As you are approaching a flight of stairs, the first thing you do is scan its height. The second action is to make your first step. Next, you grab a hold of a handrail. If you’re healthy and active, that may be the sequence but if your balance is a bit shaky, the third action might replace the second. Handrails serve an obvious purpose, but have you ever ascended steps or ramps without them? A history of mishaps, broken bones and hospital visits have made handrails mandated in the United States. Whether you are a business or homeowner, local codes, state and national laws require them.
The federal government does not play when it comes to handrails. Plenty of homeowners make renovations without filing the proper documentation with the city. This is akin to playing Russian roulette. All it takes is for a neighbor, postal worker or guest to report you to the municipality and it’s a wrap. An inspector will impose a fine until the situation is remedied. Why deal with all that drama when its completely avoidable? Handrail installations are inexpensive and quick to install. Contract Roseville Fence Experts to be in good standing with the ADA, United States Access Board and municipal permit requirements.
These sturdy devices lend more than safety, balance and security. Handrails contribute toward the architectural detail of stairs, landings and ramps. They provide increased mobility for physically challenged individuals. In addition to meeting ADA requirements, they can be relatively maintenance free. If you opt for wood, cleaning with a gentle detergent specially formulated for wood is periodically necessary. Metal handrails only require a light cleaning to remove handprints and traces of bacteria. Best of all, handrails are durable and affordable. When you enlist us to install your handrails, you won’t need to concern yourself with bolts loosening. We get it right, the first time.
Place handrails wherever they are necessary. Showers, tubs and bathrooms are where people are known to slip and fall. Short steps and a series of stairs is where we tend to lose our balance. Handrails on decks and landings will allow you to stabilize yourself. Ascending and descending ramps can be dangerous when you’re not at your physical best. Don’t risk hurting yourself or others. Contact Roseville Fence Experts for professionally installed, sturdy handrails. We’ll present you with a variety of materials, styles and shapes. A product specialist will inspect the area and provide expert recommendations.
Contemporary handrail materials vary in texture, strength, durability and color. The type of handrail installed is dependent upon the location, usage and preexisting structures. We typically install wood to complement wood steps, ramps or decks. Metal handrails look amazing with glass balconies and stairs. This is the handrail of choice for modern commercial buildings and homes. We will occasionally install a glass and metal combination for an ultra contemporary appeal. If you are in need of handrails, shoot us an email with a photo of the area attached. We will respond within 8 to 14 hours. Find out much more details about us.
