GRP Modular Handrails

GRP modular handrails system offers a cost effective and lasting alternative to conventional metallic materials e.g Key Klamp. With low installation and maintenance costs, outstanding corrosion and impact resistance, and high strength-to-weight ratios, GRP modular handrails significantly outperform steel, aluminium and timber equivalents.

50 x 40mm GRP pultruded tube (5mm wall) in 5m lengths that fit exactly into a comprehensive range of matching GRP moulded fittings. The pultruded tube and toe plate are manufactured from high grade isophthalic polyester resin with E glass fibre roving, a continuous filament mat and a surface veil. The moulded fittings are made from a proprietary sheet moulding compound, which includes chopped E glass fibre, isophthalic polyester resin and mineral filler. The handrail also complies with BS1422-3 Stairs, Stepladders and Guardrails.

Are Modular Handrails Safe?

Yes, of course. Modular handrails are completely safe. GRP Modular Handrails are one of the safest options in the industry because of the connectors used within the structure.
