Slips and trips cost UK £1bn per year – Handrails ease access

Slips and trips cost UK £1bn – handrails ease access

According to a recent survey slips and trips cost the UK around £1 billion per year!  Although some occur in the workplace many happen due to bad weather in the winter months and/or uneven and slippy surfaces or steps.

Ease access and improve safety

Handrails and grabrails can help ease access but also can look decorative too.  Safety is the main concern but when you are fitting these to the front of your house you want to make sure they look nice and in keeping with the style of the property. Check out some examples of the handrails we have manufactured and fitted using quality wrought iron on our website here https://sykesbespokesteel.co.uk/domestic-products/hand-rails/

We are also able to manufacture them using quality marine grade stainless steel like this simple design example fitted in Saddleworth

We have also fitted a large number of handrails on commercial properties such as these:

   

Handrail guidance

There is also building regulation guidance about when it is appropriate to fit a handrail.  Below is a simple diagram to show this

This gives clear guidance as to when handrails are necessary and are useful for landlords, property owners, developers and builders.  Basically if there are 3 risers (steps) or more than a handrail should be fitted

So whether you need help getting in and out of the house, have steep steps or just want something decorative we can help.  Our plain wrought iron handrails have a quick turnaround if you have elderly relatives or people coming out of hospital that require them quickly.

If this is something you require, or if you are really not sure what you need, then we offer a free, no obligation site survey and quotation.  Please contact us on 0161 303 7383 or via email at info@sykesbespokesteel.co.uk to discuss this and to arrange a convenient appointment if necessary.
