    Stair railings

    I am now in the process of trying to find some stair railings (banisters)

    I want these made of iron as stainless seems over-priced

    but even the iron not-too-fancy versions run at B2500 a metre, from my first estimate

    anyone have a recent costing for these?

    It's going to depend on the design. Hard to figure without a design.

    no, not as fancy as that, Norton

    more just a slight addition to the uprights, and simple end posts

    http://www.stairpartsusa.com/Stair_P..._Iron_s/21.htm

    like the 4th from left, contractor grade, maybe every 10cm

    they are about $5/6 each in the US, imported from China

    so if there are 10 per metre, that would be $55 per metre av, just the spindles

    $55 x 30 B1800 per m, without handrails or posts

    maybe B2500 is not too bad, and I can bargain a bit

    We use 1500 baht per lineal meter for estimating that kind of railing.

    Plenty of them I'm sure. I used a simple sketch for the property entrance gate and stopped by a few fabricators in the area for quotes. Turned out not much difference in price so picked one who had best workmanship. Welds, finish, et al.

    I tried one local guy, but they did not do any design stuff, just straight iron

    I appear to be in a similar situation. Any info on the Chiang Mai railing manufacturers would be appreciated as I have three balconies to do.

    I fond a good guy from Mae Rim area; his work is OK (not the finest) but his price was half that of another metalman

    The only quibble I had with his work was that they were very messy, but that would probably apply to most of them

    PM me if you want his number - Thai speaking only

    If anyone needs a Bangkok guy then pm me for details.

    I was impressed with the company I used, they stuck to my original design and reproduced it as I wanted.
