HANDRAILS HOT DIPPED GALVANISED
Our hot dipped galvanised handrails are fabricated right here in Brisbane and are the most popular by far in terms of longevity and durability. This type of handrail is commonly used for disability standards 1428.1-2009. The corrosion resistance of these handrails is fantastic as the zinc acts as a barrier between the steel and the atmosphere making it an ideal handrail for outdoor applications. Hot dipped galvanising is the process of coating steel with a layer of zinc by immersing the metal in a bath of molten zinc at a temperature of around 449 °C. This protection prevents rust and gives the metal a sparkly “spangle” look.
When welding hot dipped galvanised steel, caution must be exercised. Unqualified Tradesman who do not exercise the correct control measures when welding can inhale the toxins which can cause metal fume fever. We have implemented safety procedures when welding our handrails onsite and this ensures that our Welders are kept safe.
On a weekly basis we install hot dipped galvanised handrails in:
- Childcare Centres
- Nursing Homes
- Shopping Centres
The most common practice of installation is to wall mount or dyna bolt the handrails to an opposing surface; generally concrete. The other common practice is to core drill them into a solid concreted surface. Although not common, we can also provide a system that can be installed yourself. Care must be taken with this however as there are standards that must be met and adhered to.
