We have taken one of our standard components and updated it dimensionally to meet current Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) and International Building Code (IBC) requirements.
This new design matches the one we have used for this style cast aluminum and stainless steel bracket. Until now, we have not had this design available for our cast, ductile iron, wall-mount handrail bracket.
The ADA and IBC require a clearance of 1-1/2″ minimum between the wall and the handrail and a clearance of 1-1/2″ minimum between the underside of the handrail and the horizontal bracket arm.
There is an exception for the vertical clearance—for each 1/2″ of additional perimeter dimension above 4″, the vertical clearance dimension of 1-1/2″ shall be reduced by 1/8″.
These wall-mount handrail brackets are available with a projection of 2-1/2″ or 3-1/4″ between the wall and the center of the handrail. Choice of wall-mount handrail bracket will vary depending on the size of the handrail and the clearance requirement. Please note that NFPA 101 has a minimum clearance requirement between the wall and handrail of 2-1/4″—use the 3-1/4″ to center wall-mount handrail bracket to avoid challenges by the fire marshal.
To view pricing and availability on these new Traditional Style Wall-Mount Handrail Brackets, go to our e-commerce site.
The original bracket will only be available while supplies last. Once inventory is depleted, they will no longer be available. If you have this bracket in-use in the field, you may want to consider buying some stock should you ever need to replace existing work. You can view availability on the original design at our e-commerce site.
