Spiral Stair:

Spiral stair cases are typically used when space is limited and can be used for either indoor or outdoor spaces. Some folks may choose a spiral just because they love the way they look. You have to agree, they are fun. Our talented fabricators construct the spirals in our shop using a variety of steel materials. Wood treads can be added by another contractor after installation if you prefer wood. All of it comes together in one continuous welded structure. The finished spiral may get sent out for galvanizing before we apply the final paint finish, if itís an exterior staircase. At installation, we use a crane to position them as close to their final destination as possible, but then we need several men to move it into position.

Choosing A Design:

We have a very large gallery of iron step rail and gate designs, so it can get confusing to pick your favorite with so many choices. You can never go wrong with this design for a handrail or gate especially for a St. Louis home. St. Louisís French Catholic history make the fleur de lis a popular motif, originating in France, its shape is a stylized lily representing the holy trinity. It came to later represent perfection, purity and light.Ē You donít have to know the history of the Fleur de lis to appreciate its use as an ornament on iron fences, iron gates and more.

Custom Steel Hood:

This customer hired a professional faux painter to give their wood oven hood an iron-like paint finish. In this project we only fabricated and installed the steel straps by hot hammering the steel to texturize it. We clear coated the steel and added decorative steel rivets to the straps to give it an old world look. We can also build the entire oven hood from steel. A steel hood can be finished with a transparent patina in a color of your choice, typically itís a rubbed bronze color, antiqued copper, darkened grey steel or just a clear coat over the original steel color. All patinas will show the natural steel surface, the texture of the steel as it comes from the mill and all welds will be visible, because patinas are transparent. Or hire a faux painter to create their own surface effect per your instructions.

Custom Fire-Screen:

This client found a fire-screen they loved but the size was not correct so they shared a photo of it with us. We were able to recreate a similar design. These photos show the beautiful fire-screen we forged that is sized perfectly for their fireplace opening. After fabrication, the customer hired a painter to embellish the iron with a bronze paint, gold leaf and an antique effect to the screen backing. Mark of Mark Tillman Walls did a great job painting this custom finish. Note: Fire-screens are normally painted with a black high-heat paint. This customer has a gas fire and the screen will not set close to the heat therefore they feel the faux paint will hold up to the indirect heat.

Custom Railing with Logo Design:

This railing incorporates a custom logo for a family farm. The customer drew their own artwork for the logo which we translated into a CAD file so it could be digitally transferred for laser cutting at a local company. A few years ago we did an entrance sign for the farm with this logo. They liked it so much, we have made a railing for their farmhouse with the same artwork. It incorporated both wrought iron and stainless steel detailing. Itís exciting to work on projects in which the customer has a clear vision and has participated in creating the design. The final result means so much more to them and their family.

Custom Fire Place Doors:

This customer had a custom stone fireplace opening that was difficult to find a pre-made set of doors for, in the size they needed. Classic Metal Craft can fabricate custom fireplace doors for you just like we did here. Or maybe you just need a free standing fire-screen for an arched opening to match the size and shape of your fireplace.

Custom Iron Gate for Cemetery

St. Martins Cemetery Sign:

Our customer, St. Martin’s Cemetery, had a very old photo of a sign that used to grace the entrance of the cemetery. At some point the sign was taken down and discarded, possibly because it was in such bad disrepair. This new sign we fabricated for the cemetery is a replica to closely match the photo, and the customer is extremely happy to have the sign back in place looking like it did 100 years ago.

Tall Grass Railing - Iron Stair Rail  

Tall Grass Railing:

This railing design is made to resemble tall grass and is an interesting way to bring design elements into your home to make it reflect your unique style.

A railing like this is never made exactly the same way twice as the fabricator has much artistic license when creating the bends and off-shoots as he thinks it should look. The customer has to be open to variations from one rail to the next as all are custom made by hand here in
St. Louis.
