Why Choose Britannia Metalwork Services

Continuous curved full metal fence

Britannia has been making top quality garden and estate ironwork since 1976. Our products are simple and beautifully designed. We have established a reputation for providing a highly personal and reliable service to all our customers.

Our clients include landscape architects, garden designers, architects, some of Britains most important private Estates, Heritage organisations, Construction firms, Local councils and Governmant departments as well as private gardeners. Our ironwork has featured in a number of award winning gardens and is regularly featured in the press.

The highest quality ironwork

  • Last year 30% of our business was from repeat customers
  • All our mild steel conforms to the quality level BSEN10025S275JR
  • For site installations,our steel is shotblasted and primed (unless we are supplying a bare metal fence) prior to despatch to site, so there are no sharp burrs or unsightly lumps. We apply two top coats of paint on site.
  • The fence is continuous. It is joined using a system of tapered welds at staggered intervals.
  • Each top joint is fully welded to ensure no movement in the upright.
  • Our posts are driven 600mm into the ground and we use a system of underground steel steadies to ensure extra strength and rigidity at the correct angles.
  • All galvanised products are properly cleaned and smoothed prior to painting
  • For most installations (all fencing over 50m) we insist on a site visit to check ground conditions and to meet the client.
  • Each site installation is supervised by an experienced team leader
  • We NEVER use sub contractors.

Bespoke Ironwork & Special Commissions

  • All our estate and park fencing is made to order and tailored to the project in question
  • We fully survey sites prior to the final quotation to ensure we know exactly what ground conditions to expect and act accordingly. So for example where we deem the ground is soft we will increase the number of steadies, use concrete where necessary or increase our size specification for the upright posts.  
  • Likewise, in addition to our small range of “off-the-shelf” products, we specialise in making gates, pergolas, gazebos and arbours to our customers own specifications.

Full Accountability and Pride in Our Work

  • We are proud of the work we produce. We do not believe in importing any components, nor do we believe in subcontracting the installation of our fencing to others.
  • We only use our own fully trained staff for all installations, enabling us to deliver quality, integrity, timeliness and courtesy. 
  • We have a wealth of experience, an impeccable track record and are always delighted to supply references.

Stonebank Ironcraft Ltd will from now on be trading as Britannia Metalwork Services. The ownership has not changed, however following our purchase of Britannia Architectural Metalwork, for the sake of rationalisation, good housekeeping and presenting a clearer picture of who we are and what we do we have decided to bring the two businesses together under the name of Britannia Metalwork Services Ltd.

Both businesses will retain all of their existing employees and their specialist skills. The two divisions trading under BMS Ltd will be known as Britannia Architectural Metalwork and Britannia Fencing.
