Pedestrian guardrails
Types 100M and 101M

Type

100M

Type

101M
With this range it is likely that only variations in bay length are required since a standard height is always required. However, curved or raked rails are possible, as is the inclusion of special panels, for example, access gates or a raised bottom rail may be required where the run passes over a manhole cover. Our guardrails are hot dip galvanised mild steel, comply with BS3049, Class A, and are designed to perform over a long life-span. The designs can all be adapted to comply with BS7818, Classes 1,2,3 or 4. Types 100M and 101M are the strongest, heavy-duty designs in the range, having square section bars, and are an automatic choice where pedestrian separation from busy traffic is vital. Type 100M has a sight gap at the top to make it easier for drivers to see pedestrians. Panels are fixed by a three way spigot to the standard and enable replacement panels to be inserted in the event of damage.

It has staggered infill bars as standard, offering improved driver / pedestrian visibility. Staggered pattern infill bars can be offered as an option on types 100M, 101M, 103M and 106M.

Balustrades and wall handrails

Type

B1

Type

B2

Presented are four, basic balustrade systems from which many variants can be developed. Types B1 and B2 represent the simplest solutions to Common Stair guarding requirements as set out in Sections K and M of the Building Regulations, BS6399-1 and BS6180. The designs are readily adaptable for higher loadings of 1.50kN/m when required in Institutional Buildings such as schools and colleges. The balustrades can either be top fixed into the stair treads or landings, or they can be side-fixed within the well to maximise staircase width. B1 and B2 balustrades are usually supplied or fitted primed, ready for the final colour to be applied on site once a final finish is no longer vulnerable to damage from other trades. The requirement under Section M that handrails be slip resistant and not cold to the touch is met by a thermoplastic handrail capping, which is available in a wide range of colours, and which provides an efficient and durable surface. Type B4 balustrade has the same versatility and strength as B1 and B2, but has a lighter visual impact thanks to its toughened glass infill.

Type

B4

Balustrades and wall handrails

Type

B5

The B5 System lends itself generally to more focal situations, where either an impressive visual feature or a link with an overall design scheme is required. Type B5 can be constructed in stainless steel or, alternatively, in polyester powder coated mild steel. Type B5GRL is a level version, particularly suitable as a parapet or balcony guardrail. All stainless steel components for B5 are grade 304 internally and grade 316 externally, and the default finish is satin polished, with the option for a bright polished finish if specified.

Balustrades and wall handrails

Type

WRF40

Type

WRT42

Three designs of wall handrail are offered as standard, each of which is compatible with the balustrades. Type WRF40 has a semi-oval profile given its plastic capping and can be specified to complement either B1, B2 or B4 balustrades. Type WRT42 provides a round and secure grip. Its surface can be simply primed for site painting, polyester powder coated in a standard powder or, to comply with the requirement that handrails should not be cold to the touch, a warm-to-touch polyester powder or a nylon coating (in standard colour) may be specified. The tubular rail can have safety swept, closed ends in accordance with Section M. Type WRT42 is ideally suited to match the B5 balustrade system in its powder coated version. To complement the stainless steel B5 system, our type WRS42 handrail is available. For external locations, we supply all mild steel balustrading and handrail variants hot dip galvanized prior to powder coating or other paint finishes, to ensure resistance to corrosion.

Type

WRS42

As a company, we can manufacture to your specification many different balustrades and wall handrails. The designs set out only demonstrate a typical spectrum, and not our entire range. Specials can be fabricated to your regulation-compliant designs, or specific finishes.
