Industries Served

Though it may be simple in appearance, the flat bar is among the most widely used metal products. Available in a wide variety of metals, flat bars are highly versatile and see use across numerous industries all over the world. 

Architecture and Design

Flat bars are often used for metal detailing in the architecture and design space. With a shape that is just as easily made functional as it is aesthetic, these products may be seen used for trim and window frames, safety railings, and much more.

Construction and Engineering

Depending on the metal used, flat bars are often used for structural purposes, adding needed support to building frames and serving other functional purposes. The shape of a flat metal bar lends it incredible versatility, especially where available space may be a concern.

Elevators and Escalators

A wide variety of metal bars may be used in elevator and escalator projects, but flat bars are especially common. Flat metal bars may provide the framework for elevator cabs or ceiling panels, or they may be used for safety features, door frames, and more. 

Available Metals

Many metals are well-suited for use as flat bar products. Depending on the unique demands of your project, including functional and aesthetic requirements, there will be an ideal metal to use. Our team produces flat bars in a range of different metals.

  • Stainless SteelStainless steel flat bars are primarily used for functional or structural purposes. As one of the strongest metals available, stainless steel is ideal for use as supports, framing, or bracing.
  • Brass Flat Bar – On the other hand, brass flat bars are typically more ornamental in nature. The unique yellow-gold color of brass is difficult to match with any other metal, making these products ideal for decorative trim and detailing.
  • Architectural Bronze – Another popular choice for decorative purposes, architectural bronze flat bars are commonly used in interior design, elevators and escalators, and sometimes for structural supports that may be visible.
  • Aluminum Flat BarPolished aluminum is among the most versatile metals, as it features an attractive silver color, is lightweight, and offers surprising strength in relation to its malleability. Aluminum flat bars may be used in nearly any industry to serve an impressive range of functions.
