Various DDA handrail designs

DDA Railings can be designed in several different handrail styles. The image below gives the four different handrail configurations that can be used when designing an DDA handrail.

The top rail is the only handrail that is required in all scenarios. Other rails are added for ramps, walkways and other circumstances.

If you are unsure which rail arrangement that you need, please talk to our customer service team about which rail arrangement is required for your handrail.
