Metal railings have long been a popular choice for both residential and commercial properties. Not only can they enhance the security of a building, but they can also add a touch of elegance, especially when they come in a modern, ornate design. At RTC Fencing, we regularly install stylish and durable metal railings in Nottingham and the surrounding areas. Read on to discover the many benefits of metal railings.

Enhanced security 

Metal railings can enhance the security of your property, acting as a physical barrier to deter and prevent unauthorised access. Whether they’re installed around a residential garden or commercial premises, metal railings make it much like likely that intruders will be able to get into your property. They can provide you with peace of mind that your property, assets, and people are safe and secure.

Impressive durability 

Vertical bar Railings in Leicester Metal railings are incredibly durable, making them capable of lasting decades before they need replacing. They can withstand the test of time and the effects of the elements. Rain, wind and UV rays will have minimal impact on their appearance and performance. You can expect your metal railings to stay in great condition for many years to come, making them a fantastic long-term investment. 

Low maintenance

Metal railings are very low maintenance. Unlike wood fencing, which can require frequent painting, staining or sealing to keep it in good shape, metal railings generally only need occasional cleaning to remove any debris or dust. This low-maintenance requirement saves you both time and money whilst keeping your property looking its best. 

Various design options

One of the biggest benefits of our metal railings is that they come in various designs to suit your preferences. They come in different architectural styles ranging from classic and ornate to modern and minimalist. Whether you’re looking for railings with sleek, straight lines or intricate detail, they can be customised to match your vision. You can rest assured that your new metal railings will enhance the appearance of your property wonderfully.  


Metal railings are a very eco-friendly choice since most metals are recyclable.  Many metals used in railings, such as steel or aluminium can be recycled and reused at the end of their useful life. This not only reduces the demand for new raw materials but also the energy required for production. Metal railings are known for their long lifespan due to their durability, which means they don’t need to be replaced as often as some other materials. This reduces the overall environmental impact associated with the production and disposal of fencing. 

Add value to your property

The installation of metal railings may add value to your property. Potential buyers often appreciate the visual appeal and added security that they can bring, making your home more attractive on the property market. Keep in mind that metal railings are only likely to increase your home’s value if they’re constructed, installed and maintained to a high standard. Hiring the services of a reputable fencing contractor can ensure that your fencing turns out to be a worthy investment.
