At Michigan Specialty Glass, this is one of our specialties and we would would love to talk to you about your needs In the meantime, here are a few tips on making sure the process of installing railings is done in the proper way.
Again, what must be stressed here is that commercial railings are subject to strict requirements for building safety. So, whoever you interview you need to make sure that they are intimately familiar with the codes that are in effect for your community as well as state and federal law. Once you have been assured of that, there are numerous aspects to decide on including what material you want your handrails to be made out of, what style you prefer, height, width and so much more. You also need to take a look at whether you need railings installed outside of your business which will introduce a whole new set of criteria.
