About Designer Metal

Designer Metal is based in Elmsett in Suffolk, England. Started in the nineties, by Xavier Cooper, it originally offered bespoke iron work projects to private clients. Since then it has become one of the main providers of country iron work in the UK. We now specialise in Estate Fencing & Metal Tree Guards.

Every year we install many miles of traditional estate fencing, all of which is manufactured by us in our workshops in Suffolk.

We are very proud of our range of metal tree guards and have refined our manufacturing process to such a degree that we now go toe to toe on price with importers, whilst still offering home grown quality.
