various kinds of tooling
  • Forming: modifying metal by deforming it i.e. forming does not remove any metal.  Forming is done with a system of mechanical forces and, especially for bulk metal forming, with heat
  • Joining: bringing two or more pieces of metal together by way of one or more different processes which include welding, brazing and soldering.

Common Tools

There are a variety of commonly used metalworking tools ranging from the) hammer and anvil through to complex tools including Fibre Lasers, punch presses, Salvagnini P4 panel benders, Amada Press Breaks and, MIG and TIG welding equipment. Here at Morgan Brothers, we purchase modern day machinery to enhance our services now including a complete glass production and powder coating service.
