Architectural Railing Applications (PART 3)

In this third installment, we'll be discussing pool railings, entrance railings and guardrails. 

To view this series from the beginning, refer to previous posts Architectural Railing Applications (PART 1) and Architectural Railing Applications (PART 2).

  • Pool Railings -  Nothing makes a resort or hotel pool area look more finished than beautiful architectural railing outlining the oasis. Although  railing height(s) depend on local building codes, the International Building Code (IBC) requires that all gates feature a locking device and open outward, away from the pool.  Make sure the gates are self-closing and self-latching as well. 
  • Entrance Railings - First impressions are important, so keep this in mind when selecting a handrail for the front of a new structure.  Entrance railings are one the first aspects of a building that visitors see when approaching, so choose wisely.  When done right, they should blend seamlessly with the architectural design.  Entrance railings can also be custom constructed to meet project specifications, in both form and finish.  Speak with your railing manufacturer for more details.
  • Guardrails - Fall protection railings, also known as guardrails, offer safety and security on multi-level structures without compromising the building aesthetic.  Whether you're in need of balcony or guardrail for a newly designed building, or a balcony or guardrail for a retrofit project, your railing manufacturer will ensure whatever you choose is built to your specifications and local building codes.
