Wrought iron landing railing
What is a landing railing?
A landing railing is a safety barrier installed along the landings or open platforms of a staircase, balcony or mezzanine. Its main role is to prevent accidental falls by preventing people from going over the edge of the elevated structure. Landing guardrails are designed to provide support and protection, ensuring the safety of people using stairs or near raised areas.
Landing railings can be made from different materials such as wrought iron. Wrought iron landing railings are particularly appreciated for their aesthetic appearance, their strength and their durability.
In addition to their safety functionality, landing guardrails can also contribute to the overall aesthetic of the space. They can be adorned with artistic designs, wrought iron designs, decorative details and custom finishes to add character and elegance to the staircase or balcony.
Wooden stairs and sheet metal railings
The railings are made of oxy-fuel cut sheet metal, reminding us of the trees, in complete harmony with the modern design of the house and its bucolic environment.
These railings encircle a wooden staircase with a metallic structure (hidden in the walls). This technical touch is invisible to the naked eye but confirms the structure’s solidity as well as our trade’s functionality: making beautiful things, of course, but not only: every little screw or lining contributes to the work as a whole and ensures its safety.
What are the characteristics of a landing railing?
The features of a landing railing can vary depending on the material used, design style and the specific needs of the space.
Regarding safety, landing guardrails must be of sufficient height to ensure the safety of occupants. Building standards may vary depending on local regulations, but generally the minimum recommended height is approximately 90 centimeters to 1 meter.
A landing guardrail generally consists of vertical uprights (posts) and one or more horizontal bars (smooth). The structure must be strong and stable to withstand pressure and prevent falls.
The spacing between horizontal bars or guardrail panels is also regulated to prevent the passage of a child or pet. Standards generally recommend a spacing of less than 10 centimeters.
Landing railings can be customized with decorative finishes and details to match the style of the surrounding space. This can include wrought iron designs, ornaments, elegant curves, carved balusters, etc.
Landing guardrails must be strong enough to withstand loads and stresses. The material used should be chosen based on its structural strength and durability to ensure reliable long-term protection.
It is essential that landing guardrails meet the safety standards in force in your region. This may include specific requirements for height, spacing, strength and other aspects of guardrail design and installation.
