This metal railing for stairs is the perfect design to create an open, light, and airy feel for an enclosed stairwell. Tony B. from Philadelphia wanted to upgrade his home and modernize the property with a beautiful cable railing. He chose Rainier, a prefabricated custom railing system by AGS Stainless, and it looks gorgeous. He was so happy with the customer service he received and the finished railing installation that he wrote a testimonial.
“Bob and the entire staff at AGS Stainless are true professionals. From conception to design and fabrication, the process was handled with extreme efficiency. The final product is better than we could have ever imagined. Thank you, AGS!” Tony B, PA
Thank you so much, Tony. We appreciate your review and kind words!
Saddle Mount Metal Stair Railing Posts
AGS Stainless is a custom railing manufacturer. When standard railing components aren’t suitable, it’s common for clients to request one-off railing posts or parts to accommodate a unique situation. When it comes to a handrail design, a few made-to-measure pieces can make all the difference.
Our team worked with Tony to determine the best solution for his railing project and to create the look he desired. The finished result is beautiful and vastly impacts the home’s overall look.
Other stair railing designs could easily create a boxed-in feel on the U-shaped staircase. Cable is one of the top railing ideas for basements and switchback stairs because it doesn’t block precious natural light.
