Wrought Iron Commercial Hand Rails

Handrails are essential for complying with ADA, OSHA, IBC,... and local building codes. Our experts will build a handrail to your specifications that suits the architectural style of your home or business.

ADA Handrail Manufacturer

ADA Railings and Handrails are designed to satisfy the requirements of ADA, ICC, IBC, and other building codes. They can be easily assembled without welding or threading components. The railing systems are made of wrought iron  or pipe are easily powder coated with your choice of colors.

1 - Handrails are required for both sides of stairs, ramps or walking surfaces to prevent falls.

Handrails should be used in all staircases with two or more risers, and also on ADA ramps with a rise greater than 6 inches.

ADA handrails are designed to keep people as safe as possible on stairs or ramps by being placed between 34 inches and 38 inches above the leading edge of a stair tread, ramp surface, or walking surface. The height of children’s handrails is between 9 inches and 28 inches with a clear space of at least 9 inches between the children’s rail and the adult rail.

Handrail must be continuous along the full length of each flight or run. There are exceptions to this rule, such as with switchbacks and doglegs. The handrails must not be obstructed at any point, and must not be obstructed for more than 20% of their length.

2 - Make sure that the handrail of a staircase is graspable and comfortable to the touch.

  • The handrail must measure between 1-¼ inch to 2-inch in diameter and be a round shape. It can also have shapes other than round, but it must meet the ADA's definition of Equivalent graspability.

  • To keep the handrail of a staircase graspable, the circumference must not exceed 4-inches and 6-1/4 inches with a maximum cross section of 2-1/4".

  • Handrails are necessary at certain heights and widths to prevent falls. For example, a 2-1/4-inch handrail will only give you 1-1/2 inch square.

3 - Bracket Clearance

  • Handrail must be between 1-¼ inch to 2-inch diameter. Shapes, other than round, are permissible if they meet the ADA’s definition of Equivalent graspability.
  • Equivalent graspability is defined as a handrail with a perimeter dimension between 4-inches and 6-1/4 inches. The maximum cross section must be less than 2-1/4 inches.
  • Be aware that the cross-section limitation refers to the widest point in the handrail. A 2-1/4-inch cross-section will only give you about 1-1/2-inch square.

4 - Make sure to install handrail extension

  • Ramps: There is a 12-inch minimum handrail that extends past the top and bottom of the ramp run. It is extremely important to make sure your ramp complies with this safety requirement.

  • Stairs Top: A 12 inch minimum extension starts immediately above the first riser on both sides, ensuring your safety as you go up and down.
  • Stairs bottom: handrail should extend at the slope of the stair flight for a horizontal distance equal to one tread depth.

Extension rails should be attached to a wall or guard and will continue onto the next stairway.

Make sure to have a handrail in the correct direction of travel so that people can navigate with ease. Extensions sometimes bend left or right, which could be problematic for users.

Handrails are usually not permitted to deviate from the direction of travel, but when they do, it is only possible for existing construction where there is a hazard risk.
