Description Icon Description

A profiled top, square section industrial Glass Reinforced Polymer (GRP) handrail is an extremely strong, yet cost-effective commercial rail system designed for use on platforms, walkways and staircases.

Utilising a simple rivet connection assembly method, the system can be adapted to fit most requirements and provides a robust & rigid alternative to metal systems.

A tubular knee rail in matching or contrasting colour is employed below the wide, smooth channel top profile, with a kicker (toe) plate for added safety.

The system offers the key advantages of:

  • Simplified construction technique
  • Quick to achieve long straight runs
  • No welding or specialist machining

Square section GRP handrail systems are perfectly suited to an interior, exterior and aggressive environments where industrial chemicals or acid/salt air may quickly corrode metal systems.  Commonly incorporated into new build & refurbishment designs alike, they have shown proven in-service performance for 40+ years. Handrails are manufactured from glass fibre & polyester resins by a process of pultrusion with an applied surface veil.

Available in a standard safety yellow (top profile & knee rail) and a choice of yellow or steel grey stanchions and kicker plate, GRP handrails provide all the advantages of lightweight, high strength and durability, coupled with corrosion resistant, non-conductive, fire retardant and virtually maintenance free life.
