Ensure that your railing has a smooth surface throughout the entire length of the railing. Someone should be able to easily run their hand along the entire railing.
Your railing must be 900mm-1.1m tall. Also, a ramp must have a minimum clear width of 1m.
When there is a drop off , ramps require a curb or curb rail to prevent wheel chairs from slipping out from under the railing. In some cases a mid rail is sufficient to provide this protection.
Our railing system is a cost effective installation suitable for stairs, ramps or walkways that conform to the railing requirements of the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA), the Building Regulations Part M and British Standard BS 8300. A DDA handrail is a framework of horizontal rails supported by vertical uprights (posts), assembled from fittings and tube. This type of railing provides a continuous gripping surface throughout its entire length.
The railing system incorporates a group of galvanised fittings and has been designed with versatility and speed of installation in mind. Ideal for use in creating new structures, the system can also be used as a retrofit solution because it includes add-on offset fittings A10-748 and A10-848 which allow a new handrail to be added onto an existing tube structure.
The modular railing is flexible enough to accommodate most variations between design drawings and site requirements. The system does not require any welding or threading, and is easily assembled without specialised workers or equipment. All fittings are galvanised for low long-term maintenance and can be powder coated to your choice of RAL Colors.
Get in touch with our team (by either email, phone or web contact form) and let us know what your requirements are. Send us relevant drawings and plans.
Once we've got all the details we need, we will send your request to our technical team who will be able to design and quote for a DDA compliant handrail.
If you are happy with our quote, place the final order with us and we will take it from here. All our DDA handrails are made to order.
We will powder coat all fittings and tube in order to comply with DDA requirements. The process take 4 weeks. We do not keep any powder coated fittings or tube in stock.
We will ship the railing to you as soon as we can. Our DDA handrails are easy to put together - this is why we do not offer an installation service for this product.
