Fiberglass Handrail Systems

Marco’s HandRail Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic (FRP) Handrail Systems are safe, OSHA compliant, corrosion resistant, virtually maintenance free, and easy to install. Our standard industrial handrail is a 2-rail system with kickplate fabricated from its high strength pultruded structural shapes with UV inhibitors manufactured into the resin and synthetic surfacing veils that allow a resin rich surface. Standard systems are produced in safety yellow, with other colors available upon request.

Handrails are available prefabricated and factory assembled or can be shipped in components for easy on site field fabrication. A factory applied UV coating is recommended when handrails will be utilized outdoors.

Select the Version That Suits Your Specifications

In industrial applications, you need to be concerned with providing safety and protection for your workers. Including strong and resistant handrails along your stairs, work platforms and walkways adds to the safety of your facility and helps you meet legal requirements. Opt for our FRP handrail and guardrail systems that combine durability, flexibility and practical design. We have four different versions available:

  • Light-Duty: Our light-duty railing is an affordable choice where a simple handrail will suit. We use a mix of square and round tubes for our light-duty handrail systems for the best value and ease of installation. The top rail design includes a 1 5/8” x 3/16” square tube with square posts and round mid rail tubes.
  • Standard-Duty: Our most common railing covers the bulk of needs for industrial settings. You get strong, sturdy 2” x 1/4” posts that resist bending, topped with the same size top rail for a comfortable grip. Our flexible standard-duty FRP components are resistant to wear, temperature extremes and chemicals.
  • Heavy-Duty: For more extreme applications, choose our heavy-duty FRP handrail systems. The posts, top rail and mid rail are all made from the same strong 2” x ¼” fiberglass material for increased resistance to flexing and bending. Our heavy duty FRP handrail components also allow for fast and easy installation.
  • Ergonomic Oval: Our ergonomic series of fiberglass reinforced plastic handrails are best suited to those locations where there’s a lot of pedestrian passage. The comfortable and ergonomic oval tube encourages pedestrians to hold onto the railing for safer walking along walkways and climbing up and down stairs.
