The need is great for outdoor handrail systems which will provide for safe use by those employees and visitors as well as provide for the safety of your family, friends and visitors to your home. There are many types of railing systems on the market all over the world to meet this need. We will briefly discuss some of them:
Decorative outside railings around your patio or garden or pool area are available in steel and aluminum and are combined with glass, stone or wire rigging so they can provide a very appealing perimeter to compliment your overall design. The aluminum railing systems are available in colors to add depth to your outdoor design. You can also get systems that have post caps and post covers that have the stone look to add definite character to the style of your railing system.
Ornamental iron railing and wrought iron railing can also be used in residential or commercial applications where style and grace are desired. There are many styles of iron railing available from scroll and filigree styles to the basic no frills styles. These outdoor handrail systems can easily be incorporated into many outdoor decors to provide a graceful and elegant look.
Industrial systems offer fiberglass as an additional outdoor handrail system option. Fiberglass is lightweight, strong and easy to maintain. These fiberglass railing systems meet federal OSHA standards, are cost effective with low maintenance and are available in a number of colors. The railing can be square or round and can be designed to your specifications.
Probably the most often seen railing system in industrial / commercial application is that which is made of steel or brushed stainless steel. You'll find the basic ADA compliant steel handrail system in many commercial and municipal buildings in handicapped restroom facilities, stairways, ramps for pedestrians or product loading areas, rooftops, infill panels and fencing. These are just a few of the ways steel guardrail / handrail systems are used for outdoor locations.
One of the most cost effective properties of these outdoor handrail systems is that most are of modular construction. What that means to the consumer is this: when you need to replace or repair parts of your railing system, you can only replace or repair the damaged area without having to replace the entire system. You can get character, color and cost effectiveness in your choice of materials to meet your safety needs.
