Update stainless steel balustrades and handrails to meet regulations

October 24, 2016

Are your stainless steel balustrades and handrails up to current standards? City to Coast Architectural has the expertise and machinery to create stylish and aesthetically pleasing balustrades for your home or commercial property.

Did you know:

  • balustrades must be at least one metre high?
  • any glass used in your balustrading must be toughened glass?
  • decking above one metre in height must have balustrading?
  • there are regulations regarding load capacity for handrails?

As well as height and width regulations, all internal stairs are required to have balustrading and disability ramps must include handrails. These regulations have been updated in recent years, so many of Geelong’s homes built in the 1960s and 1970s are not compliant and need to be upgraded.

Our team specialises in delivering new stainless steel balustrades and handrails that are both safe and complement your existing decor. We also offer feature customisation, including frosted glass for privacy and handrail types ranging from round tubing to a flat bar.

If you are unsure whether your home complies, please contact City to Coast Architectural and ask us about:

  • interior and exterior balustrades
  • moving from old timber to sleek, modern looking handrails
  • designs available, including cables in between or posts with the handrail on top
  • updating internal staircases
  • fitting glass to balustrades and glazing.
