Railing heads

With any gate or railing it often has a railing head as part of the decoration on the top. These are hot stamped, in other words a piece of metal is heated then stamped in a top and bottom die to produce the shape required. These are “bought” in parts, likely made in the far east but bought from a wholesaler here in the UK

Scrolls can be used as a top decoration, for gates instead of railing heads a few examples below, because we make the scrolls we have control over the size.

Although we have provide price guidance, on some designs, the choice of railing head will have an effect on the final price, due to the difference in cost
