Choice of industrial grade systems. Durable, cost effective and maintenance free.

Suitable for all industrial and commercial environments, GRP handrails are used for stairways, walkway & platform
handrails and for guarding around machinery. The systems are designed to comply with all relevant standards and
provide a versatile, cost effective alternative to metal rails.

Offered with a choice of two, high quality systems: Round Section and Profiled Top Square Section
Both types are available with all necessary fittings and fasteners for assembly and follow the same basic design principles:

  • Upright support sections (stanchions)
  • Top hand rail
  • Mid knee rail
  • Kicker toe plate
  • Floor or wall (side mount) fixing brackets
  • A range of fittings & connectors
  • Fasteners & fixings

In accordance with building safety standards:

  • A maximum allowable stanchion centre to centre spacing of 1500 mm
  • A minimum top rail height above the walking surface of 1100 mm
  • Should offer a minimum service load of: 300N/m x max. distance (m) between stanchions

Features & benefits:

  • Strong & durable - load tested for safety
  • Non corroding - no issues with rust, virtually maintenance free, low life-cycle costs
  • Impact resistant -will not crack or chip
  • UV resistant - maintains structural integrity after long service
  • Fire retardant - plus a choice of resin type to meet any requirement*
  • Chemical resistant - resists a wide variety of chemicals - suits most environments
  • Low electrical & thermal conductivity - ideal near electrical installations or in extreme cold
  • Light weight - reduced transport costs & load on existing structures
  • Easy handling, fabrication & assembly - no welding, TCT tools for cutting

* minimum order quantities and lead times apply

Typical installation scenarios include:

  • Access platform walkways
  • Pedestrian bridges, steps & walkways
  • Worker access to machinery
  • Manufacturing plants
  • Marine vessel applications
  • Water treatment works
  • Offshore wind & oil facilities
  • Railway trackside applications

The application of a polyurethane coating to completed assemblies in exterior environments will reduce long term colour fade.
