The railing has been around for hundreds, if not thousands, of years. After all, you can’t put a price on safety and security. With this said, there are certain places that you can almost expect to find railings installed because they are so important for preventing accidents. Here at Cheshire Metalcraft we believe that railings are a great aesthetic feature however they are also essential for safety too. Here are a handful of railing abundant locations…

Balconies

As a feature that has been around for around longer than people tend to think, the balcony would be incredibly unsafe without a railing in place. After all, people would almost always fall off! Here at Cheshire Metalcraft, we have a range of different balcony railings that are certain to add a new flare to the exterior of your property whilst keeping you safe at the same time.

Staircases

Also known as handrails, the railings around a staircase are there in order to prevent people falling and provide support to those who require it. In fact, some staircases are built in a spiral shape with a gap directly in the centre which means that it is essential for railings to be put in place for the stairs to be deemed fit for use.

Perimeters

Whether you want to secure your garden or neighbourhood park, a perimeter railing can provide aesthetic qualities whilst still serving a functional purpose. After all, they give the feeling of privacy and safety whilst allowing your property to remain welcoming and aesthetically pleasing at the same time. After keeping the same fence for a number of years, and depending on the types of weather conditions that it has endured, it may be time to consider getting it repaired so that it has the same durability.

Roofs

In some buildings it is possible to reach the roof where access is required for maintenance to be carried out. With this said, the roof of a building is hardly a safe place to be which is why perimeter railings can also come in handy in order to prevent accidents from taking place. In fact, some places have gardens and pools on the roof which means that a railing is essential for them to be accessible and fit for use. Moreover, nowadays there are also plenty of workplaces that provide office space on their rooftops. With this in mind, alongside using outdoor privacy panels, installing railings can provide an additional sense of safety and security. After all, it is always better to be safe than sorry.
