Railings are often a visitor’s first physical interaction with a building structure and can set the tone for a person’s experience of the facility they enter.
Inside buildings, railings provide the necessary support for stairs, corridors, and common areas. While a hassle-free experience usually goes unnoticed, accidents caused by improper fencing attract unwanted attention and result in costly lawsuits for builders.
Fences are important slip and fall protection. Most people usually associate them with stairs and raised surfaces, but they are also very important as extra support on flat surfaces. You can also install stainless steel handrails to give a classy look to your home.
The railing also makes facilities more accessible. Mandatory installation in wheelchair aisles and handrails assists mobility device users in safely accessing above-ground facilities. They are also important for helping the elderly and others who have difficulty walking.
Fences serve as an orientation aid for passersby at large events and regularly guide guests to their desired entry points. They are an important safety aspect for wide staircases. If the ladder is more than 88 inches wide, additional railings will need to be installed, but operators in arenas and other public areas will install them in much narrower spaces to encourage guests moving in the opposite direction to use each side.
Fences are usually easy to spot but are an important part of the blueprint. When properly installed and cared for, they enhance the sense of friendliness of the elderly, disabled, and others with mobility issues.
