The Increasing Demand for Architectural Balustrades and Handrails
The usage of balustrades as roof edge protection has increased dramatically as a result of the implementation of the hierarchy of controls outlined in the working at height regulations of 2005 and the increased demand for general access to roofs and terraces.
This has raised the demand for visually appealing balustrades, which are generally used indoors, to be employed in roof top applications.
