HEWI Nylon Balustrade

Ideal for heavy traffic environments

Our Nylon handrails are made of 5mm thick solid high quality polyamide sleeves coloured throughout in 15 available colours with a corrosion resistant steel core.

The HEWI nylon system is the ideal material for high traffic environments such as hospitals, care homes and public buildings thanks to the steel core giving it structural strength and flexibility.

Typical Applications

Educational establishments, hospitals, residential care homes and public buildings with areas of high pedestrian traffic.

Standards

The glass balustrade systems are fully compliant with Approved Document M 2004 and BS8300:2000, BS6180 and BS EN 1991.

Total Supply and Fix Package

Our handrail and balustrade division offer a total supply and fix package for modular handrail and part-fabricated balustrade systems from initial conception through to final installation.
