A recent phone call came in from a Toronto retirement home regarding hand railings to help with a remodeling job. The requirements were pretty simple; they needed hand railings down each side of every hallway in the facility to offer more stability to their aging tenants. They wanted the rails to be sturdy and easy to clean, and they knew that stainless steel would probably be the best choice. We took the time to show them several options and listen to their concerns about the safety of their clients. In the end, we agreed that stainless steel would be the right way to go.
Hallway hand railings are required by law in convalescent homes, retirement centers, rehabilitation facilities and hospitals to offer added security to their patients and guests that might not be too steady on their feet. Depending on their specialization, privately run doctors’ offices and clinics may not be required to have hand railings, but most do anyway. The railings have to be durable, resistant to germs and bacteria, and must be mounted at a specific height to satisfy government regulations. This is the kind of knowledge we bring to the table at Toronto Railings.
Hand Railings for Safety and Peace of Mind
It seems like everyone has an aging loved one or friend in one type of facility or another. None of us want to imagine something unfortunate happening to them, especially if it could have been prevented. The required hand railings in medical and convalescent facilities offer a steady, dependable helping hand to clients and, just as important, offer a little peace of mind to those of us who care about them.
At Toronto Railings we want to provide you with the same kind of top-quality materials and know-how that we provided for our friends at the retirement center. You deserve the same level of quality, safety and peace of mind.
