Along with our structural steel fabrication and erection services for residential and commercial construction, we offer a full range of steel fabrication and metalwork services. We can design, fabricate, and install all tyles of structural and non-structural steelwork, including architectural work, sculptures, and one-off designs. 

From small, specialist jobs to large fabrication work, we take care to ensure that every project receives the same attention to detail. From initial call, through measure, design, fabrication and installation, our team works to ensure the accuracy and standard of the final product – so when it is time for installation or delivery – it’s ready to slot into place. 


Gates + Fencing

At Arcwell, we have been manufacturing gates and fencing in Whangarei and Northland for several years. Our skilled and efficient team are well-versed in the design, manufacture, and installation of all types of gates and access solutions. Whether it is a security gate, a wrought iron gate for your statement house, a powered gate for effortless control, for a stadium or farm - we have got your back.

Our team of experienced welders and metal fabricators allow us to work with you to bring your custom design to life. We focus on reliability, durability and high quality. 

No matter what gate style you are needing - be it a swing gate, sliding gate, or cantilevered sliding gate - with powered or manual control, our team will work with you to supply a solution designed for your exact requirements.

We can work with a range of materials, so no matter if you want a gate constructed from Aluminium, Steel, or Wrought Iron, for Residential or Commercial applications - we can help out.

All our gates can be supplied with manual or electronic control options – so if you’re wanting add-ons like an intercom system, loop detectors, keypad codes, safety sensors – or something else entirely, let us know – we’ll be happy to talk through the options with you.

Handrails + Balustrades

At Arcwell, we pride ourselves with the quality workmanship of our wrought iron handrails and balustrades. We offer a complete package – design, manufacture and installation. We can manufacture in stainless, mild, and galvanised steel to suit the location – whether for indoor or outdoor applications. 

Indoor and outdoor stairways, access ramps, and balconies all need a handrail or balustrade to meet building code requirements – and we work with architects, designers, builders, and homeowners throughout Northland, Kaipara, and Auckland to provide handrails and balustrades for all parts of your property - providing safety for users, and restricted access where necessary. 

Whether it is for outside areas like the pool and deck, to interior staircases and balconies, our team of experienced engineers have the skills and experience to create any handrails and balustrades you require, finished in the design that fits in with the aesthetics of your property and vision. 

Whether it is a simple galvanised pipe rail for a commercial or educational facility, a stainless-steel handrail for high-traffic and architectural areas, or a powder-coated steel or wrought iron option to match your existing designs – our team can custom make to your specific requirements. 

For projects with complex design requirements, we can provide custom-designed balustrading or railing solutions for any application. Our use of advanced pipe bending machinery allows us to create complex and seamless curves for ramp handrails, ensuring compliance with Health and Disability Services (Safety) Act requirements.

All handrails and balustrades we supply are designed and built to comply with the compliance and building codes of your local authority – and our team can take care of the entire process, from site measurements through fabrication and installation onsite.

Once the staircase frame is complete, we can transport all components to your site anywhere in the North and will work with your builder and other tradespeople to install the stairs to the precise accuracy required for stair installation. We’re all about customised, friendly service and advice, quality work, and a fantastic, finished result.
