Hollaender® Handrail Systems Double as Skateboard Deterrent
Hollaender Manufacturing offers two solutions to meet increasing demand from schools, churches, local government and various other institutions for a low maintenance, skateboard deterrent handrail system.
At a minimum skateboarding wreaks havoc on the finish of handrail systems, but it’s also a safety and liability issue. In many cases, the solutions designed to protect handrails are as unattractive as the damaged surfaces. The aesthetically appealing new stop can be retrofitted on installed or existing systems, or can be specified with new handrail systems. It installs directly and simply into the top rail of the smooth, internal fitting based system with a self-threading, self-tapping screw.
The long-lasting aluminum stops are manufactured from aluminum alloy 6063-T6 and are available with an architectural mill finish, or can be clear anodized or powder coated.
Interna-Rail is available in three finish options - mill, anodized, or powder coat, while Speed-Rail is offered in a mill or anodized finish and is available in a full spectrum of attractive colors, including safety colors.
Speed-Rail and Interna-Rail systems install quickly, securely and cost effectively, especially when compared to welded and other more complex systems. In addition, non-specialized workers can easily install either system. Full engineering support is available, as well as on-site installation support, if required.
