Railings provide an attractive alternative to palisade systems, with a more welcoming appearance.
Manufactured in either tube or solid bar with a galvanized or polyester coated finish, railings offer low to medium security. They are commonly used to protect and segregate rather than to exclude, and the decorative finish makes them more attractive.
There are a number of different styles available, including bow top and vertical bar, giving the visual appeal of traditional railings.
Design and Specification Considerations for Recreational Areas
Fencing should never present a safety hazard and RoSPA make use of the control recommendations contained in EN 1176 (the play equipment standard) when assessing fences.
Following RoSPA guidelines, fences should be constructed and erected in accordance with BS 1722 – 9, with a minimum height of 1.0m recommended.
Bow Top Railings
These railings can be specifically designed and manufactured to hit the safety regulations required for play areas, residential areas and schools, which make us RoSPA approved.
The shaping of the arched top and the vertical tubing spacing to the horizontal railing are positioned specifically to avoid head and limb traps.
Vertical Bar Railings
Vertical bar railing systems are available as both square and round vertical tube railings. Square verticals are positioned at an angle to look like diamonds, for maximum strength and aesthetic appearance. The tops of the tubes can be either flat or angle cut. Round verticals can also be supplied with optional flat cut or angle cut profiles. Heights from 1.5 to 2.4 metres are available.
