Materials for the guardrail

Attention should be paid to the NBR 14,718 which lays down the rules for various types of guardrails in homes and commercial establishments. There are also models of concrete, PVC, stainless steel and wood.

The guardrail must be at least 1m high from the ground to ensure safety. The models of railings of type gradil, should have the maximum distance of 110mm between the profiles. This ensures the safety of children. Even so, for those who have pets, it may be recommended to install protective grilles to avoid any kind of accident.
There are still other requirements regarding bodyguard anchorage that must follow the rules so that it has a secure fix and performance.
Always rely on the advice of a professional to design and install the guardrail in its construction.
