BRASS BALUSTRADE FOR A PRIVATE RESIDENCE
Our workshop really made the grade with the balustrade and handrail we had to manufacture for this project.
Our workshop truly excelled in crafting the balustrade and handrail for this project, showcasing our dedication to precision and craftsmanship.
The production of the intricately shaped, lightweight spindles was a laborious process that demanded great attention to detail. Initially, the spindle bars were meticulously heated and expertly bent to achieve their unique forms. The next step involved mechanically joining these spindles at precise angles, employing specially designed conductors to ensure accuracy.
However, the true challenge lay in the handrail joints, where the horizontal and inclined sections converged. Each twist and turn of the handrail was a masterpiece in its own right. The complexity of the handrail surface twists proved too intricate to be calculated in advance by our engineers. As a result, this intricate work of art had to be executed manually on-site, effectively transforming the handrail into a piece of sculpted beauty.
To add a touch of elegance, the brass components underwent a meticulous satin finishing process, followed by a wax treatment to enhance their appearance and durability. The end result was not just a functional balustrade and handrail but a testament to our commitment to craftsmanship and the artistry of metalwork.
The intricately shaped, light and delicate spindles required a long production process. First the spindle bars were heated, then bent, then joined mechanically at an angle with the aid of specially prepared conductors. The hardest part were the handrail joints where the horizontal and inclined sections met. Every handrail twist is a real work of art. Our engineers found it impossible to work out the tortuous geometry of handrail surface twists in advance, so they did this work manually onsite, basically creating pieces of sculpture. The brass parts were satin finished and waxed.
