Stair Railing Prevents Injury
Modern architecture has it that stairways are designed differently every time. But one essential feature of any
staircase would be the stair railing. We are certain that you have come across stairways that don’t have a
stair railing. If no one got injured climbing those – so far, so good on them, until something
really goes wrong.
While it is stylist to create stair railing-free stairways, it is also dangerous. This applies double stranded
if we are talking about a household that has children or toddlers. If your household is the home for a couple of
teenagers, stair railing-free stairways are once again hazardous because teens never walk slowly. They take
pleasure in running all the way, even when they are not in an absolute hurry. So if you are concerned about the
safety about your children or maybe even an elderly person living with you, it is always a good idea to include a
stair railing in the stairway.
If you own commercial property, once again including a stair railing along the stair way would be somewhat of an
obligation due to workplace safety requirements. If you happen to lease your commercial property to some company
and if one those company employees happen to have an accident due to the stairway not being equipped with a stair
railing, you are most likely to be blamed and to get in to some trouble too.
When it comes to types of stair railings available in the market, you have a wide variety of choices. If you
feel like a stair railing destroys the architectural elegance of your stairway, there are ways and means to get
about it. Although wrought iron stair railings have been in fashion, a few decades back, they have been outdated
from the early 80’s to late 90’s. Nowadays however, you could see the wrought iron trends coming back. The wooden
and shiny aluminum polls are replaced by iron on balconies and stair railings, no matter what people say about
their high maintenance nature.
The sleek, dainty first impression given off by an iron stair railing maybe the reason why many households
prefer iron over, wooden bulky structures, to be standing beside their stairways. On the other hand, you may want
to access the feasibility aspect of installing a stair railing along your stairway. It is no point having a sleek
stair railing, if it cannot be grabbed on to or if it doesn’t provide the correct grip, for a person to avoid an
accident or stay safe.
