Mezzanine Handrails

Handrails are there to protect you and your products.

Mezzanine Handrails Are An Essential Accessory

Designing and installing mezzanine handrail systems are an important part of any mezzanine design. Handrails are placed along the edges of the mezzanine, and they are designed to stop people or products from falling off of the structure. Features like these handrails along with our gates and guardrails are simple steps that we take to provide a safer work area.

As with our mezzanine staircases, our handrails will always meet or exceed the appropriate IBC or OSHA mezzanine handrail regulations that fit your facility. When you work with us, you will receive a mezzanine that maximizes your vertical space and preserves the safety of your employees and operations at the same time. We believe in making the most of your area without sacrificing any level of protection.  

Our Different Handrail Models

As always, accessories like this will be planned out in the consultation and drawing phases of our process. The standard height for our handrails is 42”. We offer three different models that we can supply, depending on your needs. These models and their features can be modified to fit the mezzanine that we design for your facility. There are 2 Rail, 3 Rail, and Wire Mesh handrails. Each model is equipped with an optional kick plate, and each one has different applications.

  • 2 Rail Handrail: This is our light-duty protection option, but it still provides ample protection.  
  • 3 Rail Handrail: This is the next step up, and it meets all BOCA, UBC, and IBC safety standards.
  • Wire Mesh Handrail: The Wire Mesh handrail is required in most commercial locations like fitness centers or gyms. We recommend this type for almost any mezzanine intended for public use.

 

The handrail posts are made of 2½”x2 ½”x14GA steel tubing. The support rails are made of 1½”x1 ½”x16GA steel tubes. The Cogan wire mesh panels are made of 2”x2” welded wire mesh and are shop welded to structural steel frames. We fasten the support rails to the handrails with zinc-plated clips. Our design enables the railing to be cut to size on-site and attached without welding. This speeds up installation and reduces cost.
