Bespoke steel solutions
We offer a comprehensive range of bespoke steel products and services. We work with you to understand your project requirements and are happy to attend site surveys and provide bespoke CAD design services where required.
Our range includes steel access covers, headwall products including trash screens, raked gratings, hand railing systems and sewers for adoption compliant safety grilles, to ladders, steps iron, safety chains and signs.
Many of our products are manufactured from rolled steel sections which are hot dip galvanised to BS EN ISO 1461 following fabrication (as an alternative to hot dip galvanising products can be supplied stainless steel). Minimum zinc coating thickness under the standard is 85µm, this can be increased to 100µm or 140µm for extended life expectancy. As an alternative to hot dip galvanising products can be supplied stainless steel.

The importance of site visitations when specifying steelwork
Due to a lack of regulations and agreed industry standards, specifying the right steelwork for a project can be a minefield. Paul Shaw, director of fabricated steel at Wrekin Products, discusses the importance of expert site visitations when it comes to engineering cost-effective, long-lasting, and practical solutions.
BT approved access covers now available
Certified to BS EN124 and carrying the British Standards Institute (BSI) Kitemark, our BT approved access covers are ideal for use in Group 2 B125 class environments such as car parks, open air shopping precincts and pedestrianised town centre areas where occasional vehicular access is likely.
Famous setting for infill covers
Wrekin’s products can be found in a wide variety of environments, some more iconic than others.
The 100mm deep block pavior infill cover and frames seen here were installed recently on the Armed Forces Memorial at the National Memorial Arboretum, the UK’s year-round centre of Remembrance in Staffordshire which honours the fallen and recognises service and sacrifice.
