We're Drof Design.

Peter Drofenik, proprietor of Drof design is as a master welder and blacksmith by trade.  In addition, Peter also teaches welding classes, is a boat builder and holds a dual degree in both Physics and Education.  As a master welder and artisan, he has had many years of personal experience in residential renovations, commercial fit outs, and commissioned pieces.  He has worked collaboratively with builders, architects, designers, artists, entrepreneurs, and homeowners.

Your purchase from Drof Design is a future investment, whether it be doors, windows, or customised furniture the items will be fabricated and finished by trades people who possess both technical prowess and an artisan approach to their craft.  This ensures that the finest steel sections are produced with precision and expert craftsmanship; Drof Design creations are all individually hand crafted and finished to the highest quality.

Steel can be rolled, forged, welded; it has virtually endless and diverse application, which creates scope to ultimately make anything that you want. It has the potential to be finished with many choices to suit your desired aesthetic including painting, galvanizing, powder coating and of course blackened/oiled or with a natural raw finish that will patina over time.

For Drof Design the project can range from a whole house being fitted out with customised bi-fold doors and windows, internal and external staircases, outdoor BBQ areas, privacy screening, letter boxes, to decorative fences and gates.  Commercial spaces can require anything from supplying large scale window frames for frontages, customised signage, tables, seating, bars, display shelving, cabinetry, and cases.  No project is too big or too small.

Drof Design recognises that every client has different needs and wants and of course budgets, Drof design revels in the challenge to supply their clients with a harmonious outcome and has an extensive repertoire of very satisfied clients.

Because Drof Design projects are enormously varied there is a unique breadth of knowledge, technical skills, and a personalised approach that most steel fabricators cannot offer. Drof Design stands apart from other companies who only produce items with standard size doors and windows with components imported from overseas which means long lead times.  These attributes ultimately place Drof Design outside of the standard category of door/window fabrication.

An additional benefit of purchasing a Drof Design product is that the company is owned and operated within regional Victoria, which means the items are produced locally within Australia and have a comparatively reduced waiting period for the start and completion date of your project.
