Importance of Handrails

A well-designed and fabricated handrail offers support, guidance, and safety. It may also impact how users interact with their surroundings. 

Handrail applications include: 

  • Stairs
  • Around platforms
  • Along ramps
  • Stair towers
  • Crossovers
  • Mezzanines
  • Around large tanks
  • Water reclamation equipment
  • Catwalks

A railing system determines how safe an environment will be. Investing in custom-manufactured railings from an experienced fab shop often pays for itself.

Benefits of Structural Steel Handrails

While a wide variety of metals can be used for custom fabricated handrails, the majority are made of structural steel. This is largely due to the many benefits structural steel handrails offer.

  • Durability

You need a strong, durable material for making handrails to ensure complete safety. This makes using structural steel a no-brainer. Structural steel is much stronger than other materials and is rust-proof so it weathers well.

  • Easy to Maintain

Structural steel handrails are extremely low-maintenance. All you have to do is wipe them down with a brush or damp cloth to keep them clean and shiny.
