John Desmond Ltd is a designer, fabricator and installer of specialist architectural metalwork. We work on projects where exceptionally high standards of architectural detailing are critical and are proud to have successfully developed working relationships with architects, designers and other contractors over our 46 years of trading in Wimbledon, London.

We have built up our reputation, since forming in 1968, as not only a safe pair of hands but as experts and specialists in our field. We willingly tackle the most complex and challenging of fabrication and construction tasks and are known by our customers for maintaining the highest standards in finish and in quality.

We are committed to using processes that do not harm the planet’s resources and have developed a recognised expertise in these techniques. In addition to colouring products and sheets we can manufacture to your specifications all types of products from profiles, custom formed sheets and laser-cutting to staircases, furniture and display units.

John Desmond Ltd is a specialist in PVD coating which is an innovation in the creation of coloured stainless steel making the surface many times harder and more durable in the process. This is produced through the process of PVD (Physical Vapour Deposition) Titanium Ion Plating which improves the performance of stainless steel by increasing wear, scratch and corrosion resistance making its durability far superior to conventional coating methods such as electroplating or powder-coating.

We produce PVD coated coloured stainless steel for sheet, profile and small components. PVD coating colours can be applied to all grades of stainless steel sheets and profiles. Sheets can be etched and two colours can be applied to a single sheet. Anti-fingerprint coatings in satin or gloss can be applied after colouring.

We can supply proprietory fittings or take customer’s own stainless steel fittings to treat with PVD coating to any colour of your choice. We also work with suppliers and manufacturers in enhancing existing product ranges with additional colour selections.

We are providers of specialist metal treatments and coatings in steel, stainless steel, aluminium,brass and other materials. Our specialist metalworks include:
Manufacture of staircases, balconies, balustrades and handrails
Manufacture of street furniture, railings, gates, canopies, signage
