GRP Standard Handrails - we stock a standard, fibre glass handrail system that offers incredible durability and is easy to fabricate and install. Robust and sturdy, our standard handrails outperform metallic and timber alternatives due to GRP’s high strength-to-weight ratio and low installation and maintenance costs.
Our standard handrail system consists of four profiles which are available in 6 metre lengths. The handrail is easy to make by drilling a 38mm hole into the box sections for the tube to be inserted for the knee rail. The handrail profile sits on top and the toe rail at the base. The handrail system meets all the requirements of BS4592:0 2006+A1 2012 Industrial Flooring, Stairs and Handrails for Heavy Duty (0.74kN/m). The handrail also complies with BS1422-3 Stairs, Stepladders and Guardrails.

What Are The Main Benefits?
GRP Standard Handrails offer a multitude of benefits for industrial and commercial applications. One of the main benefits is the fact that they are incredibly sturdy and robust, and practically maintenance-free. Within these types of environments, they are a much better choice than alternative options such as galvanised steel. Moreover, GRP handrails provide outstanding durability and are really easy to fabricate and install.
Is GRP The Best Material For Handrails?
Following on from the above frequently asked question, there aren’t very many better alternatives than GRP within commercial and industrial environments. As well as being durable and robust, GRP is likely the best option for handrails as the material is completely corrosion-resistant with a high strength-to-weight ratio. Unlike other alternatives, such as timber handrails, your GRP handrails will last for years to come with little effort or preservation.
Can They Be Found Across A Range Of Applications?
Yes, of course. The ergonomic design of the handrails makes them a hugely popular choice for a multitude of different applications. Just a few of the most popular places where they are regularly supplied too and installed include railway stations, airports, and workstations. Furthermore, they can also be found within other commercial and industrial settings such as defence sites, manufacturing plants, and access ramps.
Are They Maintenance Free?
GRP standard handrails are virtually maintenance-free. Because of the way they are manufactured and thanks to the fact that the materials are highly corrosion-resistant, they have a much longer lifespan than galvanised steel and timber handrails. They are kept in pristine condition with virtually no maintenance at all.
