Internal Balustrades

Internal balustrades can be more than just a safety feature in your home but can set the style of any property. At Otago Engineering, we can design anything from simple and stylish, though to ornate and timeless, incorporating embellishments to enhance your residence. When it comes to balustrades we can add decorative panels and balusters, bushes and scrolls to create elegant pieces. We can incorporate safety features such as self-closing gates to ensure added safety.

External Balustrades

We can design, build and install an external balustrade unique to your home. Whether you’re looking to add an iron balustrade to your balcony or deck area, we can incorporate a wide range of design details to make it unique to your home and incorporate added features such as self-closing gates, special design features and bespoke pieces. Our external balustrades are made here in Dunedin to suit Dunedin’s harsh weather conditions; constructed from steel, galvanised and powder coated to the colour of your choice. There are different grades of wrought iron to choose from to suit your style and budget.


Handrails are ideal for added safety on your property, they’re one of the best ways to stop slips and falls which can be common in Dunedin when it gets to winter, with regular frosts and wet weather. Steel handrails are extremely popular for several reasons, they’re highly durable, resistant to all weather conditions and rustproof.

Steel handrails are easy to maintain with less upkeep than wooden handrails. They’re affordable, especially over the long term, and they come in a wide variety of designs which we can customise for you. We often have people ordering handrails for their aging relatives or people with disabilities so that they have added safety around the home.

Galvanised Pipe Handrails

Otago Engineering can manufacture and install galvanised pipe handrails for ascending or descending stairways, slippery paths and driveways. We custom make them for each situation and have strong fixing points, as we recognise they may be subjected to some hefty pulls and sudden tugs in the course of their use.

Decorative Handrails

Handrails don’t need to be simple. Otago Engineering can design and install ornate and customised handrails, using moulded steel handrailing and finishing with flowing scrolls, adding a touch of style to your entranceway. Our handrails are manufactured to the highest standards and made from steel, galvanised and powder coated to the colour of your choice.
