Craftsmen in Metal

Established 1943


DESIGN & Installation

AWJ specialise in the design and installation of architectural and secondary metalwork including steel staircases.


Staircases are designed bespoke with early consideration given to the installation methods to best decide if the stairs are fabricated in welded units lifted in with a crane or bolt together stringers and treads where a crane cannot be used. 

Flexible Solutions

Consideration is given to programme requirements which may dictate the finishes such as if the stairs are required early in a project to provide site access, these can be primed  to receive site decoration at a more suitable time. Or stairs can be finished  with a spray applied paint finish , or powder coated.

Stringer Supports

Stringers are the supports for the treads, and these can be flat plate, channel , box section or circular tube underslung. 

Custom Balustrades

As we fabricate bespoke, the balustrades to stairs can be any design from vertical infill bars to glass or even solid metal plates with handrails attached.

Floor Finishes

Floor finishes we can offer chequer plate open steel, pan treads to receive screed and carpet and or timber along with bespoke laser cut patterns.
