The guardrail is an important item for safety on balconies, mezzanines, stairs, ramps, sidewalks, swimming pools and corridors. The choice of material and design can have a direct impact on the end result, so it is important to plan its impact on decorating the environment as a whole.
Materials for the guardrail
The guardrails are usually made of sheet metal or glass. In the latter case, you should choose tempered glass, which has a much higher resistance to all types of accidents. When selecting metal materials such as steel or ferrous materials, they should be protected against corrosion.
Note the NBR 14.718, which sets the rules for different types of guardrails in homes and commercial establishments. There are also models of concrete, PVC, stainless steel and wood.
The ideal height for the bodyguard
The railing must be at least 1 m from the ground for safety. The models of the railings of the type Gradil, should have the maximum distance of 110mm between the profiles. This ensures the safety of children. Nevertheless, for those who have pets, it may be advisable to install protective grids to avoid any kind of accident.
There are other requirements regarding the anchoring of bodyguards who must follow the rules so that they have secure attachment and performance.
Always rely on the advice of a specialist to design and install the guardrail in your design.
