Stainless Steel Vertical Mesh for the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts

Argus Steel was a proud contributor to the award-winning expansion and renovation project at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts.

We were tasked with providing material to create a modern, sleek design for the new wing and its exterior landscape. One of the primary concerns was finding a stylish solution for the walkway railings. In addition to having a contemporary elegance, the solution had to be in compliance with stipulated safety regulations.

Our simple, clean design incorporated stainless steel vertical mesh, reinforced with three crimped wires that added a unique decorative element while providing additional strength and stability. Constructed from stainless steel, the mesh is impervious to exposure from outdoor elements and will maintain its beauty and serviceability over the long term.

This innovative and attractive solution is a work of modern art in itself. It provides a secure, high visibility solution that interacts perfectly with the overall architecture of one of Virginia’s most renowned institutions.


Stainless steel materials offer exceptional strength and corrosion resistance. Customers have the freedom to install stainless steel products from Argus Steel both indoors and outdoors, as these components’ surfaces hold their shape, color, and appearance for prolonged periods of time. Incorporating stainless steel mesh for railings enables professionals to increase curb appeal of any industrial railing project, while providing a safe & compliant railing.

Argus Steel is proud to partner with industrial manufacturers as well as teams from diverse industries. Opting for stainless steel railings for a commercial property is a proactive way to secure the additional benefits:

  • Durability: Handrails are high-contact surfaces for employees, and visitors. Custom steel mesh railing products from Argus Steel provide additional safety when placed along walkways, staircases, and high-traffic areas.
  • Ease of maintenance: Powder coating your stainless steel railings provides additional protection against wear and tear. Install stainless steel vertical mesh products and simply wipe clean as needed using standard disinfectants.
  • Installation flexibility: As with any custom job, your railings can be made specifically to the angles of your walkways for seamless transitions.


Whether you are renovating an industrial facility or opening a new commercial building, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires you to abide by a series of guidelines for railings. Argus Steel supplies numerous metal products to help your facility remain up to code according to criteria defined in Section 505.

We are an international distributor of stainless steel products that allow you to install railings across platforms, ramps, and more. If you are unsure if your commercial property calls for walkway railings, consider the following:

  • Railings are required when an incline exceeds 6″ in height.
  • Handrails must exist along the entire length of a ramp or staircase (both sides).


Stainless steel vertical mesh products from Argus Steel close off gaps below handrails. One of our representatives can introduce you to rolls and sheets that are lightweight and affordable to suit your budget. Increase visual appeal across your private residence or commercial property with vertical mesh installations that allow light to pass through.

Our stainless steel mesh selections for railings provide a long-lasting and distinctive look. Argus Steel focuses primarily on T304 and T316 varieties.
