We stock a standard, fibre glass handrail system that offers incredible durability and is easy to fabricate and install. Robust and sturdy, our standard handrails outperform metallic and timber alternatives due to GRP’s high strength-to-weight ratio and low installation and maintenance costs.

Our standard handrail system consists of four profiles which are available in 6 metre lengths. The handrail is easy to make by drilling a 38mm hole into the box sections for the tube to be inserted for the knee rail. The handrail profile sits on top and the toe rail at the base. The handrail system meets all the requirements of BS4592:0 2006+A1 2012 Industrial Flooring, Stairs and Handrails for Heavy Duty (0.74kN/m).
