Metal steps and metal work platforms

We have been designing and fabricating different types of pre-assembled metal stair kits as well as custom solutions that our team install on location with no custom tools or equipment. We are a valued provider in a variety of industries, from Rail, to manufacturing and commercial.

Steel mould fabrication

SMF can supply steel concrete moulds from our range of standard moulds or we can design a bespoke mould to suit a specific application. One of the clear benefits of getting the input of our in-house team is their familiarity with production techniques.

Mezzanine floor fabrication

A mezzanine floor is, strictly speaking, an intermediate floor in a building which is partly open to the floor below, or which does not extend over the whole floor space of the building.

Sub contract production offer

As an invisible end-to-end fabrication partner we offer a seamless product delivery service that streamlines manufacturing and logistics processes, translating to reduced risk, improved profitability and greater velocity to market.

Advantage of sub contract production

Outsourcing a portion or all of your company's manufacturing needs can allow you to reduce your overall expenses, increase productivity or expand your operations.

Well grilles, bar grilles, mesh grills

We install a wide variety of mesh grilles for both doors and windows, including hinged, removable and permanent models.
