The Guardrail 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.
All products are available in mild, stainless steel and aluminium.
Guardrail Handrail standards can be manufacured in tubular or solid materials with varying outside diameters, tube wall thickness, ball sizes, ball types in a multiple of material grades in Mild Steel, Stainless Steel and Aluminium.
Many different heights, ball centres and tail lengths can be accommodated but to meet current regulations we would recommend a ball centre of 500mm.
Types of standard available:
- Single ball
- Double ball
- Three ball
With eight standard base plate models you are sure to find a model that accommodates your handrail.
The diameter of holes can be changed to either 10, 15, or 20 mm instead of the standard 18 mm, and it is also possible to request different dimensions and/or shapes for the base plate.
Infills and Gates
We manufacture and sell standard and individually fabricated self-closing gates for handrailing. Our tubular, self-closing gates can be mounted on flats, mounted to handrail standards or RSA uprights or secured to existing posts. Self-closing gates are available in a galvanized finish or in various grades of stainless steel.
