Benefits of Fiberglass Reinforced FRP Handrails

FRP handrail systems provide five key benefits in both standard and custom deployments. Your operations will run more smoothly and you’ll likely save money over time thanks to these characteristics.

  1. Multiple Resistances: Almost every major industrial hazard can be addressed with the right combination of coatings and composition.
    • high strength-to-weight ratio
    • corrosion resistant
    • non-sparking
    • non-conducting
    • fire retardant
  2. Significant Safety: Marco Fiberglass’ handrails reinforced with fiberglass are designed to provide your workers with a safe environment. They offer significant strength, low electrical conductivity and are within all OSHA standards. Everything comes in OSHA yellow and has the right post spacing, cages and more.
  3. Low Maintenance: FRP handrails don’t require consistent cleaning, sandblasting, painting or scraping to maintain their protections. You’ll all watch them consistently outlast any metal handrails on your site.
  4. Streamlined and Flush Design: No more snags or caught gloves. Every handrail element is designed to link up flush with other elements, such as ladders and ramps.
  5. Easy to Assemble: Fiberglass handrail systems are lightweight and created to meet standard sizes for posts and railings. We’ll build out custom units or large sections and you can quickly install each without the need for heavy lifting equipment.

Typical FRP Handrail System

FRP handrail systems are offered in one of three system designs by Marco Fiberglass: Heavy Duty Handrail System, our Standard Duty Handrail System and our Light Duty Handrail System.

All systems exceed OSHA requirements for handrail systems. While some provide much stronger resistance to loading conditions, all of Marco Fiberglass’ fiberglass reinforced handrail systems offer corrosion resistance and maintenance free service at a competitive price. Choose from one of these Marco handrail systems, depending on the severity of the service environment.
