FRP Hand Railing Components and Complete Systems from Fiberman
Falls represent one of the most pressing dangers in industrial environments, with serious injury or worse a lightly outcome. In challenging environments such as WWTP, livestock facilities or chemical processing plants, the added factors of chemical exposure, moisture and degrading surfaces can increase these risks.
FRP Hand Railing from Fiberman has the strength and durability you need in harsh environments. Constructed with high-performance fiberglass pultrusions, these FRP handrails won’t require frequent repainting or replacement. Highly resistant to both alkaline and acidic environments, fiberglass won’t rust like steel, corrode like aluminum, or rot like wood.

Advantages of Fiberglass Handrails & Railing Systems
Our FRP Handrail has been manufactured in a wide variety of applications, and offers these advantages:
Virtually no maintenance is required in fiberglass railing systems featuring molded-in color plus an optional tough polyurethane coating which outlasts aluminum and stainless steel railing systems.
Ease of Assembly
Handrail systems can be either installed on-site with simple carpenter tools or assembled during fabrication and shipped to the site in large sections. All components are lightweight and easy to install, including post and beam sections.
No downtime for repairs in plant operations, ease-of-assembly, and rugged durability make fiberglass handrails a cost-saver on labor and maintenance, resulting in long-term savings.
Our fiberglass handrail systems come in a standard “safety yellow color”, feature low electrical conductivity for worker safety and exhibit high strength. Systems meet federal OSHA standards with a 2:1 factor of safety with a 6-foot (1830mm) maximum post spacing. Our FRP Handrail systems also comply with international standard AFNOR NF E 85-101.
Internal Connection System
The components of FRP handrails all fit together flush, creating a pleasing streamlined appearance. Instead of screwing or bolting together the railing components with exposed fasteners, FRP structural connectors are placed within the cavities of the pultruded shapes. The internal connections allow the construction of continuous handrail systems without special fittings. Because they are encased in fiberglass, the structural connections are also protected from the elements, which further enhances durability.
In addition to the standard polyester resin system, FRP railing systems can come with an industrial grade polyurethane coating for additional protection in outdoor applications.
Polyester is standard for fiberglass handrail systems but FRP hand rails in other resin systems are available upon request.
When considering your FRP hand rail solution, check with Fiberman to ensure it works well with your FRP Ladders, grating and other FRP structures. Fiberman offers FRP design tools to assist you in developing the proper specifications for your FRP hand rail system.
Applications for FRP Hand Railing Products
Fibreglass structures are excellent for harsh environments subject to chemical exposure, such as outdoor walkways on drilling platforms, in WWTP water treatment plants, in livestock facilities and anywhere you require secure and durable walking surfaces. These structures will consistently outperform rust-prone steel structures where moisture is present.

FRP Hand Railing and Radio Frequency Transparency
In today’s connected world, we depend on cellular telephone signals, Wi-Fi networks and over the air radio and television signals. Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity are essential to on-site work environments. Steel structures significantly disrupt these signals. FRP Hand Railing are an essential part of building structures that are “electronically transparent” and do not interfere with radio frequency transmissions.
