Design requirements

Balustrade design and handrail distance

Select the level of the first and last level of the step to set the railing.

Select the horizontal distance between the step pedals and add up the number of pedals, but it is not the last step of the platform.

Using these data to construct a right-angled triangle with the two right-angled sides above, the oblique side of the right-angled triangle is the slope of the railing.

The armrest is parallel to this line at the corresponding height.

Then there is the design of the rest of the platform joint and the bottom of the railing.

The handrail is designed to withstand loads of 50kg/m2 in the horizontal direction. Railings must be made of hard materials and protected to prevent people from falling or falling into the ground.

The railings do not allow an 11cm ball to pass through in the horizontal or vertical direction. The diameter of the balusters is at least 20mm.

The horizontal division of the railings does not allow children to climb over.

The railing with vertical bars in the middle of the stairs is a unique design that provides comprehensive protection for children, from the bottom of the stairs to the top floor. This system creates a special texture that makes the stairs look It looks like it is in a metal lattice.

The use of metal railings is generally attributed to their functionality and low cost, and they can be easily installed on the structure of the stairs using spot welding. By changing the number of metal sticks, the degree of polishing, and the color, the final effect can be unified with any style of interior design.

The shape of the handrail must be controlled by the hand to give a comfortable feeling. Through the cross-section and functional adjustment, the tube with a diameter of 3-5 cm is suitable. The armrest is at least 4 cm away from the wall. If the armrest is a double armrest, the distance between the two armrests must be at least 10 cm.

The railing must be continuous from the ramp of the stairs.

If the corner of the handrail is not made into an arc, then the turning line of the handrail must be on the last level of the rest platform and the kick line of the first step.

The choice of railings of different materials is an important element in dealing with the relationship between the stairs and their surroundings. The choice of material color and the creation of linear continuity between stair sections are key factors in environmental design. The use of transparent elements or rods reduces the visibility of the railing.

Such as an elegant set of glass railings, securely fixed to the stair structure with metal fixtures, the wooden handrails make it look comfortable and safe, and create a certain degree of warmth.

The balcony railing design should adopt a structure to prevent children from climbing. The clearance between vertical bars of the railing should not exceed 0.11m. Falling measures must be taken when placing the flowerpot.
