Our ergonomic GRP handrail system offers a cost effective alternative to conventional metallic handrail systems. With excellent life span, low installation and maintenance costs, outstanding corrosion and impact resistance, and high strength-to-weight ratios, Fibex GRP modular handrails significantly outperform steel, aluminium and timber equivalents.
The sections of tube are joined using glass fibre reinforced isophthalic polyester resin moulded fittings which are connected to the tube using a M6 stainless steel bolts with a special nut so that both the bolt head and the nut are recessed below the surface of the moulded fittings minimising the snagging points for the users.
The handrail system can also be fitted with toe plate (kick plate) where required. The toe plate is 150mm and meets the requirements given in BS4592.
The tube is the structural part of the handrail system and this complies with all the requirements of BSEN13706, E23 grade – Specification of pultruded profiles. When assembled according to the manufacturers recommendations (specifically with the stanchion at a maximum of 1.25m spacing and the handrail 1.1m from the base, then the system conforms to the requirements for BS4592 Industrial flooring, stair treads and handrails.
Our experienced team offer a full project management service from initial design through to site installation and can provide a full handrail system to suit any requirements.
