Whether as part of a feature staircase or simply as a stand alone item, handrail systems play an important role both in safety and aesthetics (form & function). Two Point Seven Facades Ltd ensure bespoke handrail creations enhance the overall design.
Handrails on staircases, ramps and around voids are required as Part K of the Building Regulations. Two Point Seven Facades Ltd can design your project using Architect or staircase manufacturers drawings or from a site survey, to meet your design requirements. Be it aluminium or stainless steel.
Alphastrut® handrails are the stylish and corrosion resistant aluminium handrails perfect for use in the commercial and industrial property sectors.
Made from high grade aluminium extrusions, Alphastrut handrails were designed to be quick to install and adaptable enough to work in settings ranging from handrails in office buildings to safety rails in chemical plants. Offering superior corrosion resistance to stainless steel.
Alphastrut aluminium balustrades offer a range of financial and practical benefits that make them the perfect handrail choice for a wide variety of projects.
Adaptability - they were developed to be adaptable enough to fit any layout and can provide an unbroken rail even around corners and when used as a handrail in stairwells.
Cost - Alphastrut materials are cost competitive against stainless steel and composite handrails, with the additional financial benefits of quick fit-out times helping to make it an even more attractive option.
Simple installation - Alphastrut handrails were designed to be quick to fit, whether used for new developments or retrofit work. They have a fully bolted and clamped design, with no obstructive fixings on the rails and fully adjustable connection details for stair and wall fixing. No welding is needed, the aluminium can be cold cut on site with no cut end treatment required, unlike stainless steel.
Improved site safety - manual handling is much easier with Alphastrut handrails than with steel handrails, as aluminium is significantly lighter than steel. The lack of requirement for hot works further reduces risk.
Strength - Aluminium has an excellent strength to weight ratio, meaning Alphastrut handrails are as strong as steel handrails despite being significantly lighter. Alphastrut’s properties also mean the balustrades will keep their structural integrity when struck by an external force and any damage will be picked up by a simple visual inspection.
Corrosion resistance - Alphastrut handrails benefit from exceptional corrosion resistance and have a long lifespan in both internal and external settings. They do not require painting for external use and can cope with aggressive environments in which more expensive stainless steel handrails are often specified, such as ports and factories.
Aesthetically pleasing - while Alphastrut aluminium handrails have a wide range of technical and practical benefits, they were also designed to be stylish enough for use in commercial buildings. If required, they can be supplied powder coated in a standard RAL colour.
100% recyclable - Alphastrut handrails are made from 100% recyclable materials, so will fit with any environmental policy.
Sustainability - Aluminium is far more abundant in the Earths crust than stainless steel. Making it a far more sustainable option.
