Architectural Handrails for Harrow School

T&B commissioned LSJ Engineering to construct unusual architectural handrails for Harrow School in London.

  • Client: T&B
  • Structural detail by: Mark Ebbs
  • Job Duration: May 2019-October 2019

We were commissioned by T&B contractors to supply and fit some railings and an interesting balustrade at Harrow School, one of the most prestigious schools in the UK.

The balustrade guarded a drop over a retaining wall, which cranked and sloped. This made the fabrication quite tricky! The really interesting feature on this job, however, is the infill panels. The panels were formed by CNC punching in aluminium sheet to create an image of long grass stalks! The image of grass stalks was copied from photographs sent to the supplier by the project designers.

The handrails, balustrade frames and infill panels were powder coated in an external grade finish prior to installation. What do you think of the finished effect? We really like the image of the long grass stalks in the panels!
