Frequently Questions

Home > FAQs

Do you have your own Fabrication shop?

Yes we do. Fabrication shop is in the heart of Vancouver BC at 1225 East 2nd Avenue  where you can reach at our shop through Clark Drive.

Do you work in aluminum?
Yes. Most designs can be fabricated in iron or aluminum.
Steel or Aluminum?

The Penometal steel and aluminum products features the latest fusion welding technology. The welded construction of the products is a combination of rail strength and joint efficiency. In a welded panels the vertical load bearing strength is equal to the sum of the rail strengths of all the rails in the panel. Mechanically fastened systems typically lose some of the efficiency at each joint because potential movement or rotation can occur; during installation, from wind, or simply from people and objects leaning against the fence. That isn’t a problem with our products, because the joints are welded and not fastened, making this fence product more solid in feel, function, and form. So, the only concerns for choosing aluminum or steel are the security and design possibilities. According to the steel specification and strength, it’s recommended to use this type of materials for making your deck or backyard more secure. On the other hand, as we do wrought iron as well, we offer countless of design alternatives and custom fabricated products when we turn to Steel. Peno metal railing and gates provide customers with a high quality galvanized products to meet their expectation of durability of more than 30 years!

How long does it take to fabricate and install my project?

Depending on the size and complexity of the project, we will do our best to meet any  schedule required. Our typical turn time after receipt of order is four to six weeks, however, during summer it would be as much as ten to twelve weeks because of extra volume in our workload.

Upon acceptance of our estimate, we require a 30% down payment, 50% after delivery payable by cheque,  credit card or cash. We will then invoice you for the balance upon the successful completion of your project.

Yes. For an accurate estimate of the repair we can either do an on-site inspection  or you can email us pictures and description of your repair project.

Do you install your own work?

Yes, we do install our own work, and we won’t leave your job site until the work is installed exactly the way  you want it. We will also do the fabrication only for customers that would like to do the installation themselves.

Do you provide automation and access control for your gates?
Automated gates and access systems are parts of our job and we don’t let you get into any trouble with that.
What kinds of finishes are available?

We can provide any finish that can be applied to steel. Typically, customers will choose powder coating  or galvanizing because of their high durability.

What are the advantages of metal products (railing, fence, gates, etc.) as opposed to wood?

While wood may be the cheaper option at first glance, metal is much more durable and will save you money in the end of the day. With the rainy weather that we often have in the Vancouver area, wood will weaken over time and will require frequent coating to be protected. Metal, on the other hand, will stand the test of time and requires much less maintenance. At last but not least, Penometal custom metal railing and gates will add elegance and value to your property.
