With the adoption of the hierarchy of controls laid out in the working at height regulations 2005, and the increased requirement for general access to roofs and terraces has meant that the use balustrades as roof edge protection has increase exponentially. This has led to the increased requirement for aesthetically pleasing balustrades, typically seen internally, to be used in roof top applications.
Eurosafe Solutions can provide a full design, supply and installation service for a range of fully compliant bespoke balustrade and guardrail systems.
We can provide either a fully bespoke or fixtures and fittings type in stainless steel, aluminium or mild steel; supplied in a variety of finishes to suit our clients wishes.
These handrail systems can be supplied with infill tailored to the client’s requirements including standard tube type mid rails, glass panels, wire and fitting type infill or fully bespoke decorative steel or aluminium panels.
Our service includes for a full site survey, and engineering calculations to ensure that the building structure and fixing background is sufficient to take that imposed by the handrail, and production of 3D images of the finished product prior to fabrication. This allows our client to fully understand the visual impact the handrail has on the elevation of their building, therefore changes to design can be made at an early stage ensuring the client gets exactly what they wanted on site.
