Prestige Metal takes the purely practical aspect of the staircase and transforms it into a central design element, designing and crafting a vast range of balusters, newel posts, and custom-made stringers and railings that stand out for their remarkable quality and innovative appeal.
A NAME BACKED BY AN ENVIABLE REPUTATION
Prestige Metal was quick to forge a name for itself in the highly specialized staircase market. Through its impressive achievements and superb Contemporary, Romance, Tradition, and Universal collections, the company continues to showcase its creativity and know-how.
PRESTIGE METAL, AN INDUSTRY TRENDSETTER
Prestige Metal was the first company to design and manufacture ornamental iron balusters for wooden bannisters and steps.
With this innovation, Prestige Metal took the purely practical aspect of the staircase and transformed it into a central design element, both in prestige buildings and classic and contemporary homes.
PRESTIGE METAL HAS AN ENVIABLE REPUTATION… AND PRINCIPLES TO MATCH!
QUALITY & DESIGN
Prestige Metal focuses on the creation of exclusive and original products. Incorporating crystal and wood into stainless steel balusters is just one small example of what Prestige Metal can do to impart a unique style to your decor.
- The principle of quality
Whether it’s in the choice of wood, stainless steel, iron, baluster finishes or paint, newel posts, or other staircase accessories, Prestige Metal hand-selects each and every supplier with care.
- The principle of detail
From design to production, nothing escapes the scrutiny and skill of Prestige Metal’s team of craftspeople and technicians. The aesthetics and finishes of our stair components make all the difference.
Prestige Metal boasts a reliable team and cutting-edge technologies to ensure on-time delivery of balusters and stairway accessories that meet our clients’ exact specifications. We also have a dedicated research and development team.
With distributors across North America, Prestige Metal’s clientele is as vast as its range of products. Among our clients are numerous specialty stores, designers, architects, and stair installers.
MISSION & VALUES
“To design and manufacture balustrades, bannisters, and balusters that stand out for their quality and their ability to blend seamlessly into every decor.”
- Product variety and distinction
- The pursuit of perfection in both production and service
- A constant desire to innovate
PRODUCT VARIETY AND DISTINCTION
Prestige Metal’s strength lies in its talent for combining materials such as steel, iron, stainless steel, wood and crystal, which explains why Prestige Metal is renowned for its ability to design and manufacture stair baluster, newel posts, and accessories in a wide variety of styles.
THE PURSUIT OF PERFECTION IN BOTH PRODUCTION AND SERVICE
This motto applies to every phase of design and production, including Prestige Metal’s customer service. Each and every bannister, baluster, newel post, stringer, and stairway accessory that leaves the Prestige Metal factory reflects our pursuit of perfection.
A CONSTANT DESIRE TO INNOVATE
The Prestige Metal R&D team is constantly on the lookout for international styles, designs, and stair components. We take inspiration from the prestigious architecture and design shows in Canada, the United States, and Europe that we regularly attend to design and create stairway components with a focus on premium materials such as stainless steel, wood, iron and crystal.
A STORIED HISTORY
Bertrand Massé, a talented and visionary cabinetmaker, founds Prestige Metal. His goal is to create a line of ornamental iron balusters for wooden steps and bannisters. His idea takes off and, two years later, Prestige Metal wins the Innovation award at Expo Habitat Québec..
Prestige Metal acquires its own production facility on Route de l’Aéroport in Québec City and centralizes production of all its staircase parts and accessories there.
The success of its staircase accessories, balusters, newel posts, balustrades, and bannisters spurs Prestige Metal to relocate to a new facility at 2120 Rue Lavoisier, in Quebec City’s Jean-Talon Industrial Park, where it still operates today.
Prestige Metal changes hands, and is now under the leadership of a group of business people headed up by Claude Lafrance.
Prestige Metal launches its special-order program at home renovation centers across Quebec and Ontario. It also sets up a research and development team to keep a constant eye on the latest industry developments and to visit the major international design and architecture shows to monitor trends for indoor staircases.
In a bid to promote its balusters, newel posts, and stairway accessories beyond Quebec, Prestige Metal decides to expand into the Ontario market. Another successful initiative!
The latest trends in stainless steel are now on offer from Prestige Metal, as new posts, horizontal stainless-steel systems, glass clamps, and more are added to the lineup.
Prestige Métal adds to its creations a new collection of steel stair stringers (Oslo, Paris, Tokyo) with incomparable design and durability, acclaimed by building contractors and architects.
Prestige Metal launches a new line of spiral staircases.
Prestige Metal is sold on April 1, 2017, to new owners André Gagné and Franco Serli.
Prestige Métal adds a new steel stair stringer, the New York, to its creations. Without fasteners or visible screws, it draws simple and essential lines in space, without any garnish. It provides a classic line suitable for any type of interior decoration.
Two new stringer creations have been added to the prestigious collection for which it is famous, San Diego and Chicago. With its sober and elegant lines, the San Diego is ideal for a contemporary universe. The Chicago, for its part, surprises with its presence that is both strong and discreet. It will amaze the most curious with its unique design.
