Our Roof and Platform Handrails can be manufactured from mild steel, aluminium or stainless steel. We also supply infills, gates and specialised bends for working environments.
We offer a number of options based around your technical requirements including the loads which the handrail is expected to accommodate.
Guardrail’s industrial handrail system consists of “Ball” type handrail posts and individually fabricated handrails which once passed through the ball in the post are locked into position by way of a grub-screw to form a complete handrail.
Different post diameters, wall thickness and spacing coupled with a variety of base types mean that the majority of loading requirements are met whilst it’s aesthetic qualities are usually preferred to clamp and other types of handrail systems.
The system is easily erected/dismantled in small sections and can be tailored to suit many applications.
Current regulations call for all platforms to have a protective barrier around all open sides, consisting of a handrail, at least one intermediate or knee rail, a toe plate and handrail standards.
The distance between two rails or between the lower rail and the top of an upstand shall be no more than 500 mm.
The top of the handrail shall be a minimum distance of 1100 mm above the top of the floor.
