Commercial railing and handrail systems are essential for the safety and comfort of those that use the commercial space. In commercial spaces, handrails are required on most stairways and on ramps with a rise greater than 6”. On stairways and ramps, handrails are required on both sides for maximum safety and fall prevention.
Handrails are a functional design feature that must meet local building codes, but it doesn’t mean they can’t be a design element in their own right. Today’s commercial railing and handrail systems provide modern style in addition to the safety that’s expected from them.
Commercial projects can incorporate a number of different commercial handrail systems along with commercial guardrails that enhance the aesthetic and use materials that make the most sense for the overall design.
