Sturdi Iron Fabricates

Structural Steel

Structural Steel is one of the most commonly used materials in commercial and industrial building construction. From homes to high-rises, basements to parking garages….we specialize in doing business with the small contractors to larger construction companies.

Ornamental Iron

Ornamental Iron (also known as Wrought Iron) is a tough, malleable, ductile, corrosion-resistant and easily welded material that makes it easy to use for constructing jobs that have ornate structures. It can be used indoor (from homes to hotels) and outdoor (from windows to gardens) to enhance the façade.

Ornamental Iron is attractive, versatile and adds security to your projects. Sturdi Iron Inc. can provide custom and specialty jobs with this material, whether it’s curved or straight.

Miscellaneous Metals

Miscellaneous Metals is very similar to Ornamental Iron. Almost every project contains some scope of miscellaneous metals. Miscellaneous Metals include such items as:

  • Steel, Stainless Steel, and Aluminum Railings
  • Grates
  • Landings
  • Hand & Guard Rails
  • Elevator Pit Ladders
  • Catwalks
  • Ships Ladders
  • Roof & Canopy Frames


Our dedicated staff includes detailers on site who can take your project from A to Z with precise detailing of the most challenging configurations assuring you will have no surprises on your project installation. Custom work for property builders and re-fabrication of obsolete products is our specialty
