Standard Vertical Bar railings are fabricated from square hollow section (SHS) posts and solid vertical infill bars along with flat bar horizontal rails. The tops of the infills can be blunt, domed or pointed. They are compliant with the current British Standard, which is covered in BS1722 part 9. Our range of Standard Vertical Bar railings make an ideal secure boundary fence at heights of up to 2 metres.
Alternatively, lower height railings can be manufactured to be wall mounted into diamond cored holes or base plated to surface of brickwork. They are galvanised to BS EN ISO 1461 as standard and can be finished in a polyester powder coated colour of your choice.
