What are the ADA requirements for staircase railings?

There are many different aspects that must be taken into consideration, which is why it is best to leave the job to the experts to ensure that you will not have to worry about any elements of your railing that may later end up having been installed wrong by inexpert installers. For instance, ADA railings that are installed on a wall must be at least 1.5 inches from the wall, to make sure that a hand cannot be caught between the railing and the wall. In addition, they must be installed securely on the wall so that they will not wobble, with at least 300 lbs of pressure able to be applied on them. Obviously, this is enough to reasonably ensure that the railing can safely save anyone who falls and needs to grasp at the handrail to keep from taking a tumble down the stairs.

Another aspect of the ADA requirements for staircase railings is that they must be curved at the ends so that a purse or jacket will not catch on them as someone enters the staircase to go up or down the stairs. This is an obvious point once it is mentioned, but designers who are not worrying about ADA requirements may be likely to add ornamental elements to the staircase railing which will ultimately fail at this requirement. With other designers, you may have to choose between style and ADA compliance. At Linmoore Fencing, you will not need to worry about this, as we have a wide selection of beautiful railing designs which are completely ADA compliant, and which are also aesthetically pleasing and stylish. Whether you are looking for an intricate, ornamental style, a sleek and minimalistic style, something quirky and unique, or any other style at all, we can provide what you are looking for at Linmoore Fencing, with our ADA compliant staircase railings.

Of course, all ADA railings must be completely sturdy, and if you are going to invest in an ADA railing you are going to want it to last for a very long time. Some people in the Sacramento, CA area choose wooden railings because they are less expensive up front, not thinking about the longevity of their investment. However, wrought iron staircase railings will hold up to long-term use much better than wooden railings will, as they will not become wobbly like wood will, and they will never split, weaken, or break the way wood is likely to do. Therefore if you are looking to invest in an ADA railing for your Sacramento, CA home or business, the obvious choice for sturdiness, style, and long-lasting durability is a wrought iron ADA railing from Linmoore Fencing.
