Galvanised Balustrade For A Ramp
Monday, July 19, 2021
In recent years there has been a trend away from getting older people going into aged care facilities. Rather they have been encouraged to stay in their own home as long as possible and receive at-home-care.
To enable this to happen it is important that their home is as safe as possible, with one of the major issues being trip and fall hazards.
A major fall hazard on many older homes is the entry to the house, where it is not uncommon to have steps that are required to be negotiated to enter/exit the front door.
The easiest way to correct this issue is to install a balustrade so that the person has something to support them when negotiating the steps.
We have a range of galvanised pipe and fittings
that can be easily installed to create a balustrade that will reduce the chance of a trip or fall occurring.
You can see in the photos below the result of a job that one of our customers installed on a house. The pipe (handrail) was painted a neutral creme colour to blend into the home, but the fittings were kept un-painted.
For balustrade in this type of situation we recommend using our 42mm diameter pipe and fittings
, but we also have the same products in 27mm, 34mm, 48mm and 60mm.
All of these items can be found in our online shop
