Pur Patio offers an array of guardrails exceeding safety standards
Guardrails, railings or balustrades
A strong guardrail for adequate protection
Railings are a primary concern when considering safety on a patio. A patio guardrail must comply with safety standards as well as city by-laws.
Building a railing compliant with height standards is rather simple. Generally, the height of terrace balustrades varies between 36 and 48 in. depending on the height of the patio and on the presence or not of a pool.
In order to be strong and safe, a balustrade must be secured to the structure of a wooden patio.
A good contractor, specialized in the construction of wooden patios, designs the structure of the terrace so it will provide the necessary support to fasten the railings.
Aluminium is a strong material ensuring a sturdy guardrail
Aluminium is increasingly used in the construction of patios, mainly for producing guardrail pickets.
Careful attention must be given to isolating aluminum components from wood or cedar elements in order to avoid oxydation.
