Custom Metal Work

Steel is a versatile metal that deserves to be celebrated in terms of strength.  As many experts in the American steel industry plan to recognize National Steel Day on Sept. 24 this year, the Florida-based team at Double R Manufacturing is explaining why and how homeowners and businessowners like you can heavily rely on strong and sturdy products made of steel.

Custom-Built Processes for Steel and Metal Structures

The main objective of Double R’s specialists is to customize built-to-last products and deliver the most durable equipment. Consistently, high-quality steel supports us in accomplishing this goal and surpassing customer expectations across the United States.

  • Generally, steel is categorized into four main types: Carbon Steel, Alloy Steel, Tool Steel, and Stainless Steel. These types include various combinations of iron, carbon, and other elements. A type of steel or other material is determined by the specific project needs.
  • Double R’s team specializes in custom-built processes for gates, fences, doors, stairs, railings, signage, shutters, grills, tables, bars, benches, shelving, barn accessories, breeding stalls, trailers, carts, grills, tanks, boxes, and other one-of-a-kind pieces.
  • Typically, the design process will start with a customer explaining their goals or supplying us a CAD file to create custom-built solutions for commercial enterprises, public entities, residential homes, farms, and ranches.
  • Uniquely, each project has different processes for creation. Customization of steel or metal structures may include casting, molding, cutting, shearing, punching, bending, welding, joining, stamping, pressing, end-tube forming, beading, machining, or other processes.

Steel Specialists and Metal Fabrication Experts

Extraordinarily, in addition to customized processes for creating incredibly unique designs, Double R’s steel specialists and metal fabrication experts also have skilled training in powder coating, sandblasting, and abrasive waterjet cutting.

For example, using a high-pressure stream of water with abrasive particles, Double R’s waterjet cutting process allows for the precise cutting of shapes in various metals, including stainless steel, mild steel, aluminum, and other materials.

As for sandblasting, Double R’s experts can forcibly shape a piece of metal, etch a design on a metal surface, or clean corrosion off an old rusty piece of metal.  Sandblasting is also used to smooth a metal surface for applying durable sealants and colorful powder coatings to ensure your unique piece stands the test of time.

One of a Kind Fabrication

With the celebration of Valentine’s Day and the dawn of a new year, the month of February is prime time for a passion project. Willingly embracing a new creative challenge or project is a fantastic way to promote happiness for ourselves and others in 2021.

Made In America

The team at Double R Manufacturing is celebrating “Made in America Month” this December.  With the holiday shopping season in high gear and the new year on the horizon, now is an excellent time to support American companies.

The custom manufacturing industry often comes to mind when folks think about American ingenuity. The U.S. economy and millions of job opportunities rely on the success of large manufacturers as well as small manufacturers in local towns across the nation.

Established by President Raegan in 1985, “Made in America Month” brings timely attention to American manufacturers during the holiday season.  The average American spends around $700 on holiday shopping, according to past studies conducted by retail associations. Consumers spending their hard-earned cash on American-made products can take pride in knowing their dollars circulate back in to benefit their own communities.

Personalized Products, Gifts, and Customized Equipment
With full-scale operations based in Ocala, Florida, the team at Double R Manufacturing specializes in the fabrication and design of one-of-a-kind products and durable equipment. Businesses and residential customers trust Double R for custom gates, entrances, railings, banisters, barn equipment, trailers, and other manufactured items.

During the holiday season, there is always a notable influx in customers also seeking specialty pieces and personalized products, such as furniture, custom barbeques, signage, and beautiful wall art incorporating special patterns, logos, family names, or monograms. Customizing a manufactured item or personalizing a gift makes it more special.

Of course, big-box stores selling mass-produced items can serve a need and purpose, but custom manufacturers can exceed expectations with quality and satisfaction. When working with a local manufacturer like Double R Manufacturing, the possibilities are limitless for manufacturing styles, colors, and finishes.

Serving America’s Manufacturing Needs
Double R Manufacturing is prepared to build whatever you can imagine this holiday season and into the New Year.

At Double R Manufacturing, we believe American-made products are also something to celebrate this month and throughout the year.

Positive Contributions of U.S. Manufacturing in 2020

U.S. manufacturers employ millions of workers, bringing in billions of dollars for our annual economy.  There is no denying the manufacturing sector serves as a major contributor to the stability of our free society.

During the coronavirus pandemic, companies nationwide shifted gears to manufacturer and locally deliver in-demand items, such as personal protective equipment (PPE). This included alcohol distilleries brewing hand sanitizer, small clothing designers making protective facemasks, and major carmakers building ventilators.

Across our state of Florida, manufacturers began transforming raw materials into essential products.  Double R Manufacturing also stepped up to meet our customer’s changing needs, including banners and custom signage to convey new information or to comply with distancing guidelines. Pivoting to serve neighbors and business communities is a specialty of American manufacturers, dating back hundreds of years to times of war and times of change.

custom-stalls
While many folks are looking forward to wagering on upcoming horse races, you can bet Double R Manufacturing is taking pride in being one of America’s premier horse-stall fabricators.

Double R’s Ocala-based headquarters located in “The Horse Capitol of the World” is home to some of our nation’s greatest thoroughbreds, but Double R’s contribution to the equine community reaches far beyond our Central Florida home.

A Story of Re-Building and Strength
One of Double R Manufacturing’s significant achievements is told in the re-building story of San Luis Rey Downs in Bonsall, California, which tragically lost beloved horses and experienced the destruction of several barns and hundreds of horse stalls during a 2017 wildfire.

In a desperate need to rebuild quickly, the fabricator of choice was Double R Manufacturing.  Double R’s team was honored to work with award-winning, Omaha-based Valmont Coatings, which is considered a leader in hot-dip galvanizing and recognized by the American Galvanizers Association for numerous projects.  According to stats provided by Valmont Coatings, the entire project consisted of 57 tons of galvanized steel for 250 new stalls, featuring 4-framed walls with safety doors and windows.

Meticulous attention to details and specifications were necessary for safeguarding against warpage and for ensuring strategic placement of vents and drain holes to provide a smooth, hot-dip galvanized coating.  Double R Manufacturing completed fabrication at our Ocala facility to ensure quality control before sending the finished products to California for installation in time for successfully meeting the customer’s move-in-ready goal of April 2018.

Durability for Abrasive Equine Environments
With expectations surpassed, and a year gone by, the active barns have stall equipment standing strong. The durable coatings have offered superior corrosion protection, aesthetic appeal, and sustainability. Enduring salty air and a rigorous equine environment, was particularly important to The San Luis Rey Downs, which deserved only the highest quality, built-to-last horse stalls to keep their magnificent horses safe now and for future generations.

Fabricating Barn and Stall Equipment
With 75 years of combined experience in design and fabrication, Double R’s team invites you to browse our galleries of barn accessories and stable equipment customized for the equestrian community: Customized Barn and Stall Equipment.  You’ll find we are setting a new standard of excellence in stall and barn accessories, stall-breeding stocks, stall doors, stall-Dutch doors, stall-end wall doors, stall window bars, stall fronts, stall shutters, stall hardware, stall shutters, stall-window bars, and more.
