"Our experience in installing DDA compliant handrails is second to none and thanks to our machining capability and our project management expertise, we were able to turn this around very quickly.” “The nature of the project required us to machine the handrail and be on site within 10 days of order.”"

Haldane has ensured a partially sighted pupil can safely enjoy school life by installing DDA compliant handrails to all stairways in a Scottish School.

Haldane manufactured and installed over 100 linear metres of 50 x 38mm oval handrails with a flat base to accommodate the 90mm accessibility brackets which positioned it 65mm from the wall.

To comply with the DDA regulations the handrails were also stained black to increase visibility against the pale walls and then coated with a hard lacquer for the level of protection required for a school.

To show the stair has reached a landing, the handrail flows into a horizontal at the landing before returning to the wall and to enable the pupil to know what to expect, the horizontal runs for 600mm at the top and only 300mm at the bottom.

Haldane UK’s Managing Director, Forrester Adam, explained “Our experience in installing DDA compliant handrails is second to none and thanks to our machining capability and our project management expertise, we were able to turn this around very quickly.”

He continued, “The nature of the project required us to machine the handrail and be on site within 10 days of order.”
