Steel Handrails for retail

Designing your retail space can be a never-ending process, and the decisions you make can have a significant impact on whether a customer buys from your store or not.

Your decisions make a huge difference on whether your retail store remains compliant with building regulations too.

That last thing you want is to have to close your store or be fined for not complying with the relevant building legislation.


Whilst a bespoke steel handrail might not be your highest priority when designing your retail space, it is definitely a key component that should not be overlooked or understated.

Whether you are installing a feature staircase, balustrade system, mezzanine platform or a bespoke steel handrail, without question, the most important consideration when installing any of these components is that they are compliant with the relevant legislation.

The provision of adequate stainless steel handrails is a major factor in reducing the likelihood of slips, trips and falls on stairs or walkways. From a purely functional viewpoint, the handrail and glass balustrade system will determine how accessible your retail space is and will have a direct bearing on the health and safety of anyone who uses the building.

The handrail you choose to install in your retail space must be suitable to be used by all types of people, especially those who are physically weak and have a poor grip, especially considering the age range of people that will visit your retail space.

Product Sectors

Glass Staircases for Retail

Depending on the size of the retail space or if you have plans for expansion in the future with the installation of mezzannine floor, a feature glass staircase should be a key component of the layout of your retail store.

Glass Balustrade for Retail

Not sure where to get started with your store layout and retail design? Designing your retail interior is a never-ending process and the choices you make can be the difference between converting a sale or not.

Mezzanine Floors

A mezzanine floor removes the need to move to bigger premises and uses up potentially wasted space in the height of the building.
