Commercial Railings and Handrail Systems: Types and Material Options

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.

Glass Railing Systems

Glass commercial hand railings allow for unobstructed views while enhancing safety in a space. They can be used as guards provided they meet the local code requirements and where a commercial handrail is needed, it can be integrated seamlessly into the design or stand out for better visibility and style.

Many of VIVA Railings glass commercial railings are customizable with a variety of options to fully customize the design. Each handrail system may offer a choice of colored, tinted, frosted, or stain etched glass infill, stainless steel or wood handrails and top rails, LED lights for added safety, and powder coating for stainless steel elements.
