We had the opportunity to talk to a contractor in Toronto recently who was bidding on a new parking structure, and had some questions for us about composite railings. He had built several of these garages before, and knew he would need railings, and a lot of them. His biggest concern was in the stairwells, where vandalism and theft had been an issue in the past. He told us that anything with any kind of resale value, including steel handrails, was in danger of being stolen from these areas that were not in plain view. He had heard about our composite railings, which are made from recycled plastics, are virtually indestructible, and hold up well in harsh environments. We agreed with him that this would be an excellent choice.
Eco-Friendly Composite Railings in Toronto
Each level of the parking structure would have several different railing applications to address, from the ramps and outside walls, to the protective railings along walkways, and of course the stairwells. The garage would have stairs in two corners and in a central shaft near the elevators. In all, he told us, he would need composite railings for 17 flights of stairs. He was delighted to hear that these railings were environmentally friendly and, since they were made from recycled materials, they were much less likely to be stolen.
When the contractor placed his bid for the project, he noted to his client that he had found a railing solution that was economical, durable and eco-friendly. The client was thrilled with his proposal and awarded him the job almost immediately. At Toronto Railings, we know that each railing job is different and comes with its own unique concerns.
