Use Escutcheon Plates For A Refined Look

Railing Escutcheon Plate

Escutcheon (pronounced es·cutch·eon) plates are by definition a shield, cover, ornamental or protective plate. Escutcheon plates are used to conceal something functioning like mounting hardware or an unwanted hole.

Use escutcheon plates for a clean, simple or modern style

More and more customers are looking for a clean, seamless or modern look for their home. For interior railing whether it’s a cable railing or any type of railing the escutcheon plate is a great choice. I find that especially with interior applications you might want all the fasteners and hardware hidden with no exposed bolt or screw heads. Escutcheon plates are a perfect and easy solution. They simply slide over the post hiding the hardware and providing a more refined look. Our escutcheon plates are machined from a solid billet and not the thin stamped sheet metal common in the industry.

We are pleased to announce that we now offer escutcheon plates on all of our surface mounted Ithaca Style and Tokyo Style cable railings. These plates can be stainless steel or aluminum and powder coated steel to match the posts.

If you are submitting a quote request, be sure to ask for them. It’s a small detail that really helps to make your railing look more refined.
