Versatile bow top railings
Bow top railings are a direct alternative to vertical bar railings. For an attractive yet effective solution which is highly durable yet still affordable, R.M.Smith Fencing Ltd in Hampshire can provide exactly what you want. An excellent choice for schools, playgrounds, parks and swimming pools.
The general construction of metal railings is a 2.75-m-long panel, with two flat bar horizontal rails, and round vertical infill bars. The panels are complete with lugs that bolt to the posts usually constructed from ‘H’ section or square hollow section steel.
If you have a design in mind, it can usually be matched, but generally speaking, the more elaborate the design the more expensive the fence. Railings can be manufactured to account for curves or slopes and can be made to bolt down (perhaps to a wall) or for concreting into the ground. Railings can often look nice on brick piers, and they’ll be made to measure.
All railings can be a galvanised or a galvanised and powder-coated finish to a wide range of standard colours, or to any RAL colour at an extra cost.
To meet the requirements of the British Standard EN 1176 Playground Equipment Specification, we also offer a bow top fencing that is fully compliant. It comprises a 12-mm-diameter infill or a more heavy-duty 16-mm-diameter infill bar, set at centres to not exceed 89mm, thus ensuring there are no neck entrapments. This range is also available in a flat top style and is of course available in the same finishes as standard bow top products.
