Standard Balustrades RailingsCommercial structures like office buildings, community halls, schools, shopping malls and business complexes are places where a large number of people assemble at any given point in time. Large crowds lay a stress on the buildings facilities which is the reason why there are different building codes and standards applicable to commercial structures as compared to residential buildings. And this is the main reason why you should use commercial balustrades for a commercial project that is likely to have several people using the space.

Balustrades are constructed to ensure the safety of the people using the stairs, balconies, passages and ramps. The Building Code of Australia lays down the standards for a commercial structure and all builders must comply with them. There are specific codes to be complied with in case of balustrades as well. Accordingly, every staircase must have a balustrade or some type of barrier so that people can move up and down safely. Handrails must also be provided for proper support and grip.

Commercial balustrades are manufactured keeping in mind the heavy usage of the stairs by people moving from one level to another. Sturdy supports and railings are used to build commercial balustrades in keeping with the Australian standards. After all balustrades are meant to provide safety to the users.

Public spaces are used by all types of people including those with disabilities. Commercial balustrades must be built to comply with the standards set out for ease of access by disabled people. Therefore it makes good sense to set up commercial balustrades for an office building or shopping mall or any other public place in Australia.
