Any exposed edge of a floor needs to have a secure barrier fitted
as a critical safety issue and strict regulations apply to the design
and strength of handrails. Even more stringent regulations apply
where members of the public have access. The style and appearance
of the handrail ranges from basic functional steel systems through
to elaborate architectural and feature designs for special applications.
The type of staircase required can vary from basic industrial stairs
through to architectural feature stairs. The most common construction
uses steel stringers, handrails and treads with tread widths of
800 to 1000mm. Wider stairs as well as special finishes and details
can be fabricated to suit any application, from storage floors to
feature office and retail types.
Pallet loading gates provide a safe and economical method for moving
goods onto and off mezzanine floors. The ‘up-and-over’
style is the most common, providing a simple and safe method of
maintaining a barrier to the floor edge.
Swing gates, slide-back gates and a variety of raising access systems
can also be supplied to suit the operation and available space /
