Our FAQ section provides detailed answers about design, fabrication, installation, and more, helping you understand how Gilchrist Steels can meet your project needs effectively.

What are the primary benefits of using steel for walkways?

Steel walkways offer several advantages:

  • Durability: Steel is exceptionally strong and can withstand heavy use and harsh environmental conditions without deteriorating.
  • Low Maintenance: Unlike wood or concrete, steel requires minimal maintenance and is resistant to pests and rot.
  • Versatility: Steel can be fabricated into various designs and configurations to suit different applications and architectural styles.
  • Safety: Steel walkways provide excellent structural integrity and can be designed with non-slip surfaces and safety railings to enhance user safety.

How are custom steel walkways designed?

Designing custom steel walkways involves several steps:

Consultation: Understanding the client’s requirements, site specifications, and intended use.

Site Assessment: Evaluating the site to determine the best design approach, considering factors like space, load requirements, and environmental conditions.

Design Phase: Creating detailed design plans and 3D models to visualise the walkway.

How do you ensure the safety of steel walkways?
