Who we are
We are a three-person ornamental ironworks business based out of Fairfield, CT. We custom make metal railings, stairs, gates, and more for residential and commercial properties. We perform both outdoor and indoor projects.

Our story
Connecticut Metal Railings, LLC was started in January 2018. The owner, Chad Fisher, while working full time as a project manager for an ironworks company in Stamford, started fabricating and installing iron railings as a side business. He would spend his nights and weekends dedicating himself to the work. By August 2019 the business had grown so much that Chad decided to take his business full time. Shortly after going full time, the COVID pandemic of 2020 hit. Though not an ideal time to learn how to navigate a business full time, we have stuck it out and are now thriving. We are very thankful for our customers!

Our name
Why do we call ourselves Connecticut Metal Railings if we are a small business? Our name evolved from originally being C&T Metal Railings, LLC. Chad would fabricate and install the work with the assistance of his younger brother Tony - thus creating the C&T. Understandably, customers saw the "C&T" and mistook it for the abbreviation for "Connecticut." So, they started referring to the business as Connecticut Metal Railings. As more and more customers said it, the name kind of grew on us and we embraced it. In 2021, we officially registered with the Secretary of State as Connecticut Metal Railings, LLC.

Causes we support
We believe that part of owning a business comes with the responsibility of making an impact in the community. Our communities are currently experiencing many issues, but one of the biggest and least publicized issues is how many children in America don't have food to eat every day. 1 in 8 children in America will not eat today due to poverty and lack of resources.
