Your Architectural Metalwork questions answered

    Feature Metalwork

    Catch the eye with stunning decorative features. Our bespoke work for feature metalwork is perfect for internal and external environments alike, helping you create a great first impression for your visitors.

    At Mercia, we work alongside lead designers and creatives to bring your visions to life; with the use of state-of-the-art machinery and an expert team on hand, we are confident in producing all types of architectural designs from metal.

    Staircases and Balustrades

    Whether looking for helical, spiral, elliptical, or a classic straight staircase, Mercia can work with any shape or configuration and a range of materials to create a robust, quality structure.

    Our helical staircases typically take on an elegant arc shape which creates a seamless flow to the next floor, making it ideal as a statement piece and focal point for public spaces and the retail sector.

    Conventional straight staircases can be manufactured using a variety of materials including glass and stainless-steel infills. These staircases are suitable for offices, train stations, shopping centres, residential apartment blocks and more.

    We also provide specialist design, manufacture and fitting services for fire escape stair systems; during these projects we work closely with you to provide the correct solution in line with current regulations. External fire escape stairs can be manufactured to compliment the architectural style of the building, ensuring they don’t look out of place, whilst still delivering a safe and accessible exit route for users.

    We have numerous handrail options available to complement our staircases, from classic timbers to clinical stainless steel for both internal and external applications.

    Alongside our bespoke staircases, we manufacture unique balustrades for the commercial and residential sectors. With expansive design capabilities performed in-house, we can provide:

    Structural glass

    Glass panel

    Stainless wire rope

    Intermediate rail

    Vertical mesh infill

    Perforated plate

    Bespoke materials

    Our frameless glass balustrades provide a contemporary look for surrounding interior spaces, allowing for undisrupted views throughout your interior spaces. Our long-lasting and low maintenance frameless glass balustrades are great for both commercial and residential buildings.

    We further use strengthened safety glass in our balustrading systems - meeting all current building standards for your total peace of mind.

    Our stainless wire rope balustrade is a popular alternative, offering quick and efficient manufacture due to the design of the cable system. Mercia’s stainless steel is suitable for external environments thanks to its extreme durability in all types of weather.


    Our complete range of bespoke balconies offer strength and durability alongside stunning designs.

    From simple Juliet window guards to complex, self-support ‘walkout’ fabrications and multi-storey stacks, our expert team works with true precision and an eye for detail across the design, manufacture, and installation processes of balconies.

    Our cantilever balconies and unique bespoke designs are made to your specifications, ensuring we deliver on our customers’ visions every time.

    Railings and Gates

    For the complete security of your residential and commercial property or premise, Mercia manufactures quality security railings, iron gates, and ornamental gates.

    Our high-security wrought iron railings and gates utilise heavy duty materials which are made-to-measure for a reliable and secure fit. The high standards we work to offer our customers ease in knowing their property is protected.

    We also provide decorative and ornamental railings and gates, for security structures which need to align with existing architecture and design aesthetics. If you’re looking to enhance the style of your property whilst still requiring the benefits of railings, Mercia’s ornamental railings are manufactured custom to your preferences. These railings are ideal for use on balconies and other raised platforms where some form of edge protection is required for health and safety.


    Our cladding services are available for the decoration and protection of your internal and external buildings. We have experience manufacturing cladding for all types of buildings including residential areas, train stations, shopping centres and other interior spaces.

    We work with a variety of materials including aluminium and stainless steel, with a range of finishes and colour palettes available.

    Our expert team offers guidance throughout the design stages, ensuring complete flexibility in our bespoke approach to meet all project requirements. We further offer installation on site for a complete service.
