Guardrail and hand railing must provide safety for years, not just the present. When a hand railing system is installed, there is an expectation of longevity. However, as time passes, potential problems may arise:
• Railing is often exposed to highly corrosive environmental elements.
• Corrosive elements combined with the passage of time can cause structural breakdown
• Once the integrity of the railing is compromised, the railing itself becomes a hazard.
