Guard Rails

Standard guardrail fabrication includes variations of steel, aged stainless steel, and wood. Single and double railing systems are standard guardrail installation options. All guardrails must comply with OSHA standards

Standard guardrail systems are mounted to the floor by base plates that fastened with anchor bolts. Each guardrail system also includes fabricated steel columns. Columns or posts are pre-drilled by the manufacturer and include the hardware for installation.

Standard galvanized steel systems (12-gauge) provide durability and fabricated in curved, 90-degree variations, for traffic areas. Other variations include cylindrical beams and flatter beams, that feature ribbing. 

For indoor and outdoor areas, railings are usually painted OSHA yellow. The type and amount of beam railing vary according to requirements. Railings can consist of one to three beams. Beams are coated with UV resistant polyurethane sleeves.
