250 series – Cast iron

Railing posts 250 series introduction

Railing post schemes frequently demand a number of different configurations. Changes of line, level and adjacent usage call for varying degrees of control. Selection from the series 250 to 256 detailed on the this page can accommodate most changes imposed by scheme design. All are available in flange base or rooted versions. The illustrations on this page show how simply transitions can be made
.
When correctly specified and installed the range complies with appropriate Department of Transport, building regulations and RoSPA guidelines.

All posts are available to accommodate slopes (see here) and may be used to aid disabled access. These posts are designed primarily to be used with tubular rails. These systems are often used to segregate the public from areas of potential danger. They can be found within town centres, retail parks, the waterside, bridges, and locks.

255

Full height railing panels combined with posts are the ultimate protective railing system.
All 255 posts have either full height panels or 3/4 height panels. This latter arrangement is commonly referred to as a view rail type panel. It gives good visibility to car drivers and are most often used in urban environments.
These posts are designed to accept a type 271 infill panel as standard.

256

Full height railing panels combined with posts are the ultimate protective railing system. All 256 posts have either full height panels or 3/4 height panels. This latter arrangement is commonly refered to as a view rail type panel. It gives good visibility to car drivers and are most often used in urban environments.
The design has been further enhanced by creating our type 256X R rail post which has a much greater gap between the top and second rails.
These posts are designed to accept a type 271 infill panel as standard.

257

The 257 posts have been designed to be used with infill panels. They are used in areas where a greater degree of pedestrian restraint is required. Details of panels are shown here.
Galvanised steel tube horizontal rails are supplied direct to site in 6.4m lengths allowing easy installation and ultimate strength.
