Architectural Handrails for Harrow School

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

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

Our commission was 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, which created an image of long grass stalks! The project designers sent photographs of grass stalks to the supplier, who copied the image.

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!
