Handrails

GRP Handrails offer an economical barrier solution in a corrosive atmosphere. Various systems are available depending on situation, but all are designed and tested to the standard specifications for metal handrails. Adaptability of the various systems allows rapid installations!

Advantages

 

  1. Light weight (50% less than steel) reduces installation – both in labour and equipment required!
  2. Light weight (50% less than steel) reduces overall weight of structures!
  3. Adaptability of systems allows easy onsite modifications with no “hot permit” required!
  4. Safe around electrical equipment – very low electrical conductivity!
  5. Good in hot, humid or Arctic conditions with no physical “touching” issues!
