Architectural Metalwork to the Construction Industry since 1977


Experienced Designers

Balguard employs a team of highly talented and experienced designers. We have a reputation for creativity and innovation while ensuring all our work complies with the latest British and European standards.

Our in-house design team has extensive experience in all design aspects of structural steelwork and architectural metalwork. Using the latest 2D and 3D CAD modelling software to illustrate our design ideas and remain BIM compliant.

This technology enables us to to produce detailed fabrication drawings in order to efficiently produce and install our products to the highest standard.

Product Development

We have the ability to quickly develop design sketches into 3D-Models, which can then be fully interrogated and analysed before any work takes place.

Our advice on material selection, fabrication and installation methodology at the outset of a project can often lead to a significant impact on costs and programme length.

In combining the design and manufacture stages, with the use of our CNC machinery, we can remove the margin of error at the fabrication stage.

Close Working Relationships

Detailed planning is the key to the success of any project, and with this in mind our team works very closely with the client to develop ideas and concepts that can be incorporated into the chosen design.

This initial phase determines the designs, timescales and budget allocation ensuring that all eventualities are covered.

Our Project Managers and CAD Technicians work closely with our clients, Architects and Engineers to ensure the build is feasible and the end result can be achieved.


Established in 1977, Balguard Engineering is still run by its founding directors. Our focus on quality, service and reliability has enabled us to become one of the UK’s leading architectural metalworking companies.

From our 45,000 square foot manufacturing centre, just north of London, we design, fabricate and install a wide range of architectural metalwork such as balconies, balustrades, railings and staircases.

We are recognised as experts in our industry, combining extensive experience with the latest technology to fabricate products of exceptional quality at a competitive price. We have a team of skilled tradesmen and engineers who provide a complete solution from design through to installation.
