Why you should use fittings and not fabricate

Company News, Post

When it comes to barrier, handrail or even access platform design, the benefits of using fittings by far outweigh those of fabrication.

For example, fittings:

  • Provide a strong and durable solution
  • Are more resilient to corrosion
  • Can last up to 7 times longer than fabricated barriers and handrails
  • Eliminate the need for welding, cutting, threading or bolting
  • Overcome the need for skilled labour or permits to work
  • Save time and money as installation is quick and easy
  • Are flexible so barriers and handrails can be designed to meet a variety of on-site requirements
  • Allow quick replacement of damaged sections when required
