The Importance of a Good Railing

By Martin Hart on Thu 05 March 2020

We hope you've all had a brilliant Christmas and that you're all well and rested and readying yourself for the New Year. After your break for the festive holidays you may have already started back at work, fine tuning your manufacturing processes or perfecting your hardware stock. So, while you're busy thinking of new ways you can entice your customers in 2016, we thought we'd take this moment to talk to you about the importance of railings in your workplace. 

It's not every day that you think about the railings in your workplace, however, after such a busy month your railings might have taken a beating and are now substantially weaker than they were previously. Depending on where you work, you might not even have railings in your building.
How Important are Railings?
When you're running around your business, jogging up and down stairs empty handed or laden down with products in need of shipping, it's important to take as much care as possible. Not only because there's a great risk of tripping down said stairs (or balconies or ramps) but because the load you may be carrying with you may could suffer from a fall as well. If your products don't break on impact, then they might very well cause further injury to you, your employees or your guests.

It may not seem like a lot, but a guardrail, stair rail or handrail placed in your workplace could be the difference between a productive, accident free warehouse or office, and a potentially dangerous accident.


How Can a Railing Help Your Workplace?

A strategically placed railing can help with more than just the safety of your workplace. They give you a sense of security when you're using stairs, ramps or balconies which can have a greatly positive impact on your confidence when carrying out basic jobs.

Aesthetically, railings can help to ground your workplace, drawing attention to the different levels of a room and their possibly unique features, as well as highlighting where caution should be taken.
