SAFRAIL™ Fiberglass Handrail Systems

SAFRAIL™ fiberglass handrails are industrial/commercial railing systems for stair rails, platform/walkway handrails and guardrails. SAFRAIL™ systems are fabricated from pultruded fiberglass components produced by Strongwell and molded thermoplastic connectors. SAFRAIL™ systems are particularly well-suited to corrosive environments like those found in industrial, chemical and wastewater treatment plants as well as commercial structures with urban and salt air corrosion.

Advantages of Fiberglass Handrail System

SAFRAIL™ is the result of more than 40 years of experience in the manufacture, design and fabrication of fiberglass handrail systems. SAFRAIL™ systems offer these advantages:

safrail connections

Ease of Assembly
SAFRAIL™ is produced in lightweight standard sections that include both post and rail. Systems can be prefabricated in large sections and shipped to the site or fabricated and installed on-site with simple carpenter tools.

Internal Connection System
All connections fit flush, resulting in a pleasing, streamlined appearance. The internal connections allow the construction of continuous handrail systems without special fittings.

Safety Features
SAFRAIL™ systems come in a “safety yellow color”, feature low electrical conductivity for worker safety and exhibit high strength. Systems meet federal OSHA standards with a 2:1 factor of safety with a 6-foot (1830mm) maximum post spacing. SAFRAIL™ systems also comply with international standard AFNOR NF E 85-101.

Low Maintenance
Molded-in color plus an optional tough polyurethane coating will outlast aluminum or steel systems and requires virtually no maintenance.

Cost Effective
Fiberglass components and an easy-to-assemble design provide savings on labor and maintenance, resulting in long-term savings and eliminating the cost and inconvenience of "downtime for repairs" in plant operations.

UV Coating
An industrial grade polyurethane coating may be applied to the finished handrail and/or ladder and cage for additional protection in outdoor applications. Standard SAFRAIL™ handrail systems are unpainted; the polyurethane UV coating must be requested when ordered.

Resin Systems
Polyester is standard for the SAFRAIL™ handrail system but other resin systems are available upon request.

Colors
SAFRAIL™ handrail and ladder systems are produced in a standard safety yellow color. Other colors are available upon request.

Shapes
SAFRAIL™ handrail and ladder systems are produced with your choice of standard round and square rails.

Square Handrail
The square fiberglass handrail system is ideal for any high traffic area where handrail is needed. The handrail system meets OSHA strength requirements with a 2:1 factor of safety with 6-foot maximum post spacing. Internally bonded fiberglass connectors result in no visible rivets or metal parts. The handrail system includes a UV inhibitor for additional resistance to ultraviolet degradation and corrosion.  The square handrail system is the most commonly used system because it is the most economical industrial handrail and easily fabricated in the field.

Round Handrail
The round fiberglass handrail system is ideal for any high traffic area where handrail is needed. The round rails are easy to grip and 90º molded corners eliminate sharp edges. The handrail system meets OSHA strength requirements with a 2:1 factor of safety with 5-foot maximum post spacing. Internally bonded fiberglass connectors result in no visible rivets or metal parts. The handrail system includes a UV inhibitor for additional resistance to ultraviolet degradation and corrosion. The round handrail system is commonly used in food and agricultural environments due to very little dust and debris accumulation.

Custom Fiberglass Handrail Systems
Strongwell’s custom fiberglass handrail systems are designed to fit a wide variety of applications and, because they are standard systems, to be cost effective. However, custom handrail systems are available to suit special needs. Following are some examples of custom handrail from Strongwell.

Custom Colors
SAFRAIL™ is typically produced in the standard "safety yellow" color. However, other colors can be customized to your project.

This manufacturing plant chose a white SAFRAIL™ handrail system in order to maintain the beauty of the area as well providing safety.

Landry’s - Houston
A safety rail system designed for Landry’s Restaurants, Inc.’s Downtown Aquarium in Houston, Texas used SAFRAIL™, EXTREN® Series 525 beams and channels, and DURADEK® I-6000 1” grating.

Landry's Restaurant features huge saltwater aquariums and corrosion, strength and maintenance were all concerns. Strongwell's FRP products were the obvious choice!

Heavy Duty Handrail
A heavy duty handrail system that uses 2" x 1/4" EXTREN® square tube built to
ASTM F-1092-98 specifications is also available for applications requiring added stiffness for less deflection under normal loading.

Vertical Handrail
Strongwell designed a vertical rail system for the Indianapolis Wastewater Treatment plant that used less material and therefore, was more cost effective than conventional horizontal aluminum or fiberglass handrail systems. The custom handrail was built to meet requirements that spacing between rails be less than 6".
