We recently received a call from a dancer in Toronto, about our selection of wooden rails. Since she was ready to retire, this well-known ballerina wanted to open a dance studio to continue the tradition and share her love of dance with others. Not only did she need wooden rails around the mirrored studio walls, but she wanted to build some portable, free-standing rails, and was considering glass railings for her upstairs office space. We saw this as a great opportunity for us and for her. We showed her the materials and styles we had available, and she decided that coming to us was the right thing to do.
A Variety of Wooden Railings
We’ve all seen dance studios, either on TV or in real life. The wooden rails that line the studio walls are called ‘barres.’ They have to be durable and easy to keep clean. In addition, this dancer wanted us to help build several sets of portable barres that could be raised and lowered for her younger students. Her upstairs office had a view of the studio floor below, but the heavy wooden decorator posts and wood railings that were already there obstructed her view, so she wanted to replace them with glass railings. We were able to fulfill all of her requirements with no difficulty.
Most of the jobs we get at Toronto Railings aren’t this interesting, or this challenging, so it is always fun when we are asked to do something new. Wooden rails are the most common product we are asked for, but this was the first time we had done anything like this. With the know-how, great materials, and beautiful styles we have at our disposal, this ballerina’s project was done in no time, and your project is just as special to us.
