Commercial property owners know the value (and requirement) of quality railings at their office properties. You need to keep your tenants safe by preventing slip and falls accidents; and you need to keep your office buildings up to code. Finally, high quality aluminum railings add an element of style and a quality finishing touch to the appearance of your building.

The Benefits of an Elevated Style
Architects and designers, property owners and property managers, real estate agents and flippers, your office tenants… everyone appreciates the elevated style our aluminum railings bring to a building.
By improving the exterior “curb appeal” of your property, you increase it’s value overall, and you increase the potential rents you can charge future lessees. Prospective tenants will appreciate a quality aluminum railing, and visiting insurance agents and building code inspectors will appreciate them too.

Commercial Building Codes & Railings
This blog is meant to be educational, informative and design-inspirational about our aluminum railings & office applications. We are not claiming this blog to be an authority on building code topics.
However we would like to share with you some common railing codes that may apply to you. Again, code varies locally, so be sure to contact us if you have questions that go beyond the scope of this article.
Most cities and communities don’t have their own specific building codes. They adapt them from larger government and international codes. Generally speaking most railings at office spaces must follow these guidelines:
- They must have a shape and dimensions that are easy to grasp.
- The ends must not present any projection hazards or sharp points.
- Ability to handle a 200 pound load applied outward or downward.
- Minimum clearance between handrails and other objects is 2.25 inches.
- Most railings at commercial locations must be 42″ in height.
All of our aluminum railing products will meet the standard international building codes like these.
