The unique “hinge and pin” system of this socket tee enables existing structures to be easily modified without the need for dismantling. Hinges around existing size 8, or 48.3mm O/D Schedule 40 tube (1.90″ O.D.) and allows for attachment of Handrail Bracket stub or of an Internal Coupling 514-7 with either the 565-7 or 567-7 Returns. Does NOT attach directly to tube on stub end.
The Series 500 DDA Railing System is a cost effective handrail installation suitable for stairs, ramps or walkways that conform to the railing requirements of the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA). DDA railing is a framework of horizontal rails supported by vertical uprights (posts), assembled from fittings and tube. This type of railing provides a contiguous gripping surface throughout its entire length.
The modular Series 500 Railing fittings securely join standard sizes of schedule 40 galvanized steel tube and is flexible enough to accommodate most variations between design drawings and site requirements. The system does not require any drilling, welding or threading, and is easily assembled without specialized workers or equipment. All fittings are galvanized for low long-term maintenance and can be powder coated to your choice of RAL Colours
