          ** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Until now, installing horizontal bar railing in your home or office required onside welding and fabrication. The real trick, however, was the quality of the onsite "finishing" of those welds. Our newest railing system changes all that! It is a component-based horizontal bar rail system that is fabricated in its entirety at our factory. We help you design the system; we create all the installation drawing and we do the welding, fabricating, and Yes, the finishing. Installation is quick and easy - requiring a few simple hand tools.
