Hand Railing


All mezzanine floors require edge protection for health and safety purposes on all exposed edges. Edge protection is a critical part of any mezzanine floor design, as they need to be secure and robust. Most people will reach out for a handrail when ascending or descending stairs, and having a suitable handrail can help to reduce accidents by supporting individuals in regaining their balance if they slip or fall.

Safety is the priority with any handrail and edge protection solution. All our products in this area have been rigorously tested to ensure their suitability and reliability in the moments when they are needed, guaranteeing the safety of your employees or customers in any scenario.

The handrails that we supply are completely customisable to the needs of your business, providing protection to employees whilst matching the design of your premises. With different styles suitable for retail and industrial settings alike and offering a range of colours and finishes we can provide the perfect safety feature for your business.

Custom Handrail Design

Our unique edging protection design can be used to make a real visual impact in any workspace, and this is something that can be particularly useful if your mezzanine floor will be used by the general public in a retail or office environment for example. Our design allows you to customise your edging protection to suit the decor of your premises whilst ensuring safety at all times.

There is currently a legal requirement for any mezzanine flooring handrail to be at least a height of 1100mm, with a second horizontal bar at approximately halfway. Kick plates are not currently required, but we do recommend them as they help to avoid small items being kicked off the floor.

All our new mezzanine floors are provided with handrail and kick plates as standard unless specified otherwise or in certain situations such as commercial mezzanines with office partitions.
