Heavy-Duty Industrial Railing that Lasts Decades

A corroded and rusted railing is unsafe. The steel Kee Klamp fittings are designed for longevity and strength with hot-dipped galvanization to ensure each connection point remains solid. You can be confident that the railings can last 20 years without showing the least bit of rust, while welded railings typically begin to show rust under two years.

Railing Designed to Fit Your Project

It usually only takes a few measurements, a sketch, and a phone conversation to prevent access to dangerous areas with our safe and effective alternative to welded railing. The guardrail's modular design makes it easy to configure to your exact specifications. Whether you need a pedestrian walkway guardrail or a commercial handrail, we will work with you to design the layout compliant with OSHA and any standards you need.

You have the option to choose from a variety of finishes. Standard railing comes in galvanized steel or aluminum finishes with additional colors in powder-coat finishes.

Install, Expand, and Repair Your Industrial Handrail with Ease

Installation requires no special tools or labor. With the modular design, expanding the railing is just as easy as it is to install. The modular components make it easy to add railing sections or even be repurposed in other areas if plans change.

Repairing the railing is easy. Just loosen the surrounding fittings and replace only the damaged fittings and pipe. A traditional welded railing needs to be completely replaced when damaged and installed by a professional welder.

Industrial Safety Railing FAQs

What is the purpose of an OSHA Handrail?

A guardrail provides a sturdy base of support for stability, safety, and peace of mind. It’s a solution to be used on walkways and stairs to ensure the user has fall protection with balance and support. Guardrail is meant to prevent injury from an accidental or careless fall.

At what height do I need a guardrail to be OSHA compliant?

42 inches is the standard height of guardrails to ensure effectiveness and safety. According to OSHA code, parapets less than 42 inches (give or take 3 inches) require a railing. Should a force of 200 lbs in any downward or outward direction cause the railing to dip below 39 inches, the guardrail is not in compliance. If a parapet or a guardrail that has a top rail, an intermediate rail (or midrail), and supporting posts already in place (not being newly added) at 36 inches or higher, the parapet or guardrail is acceptable under OSHA code 55 Federal Register 13360 due to the possible danger to the workers that would replace the system.In addition, under General Industry's proposed rule on Walking and Working Surfaces (55 Federal Register 13360), guardrail systems with top rails that are 36 inches in height would similarly be

How many pounds of force should a guardrail withstand at a minimum?

Handrails and OSHA compliant guardrail must support a 200-pound force. At any point on the handrail, it must sustain a 200-pound force applied downward or outward in any direction on the top railing. This means that no matter if you’re in the middle of the rail or at the end, 200-pounds of force must be held.

How many components does a guardrail have?

The average guardrail has 3 main parts: the top railing, the middle railing, and the posts along the span of the guardrail. The middle railing is typically halfway between the top rail and the surface the guardrail is over. This formation allows for maximum stability and sturdiness with minimal excess of railing used. Toe-boards or kick plates can be added to prevent objects from falling over the edge of the surface if needed.

How much does an average guardrail cost?

An average guardrail will range between $30 to $80 per linear foot. The price will depend on the quality of metal used, the type of fabrication required, and the length/mass of the unit itself. Because of the weight of most guardrails, shipping expenses are typically an extra fee as well.

Why is guardrail height 42 inches?

Data from 40+ years concludes that guardrail between 39 and 45 inches does not compromise a person’s safety. Should a preexisting guardrail be 36 inches or taller, the guardrail is grandfathered into code compliance due to the danger of replacing it.

What is standard railing?

Another term for guardrail is standard railing. Guardrail is a railing system compromising of a top rail, intermediate rail, and posts spanning the length of the rail. It must reach a height of 42 inches (give or take 3 inches) as well as sustain a force of 200 lbs in any downward or outward direction in order to be compliant with OSHA code.

How many steps require a handrail according to OSHA?

According to OSHA code 1926.1052(c), four or more risers, or stairways rising more than 30 inches (whichever is less), requires at least one handrail between 30 and 37 inches from the surface of the stair tread.

How many steps can you have without a handrail?

3 steps or less, or less than 30 inches. According to OSHA code 1926.1052(c), four or more risers or rising more than 30 inches, whichever is less, requires at least one handrail. Unprotected edges of a stairway require a stair rail system.

Are handrails required on both sides of the stairs to meet OSHA code?

A single handrail on one side of a stairway is required for stairs with 4 or more steps. If the stairway has unprotected edges, stair rail systems are required with the top rail at 42 inches from the top of the stair tread.

Can a stair rail system also serve as a handrail?

Per OSHA code 1926.1052(c)(7), stair rail systems can also serve as a handrail but require the top rail to be not more than 37 inches in height and not less than 36 inches from the top of the stair tread. Per OSHA code 1910.29(f)(1)(iii)(A), stair rail systems can also serve as a handrail but require the top rail to be not more than 38 inches in height and not less than 36 inches from the top of the stair tread.

Why Use Modular Railing Systems?

Prefabricated guardrails from Simplified are designed to exceed OSHA standards. There is no need to think about whether the solution fits the problem because the height, strength, and upright spacing all meet the OSHA standard. Stop thinking about it, we've got you covered.
