Design & Materials

Interclamp handrail fittings are made from malleable iron manufactured in conformance with BS EN 1562:2012, a dependable and well proven material for this type of product. The fittings are hot-dipped galvanised to BS EN ISO 1461:2009, giving a durable corrosion resistant finished surface for extended life. A secondary additional coating is then applied over the top of the galvanising, to enhance further the corrosion protection and to offer a premium quality, aesthetically pleasing appearance. High quality stainless steel setscrews, which are specified in the optimal size for each size range, contribute significantly to the high structural integrity of the Interclamp fitting. To obtain optimal setscrew slip loads, the setscrew should be tightened to 40Nm, for which a ratchet wrench may be necessary.

Sustainability

In order to help meet ever more stringent building codes for sustainability in new home construction and commercial developments, we are pleased to confirm that the core Interclamp handrail range contains a very high percentage of recycled materials. Additional information is available on request. Furthermore, when the product eventually comes to its end of life, it can easily be recycled globally via local waste metal recovery facilities.
