Imagine what would happen if all the bars in the world disappeared at the same time. It would be a global disaster. Everyone would fall on a railing, whether they were on the edge of the porch, on a deck overlooking the ocean, or on a cliff at the Grand Canyon. Children stagger from balconies and the disabled and the elderly can be trapped on stairs.
While many of us use handrails every day, we generally don't think about its importance to safety. The railings seem to complete the design of our balconies and terraces and are a convenient place to hang flower beds, lamps or banners. We like to rely on them, but we often find it natural that our grids are sturdy, strong and the right size. So today we are here to remind you of the importance of grids to safety.
