The Rockford Memorial Hospital in Rockford,Ill. needed a handrail system designed to keep patrons off a dangerous section of the roof. They did not want to install the system directly into the roof, yet it needed to withstand the proper weight and force. Also, due to the constant presence of children near the rail it needed to be built with spaces small enough to prevent children from climbing under or through the rail.
The Ideal Shield Solution
With the help of Sam Furman of Furman De:Signs, we designed and manufactured a custom anodized aluminum handrail system mounted on steel sled-mounts, The sled mounts provided the weights and strength to withstand children climbing on it and allowed for an installation that did not include penetrating the roof membrane. The system also featured a railing design that deterred patrons from climbing through, over or around the rail.
