A choice of round tube modular or bespoke-made industrial GRP Handrail & Guardrail Systems. Durable, cost-effective and maintenance free.
Suitable for industrial and commercial environments, fibreglass handrails are commonly used for stairways, walkway & platform handrails and for guarding around machinery. The provision of a mid (knee) rail and kick or toe plate offers a full guardrail configuration. The systems are designed to comply with relevant standards and provide a versatile, cost-effective alternative to metal rails.
Evergrip fibreglass handrails are a cost effective and long lasting alternative to metal rails. They are electrically non-conductive, ergonomic (warm to touch) and can be specially built and installed to meet your specific requirements.
They have excellent resistance to fatigue or impact and are corrosion, chemical & weather resistant.
Available in high visibility a safety yellow (RAL 1023) or steel grey (RAL 7045) colours with a full range of fittings available for the modular range.
We supply all the necessary fittings and fasteners for assembly / installation and can offer engineering confirmation / drawings and fabrication as additional services.
The basic design principles for guardrails:
In accordance with general building standards:
BS 6399-1 Loading for buildings – Part 1: Code of practice for dead & imposed loads
BS 6180 Barriers in and about buildings – code of practice
A modular handrail system can be installed in a variety of different scenarios. They are particularly suited for industrial environments.
The fibreglass rail profiles are manufactured from polyester resin and glass filaments by a process of pultrusion with a surface veil. The associated GRP fittings are made by casting.
The optional application of a clear polyurethane coating or UV wax to completed assemblies when in exterior environments, will assist in reducing any long-term colour fade.
GRP materials have been used successfully in building and construction for 40+ years, with no discernible degradation in performance.
