FRP Handrail Systems & Stair Rail Systems


We manufacture FRP handrail systems and stair rail systems in a wide range of designs for customer convenience. Our systems work best in corrosive environments, such as chemical processing plants, wastewater treatment plants, and other corrosive environments. We modify the design of our railing for architectural railing solutions. So, you can find our railing in a variety of public spaces, such as aquariums, marinas, hotels, and more! We offer handrail systems as horizontal and inclined. They can also be in two and three rail system or done with custom designs. In addition, we design a post for side mounting, top base mounting, or removable socket mounting.

The Design

We design our FRP handrail systems to withstand a load of at least 200 pounds applied in any direction. Most noteworthy, at any point on the rail which exceeds the requirement of OSHA 1910.23. Our system consists of 2” x 2” x ¼” thick pultruded square tube for the post. The connected rails use 1 ½” x 1 ½” solid bar and 1 ½” round tube. These are mechanically fastened using ¼” diameter stainless steel spring pins. The height of the top rail is 42” above the walking surface and includes a 4” toe plate. Also, railing systems are available in vinyl ester and polyester, fire-retardant resin systems in a yellow, safety color.

Industrial Fiberglass Handrails

Kenway adds to fiberglass reinforced plastic handrails with our top quality resin systems. For the reason that we want to have the best UV resistance performance in the industry. Many factors impact the life expectancy of a composite handrail system. For outdoor applications, UV degradation is a significant consideration. The engineering staff at Creative Pultrusions uses their ultraviolet, stable, bright yellow, fire-retardant resin system because it outperforms all other systems in the pultrusion industry.

For additional UV resistance, we apply a secondary UV protective coat to the fiberglass reinforced plastic handrails.

Our fiberglass handrails and stair rail systems are reliable, corrosion resistance, non-conductive, lightweight, UV resistant, and low maintenance!  Each system is factory assembled, so it is ready for easy on-site installation!
