This is a secret hidden by industrial railing system design engineers for many years. He hopes to tell more people about this secret so that both project contractors and users can get what they want.
The industrial railing system is a safety protection system that prevents workers from falling from heights during work. Its height generally exceeds the average height of the human body (the height requirement of most industrial railing systems is set to more than 1.1 meters). It needs to have strong impact resistance (every country has standards). If it is in some harsh environments, it also needs to have specific performance requirements, such as corrosion resistance and oxidation resistance.
The installation of industrial railing systems can effectively increase the safety of workers when working at heights and ensure the safety of workers and property. Each country has clear requirements for the installation of industrial railing systems in the factory production environment. You can search for safety railing installation standards in your country.
There are many types of armrest accessories. Their material, appearance, and performance vary greatly. We need to determine from the following four aspects that certain Pipe Handrail Fittings can meet your requirements.
We need to know the installation requirements of the local industrial railing system. For example, the height of industrial railings, the density of columns, the number of horizontal railings installed, the strength requirements of industrial railing systems, etc.
We need to clarify the use environment of this industrial railing system and determine the material of the handrail accessories used to install this system. When the industrial environment is acidic, we need to use acid-resistant handrail accessories. When it is alkaline, we need to choose pipe handrail fittings that can resist alkaline corrosion. If it is placed in a humid environment, we need to choose anti-oxidation.
We need to consider the temperature of the environment where the industrial railing system is located. In a severely cold environment, the mechanical properties of many railing accessories will change. Some guardrail fittings soften when exposed to heat (certain plastic handrail fittings).
After we have determined the chemical and mechanical properties that the industrial railing system needs to possess, we can formulate a targeted inspection process. We can choose handrail accessories made of aluminum alloy, stainless steel, ductile iron, malleable steel, glass fiber, and other materials for testing. When we finished these experiments, we also chose the armrest accessories of suitable materials. We can also change our thinking: for example, we can first test the performance of armrest accessories of different materials in various environments, and design a comparison table. Our users can quickly select more suitable armrest accessories from this table.
Our customers will have special requirements for the completion time of the project. When our clients put forward project completion requirements, we need to choose to use handrail accessories that are easier to install to complete the project according to the requirements. Because there are many types of guardrail fittings, only pipe handrail fittings need to be linked by fastening, handrail fittings where fittings and pipes are linked by a thread, and formed handrail.
We need to choose which Structural Pipe Fittings to use to complete the installation of this project by calculating the cost of various methods.
The cost of Structural Pipe Fittings is mainly related to these factors:
Quality: The higher the quality, the higher the cost.
Material: Price comparison under other conditions of the same properties, stainless steel > ductile iron ≈ malleable steel ≈ aluminum alloy > plastic
Workmanship: This refers to the look and feel of Structural Pipe Fittings. The worse the workmanship, the lower the cost.
Surface treatment method: Surface treatment methods include electroplating after hot-dip plating, pure electroplating, pure hot-dip plating and powder spraying. Structural Pipe Fittings in stainless steel can also be polished, brushed, etc. Aluminum alloys can also be sandblasted. Prices for surface treatments vary widely.
When we choose the right handrail accessories, we need to choose the right supplier to purchase them. Here are the pros and cons of several providers:
Factory: They have no stock and will produce it for you after you place an order. The price is cheap, but there is a minimum order quantity, a long delivery time, and not necessarily perfect service. If you encounter a bad factory, it is difficult to guarantee the quality.
Suppliers: They cooperate closely with the factory and have a complete service team. The quality of handrail accessories can be guaranteed, and the procurement process will be smoother, but the price will be more expensive than the factory.
Local wholesalers with stock: We can get the materials needed for a project faster and get the project done with guaranteed quality. But the price will be higher.
Local wholesalers who don't have stock: they will source from suppliers after you place your order, with guaranteed quality. But the price is high and the delivery time is long.
