GRP Handrails

GRP handrails are an extremely durable and cost-effective alternative to steel, and they are ideal for industrial and commercial applications. One area where the enhanced performance of our handrails can be measured quickly, and easily is with a simple touch. Our GRP handrails are warm to the touch and aesthetically pleasing. This is an important factor to consider for handrails that are being used in outdoor contexts. They can be comfortably used all year round, irrespective of weather conditions.

Our Modular GRP Handrail System is suited for applications such as staircases, work platforms, walkway handrails, and guardrails. Due to the high-strength properties of our GRP Handrails, they are also ideal for use to protect and identify hazardous storage areas. Non-conductive, non-corrosive, and maintenance-free, our handrails are ideal for use outdoors and in highly corrosive areas. Relinea GRP handrails will not chip, peel, or flake meaning zero maintenance. 

In addition, our handrails outperform their conventional steel, aluminium, and wooden counterparts across all key criteria:

  • High strength-to-weight ratio
  • Low maintenance costs
  • Low installation costs
  • Corrosion resistance
  • Non-conductive
  • Fire-retardant

Handrail components are produced in lightweight fibreglass sections that are easy to transport and handle. Our modular handrail systems can be prefabricated at our manufacturing facility and delivered to site for a simple and easy installation using standard hand tools, saving you time and money. 

Our range extends from fully fabricated systems to budget solutions with top or side fix stanchions. All our Handrail Systems are manufactured to BS EN ISO14122-3:2001 and BS5395-1-2010. 

Our DDA Compliant Handrail is designed to comply with part M of the building requirements. With an inherent ‘warm to touch feel,’ TouchSafe is a long-lasting, modular GRP handrail solution for stairs, ramps & walkways. Find out more HERE
