Assistrail® - Disability Handrails AR30, AR40, AR150,

Project Background: 

Frimley School is located on the western side of Hastings and caters for children from Year 1-6.  

With the number of students increasing, the school had outgrown their facilities. There was a major need for extra space to cater for the large number of students and to accommodate for long term growth. In early 2020 the school invested in additional teaching spaces, including a temporary classroom block.

The classroom block required handrail protection on the access ramp and stair.  Moddex supplied our Assistrail AR40, AR30 and AR150 configurations which were available off the shelf for immediate installation.

Why was Moddex product selected?

Through selecting Moddex, the client could guarantee quick lead times. The client had a narrow timeframe for delivery due to the school environment, which meant the work had to be conducted during the school holidays. Our pre-configured, off-the-shelf kitset solution supplied with easy to follow installation drawings, meant the handrails were onsite and ready for the client to install within a week.

Because our handrails are pre-configured, the AR40, AR30 and AR150 handrail systems could fit seamlessly together, whilst still ensuring compliance with the relevant standards. In addition, moddex were able to provide a PS1 to give the client assurance that our handrail system was designed and manufactured in accordance with the building code.
