Build an industrial style railing

How to make a railing out of plumbing fittings and tubing

You can build and make a multitude of things with cast iron fittings. In this article we present a very well done video on the realization of an industrial style guardrail to secure the opening of a staircase. The construction of a railing is not done lightly, depending on the different configurations of stairs, landings, steps or various situations, such as if your railing is located in a place that accommodates public or children, there are standards to be respected for the realization of this one. This is a project that is prepared upstream, this video will be very useful for the preparation of your railing.

Video produced by Salomé and Kevin, two passionate handymen who share their self-construction project for their small house. You can follow their adventure on social networks:

For the realization of this railing, the same as the one presented in the video, you will need the following elements below:

Small tip to know: Depending on the different types of projects as for our example or any other closed circuit structure, it may be useful to use a female union connector or a Male/Female union connector. This fitting allows you to screw upside down when looping the structure. It is provided for this purpose, which allows in the present case or for example of a square to make it simple, to screw in both directions. Simcores place the union fitting between 2 pipes or between a fitting and a pipe.
