Galvanised Handrails

Galvanised Handrails Primary use

Galvanised handrails were as the name suggests designed for this use and originally before the DDA disabled range came into use it was used for disabled access as well as street handrails on roads and motorways. If you look around you will find many examples of similar types of galvanised handrails in our Towns and Cities, in fact some areas of the old docks in Liverpool have the Tubeclamp range of fittings supplied many years ago when the area was first improved by the then Liverpool Development Agency. How much of the original galvanised handrails survive now I cannot be certain of but this was one of the first major projects involving this type of product and was something I was personally involved in at the time. Street handrailing using Fastclamp products and galvanised tube to some isn’t as aesthetically pleasing as more ornamental systems but from my own perspective galvanised handrails have a certain industrial charm that fake Victoriana fails to live up to, the retro industrial look appears all over modern cities in the oddest paces and in our homes these days, so galvanised handrails can offer more than your realise. Please contact us to discuss your project or requirements as we can offer more than just the product itself.
