A two part system comprising of the Guardian 50 mm Diameter Handrail uppermost, underslung with either a 125 or 200 mm deep protection rail (on a solid MDF or aluminium core) incorporating a two part fixing spacer complete with stainless steel posts. The product is ideal for areas where a solid protection rail is required to protect walls from wheeled and motorized trolleys and carts whilst a handrail support is also required for use by pedestrians. With the protection rail standing slightly forward of the handrail, dual capability of this product helps to reduce maintenance and repainting costs by eliminating the damage that can be caused to the lower level of walls as well as the upper handrail. The rigid PVC-U rails do not harbour the growth of bacteria if cleaned regularly and are available in an array of colours with matching or contrasting accessories.
