With the rigorous intent and stripped-down style of a gleaming modern express train, steel balustrades span long distances effortlessly, conveying a feeling of power as they go. A steel balustrade can curve, descend, or simply hold the aesthetic line — but in each case, they lend excitement and strength to every space they inhabit.

Years of meticulous observation have injected Arden’s expertly designed steel balustrades with energy and crisp style. Whether in office foyers, staircases, or lobby areas, Arden’s steel balustrades showcase their structural chops without weighing down the space.

In each folded metal balustrade installation, Arden’s sculptural prowess is on display, directing the flow of movement while providing a vividly attenuated passage.
