The 50 mm Sleeved Handrail System is a modular, cast steel, component system. It is ideal for use in environments where pedestrian areas and walkways are adjacent to vehicle routes e.g. car parks, service areas and loading bays. It can be used to define pedestrian walkways and channel foot traffic away from vehicle routes.

Yellow rail sleeves provide greater visual contrast for both pedestrian and vehicle traffic, helping to further segregate one from the other. The sleeves also help to provide additional handrail grip; it is comfortable to use and provides a smooth hand transition in line with the guidelines in Building Regulations 2010 Approved Documents K and M and BS 8300-2:2018.

The system includes top rails, mid rails and upright posts that are supplied pre-assembled as mid, end and corner posts. The 42 mm Galvanized Handrail System can be specified as a sleeveless alternative.
