Used for safety, stability, and security, hand railings are needed along stairs, ramps, uneven walkways, and other situations where footing isn’t level. They should also be used where dropoffs of any height are present, such as loading docks and other raised platforms.
Hand Railing and Security Railing Materials
Wrought iron handrails are much better suited than wooden handrails to stand up to the true four-season weather of the Pacific Northwest. With little to no maintenance required, and our expert installation, means these railings, handrails, and other stabilization measures are truly “set it and forget it.”
Another option to consider is aluminum handrails. Although they may not have the elegance of wrought iron, they are just as durable and long-lasting. In both aluminum and iron stair handrails, powder-coated surfaces provide even more longevity as well as a variety of colors and finishes.
Other Security Railings and Hand Railings Uses
While handrails for outdoor steps provide stability, hand rails can also be used to help control crowds at large gatherings. For example, at a ballpark or music venue, permanent railings can help queue people for either buying tickets or entering the venue. This helps prevent any surges in the crowd and protects people in line.
Hand railings are also needed in stadiums or sporting fields where elevated seating is available. Both to assist people climbing the steps and at either end of the seating for safety. We install, repair, or replace security and hand railings if your existing railings are failing.
Professional Security Railing Installation
Although there are installation kits you can buy that promise their security railings are “easy to install,” when it comes to safety, you want to make sure it’s done right. A faulty grab bar or poorly-installed hand railing can be a hazard and lead to extensive injuries.
Depending on the jurisdiction, there are also certain codes that need to be followed when installing hand railings and security railings. Just like stairs or ramps need to be at a certain pitch in a public place, handrailings need to be a certain height and posts need to be buried at a certain depth.
