The Gradus CHR160 combination rail combines a handrail and a wall guard element in a single profile providing protection against impact from wheeled traffic whilst offering a comfortable grip to give reassuring pedestrian support and guidance.
The CHR160 is a modular system comprising an aluminium retainer, PVC-u cover and PVC-u accessories including returns, inside and outside corners and brackets (an anti-ligature retainer option is also available - see drawing above right). The easy-to-clean PVC-u covers and accessories are through-coloured and textured to conceal the effects of impact and abrasion and can be replaced in the event of damage caused by impact. The accessories feature closed slots to ensure they remain in place in the event of impact and are supplied with black reveals in an anti-bacterial finish to provide neat, smooth joints.
The handrail element of the CHR160 features a 38mm diameter and incorporates a thumb groove to offer a comfortable grip in line with guidance, whilst the PVC-u covers and accessories are available in 32 colour options to allow visual contrast to be achieved (note: the CHR1603 mounting bracket is supplied in the colour 002 Gravel only).
