Structural base socket where side fitting is required to stairs, ramps & platforms. The socket is a pinch fit, so when the anchor bolts are tightened, it holds post firmly in place.
Note: A post will fit into the post base and should be secured using our M10 bolt with washers and nut.There are no pre moulded indents to show where the holes are to be drilled so they can be drilled at any convenient postion using a 10mm HSS drill bit. The pre moulded holes that are used to connect the base foot to the supporting structure are 13mm dia to take M12 bolts. The type of anchor bolts used should be suitable for the supporting substrate/structure and is down to the customer to verify for themselves that suitable bolts meet with their requirements .Care is needed not to over tighten the anchor bolts which could cause the fitting to crack. We would advise spacer washers between the bolt head and the fiutting to prevent any deformation of the fitting.
GRP Pultruded lends itself perfectly to be used as a handrailing solution due to it being strong, durable, and warm to the touch in cold conditions in comparison to metal handrails. The lightweight nature of fibreglass clamps and handrails ensures they are easy to move to (and around) site. They are a perfect solution if you require a permanent handrailing or barrier solution. Modular GRP handrailing can be fitted with non-specialised tools enabling quick installation but it also has other key strengths such as being non-corrosive, UV resistant and is low maintenance.
