Railings Give You a Hand
It has been said that most accidents happen at home. It is often the simplest and unexpected place that causes the most significant accidents.
Three steps from your garage into the house or two little steps from the front porch to the driveway seem like no challenge to navigate. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), falls are the leading cause of injury-related death among adults age 65 and older. Even more alarming is that those death rates increased by a whopping 30% over the last decade! But it is not just the elderly or mobility-challenged who experience accidental falls. Regardless of age or mobility, every one of us can easily take a tumble.
At Joe Wilde Company, we know that injuries at home can be prevented. The addition of a well-placed handrail or guardrail makes it easier to navigate around the house, prevents falls and injuries, and is essential on stairways, decks, and ledges. Some of the benefits of railings include:
Stability on Stairs – Railings help you keep your balance and remain calm if you suffer from vertigo or a fear of heights. If there is inclement weather such as snow and ice, a railing will prevent a fall on wet stairs. When carrying a heavy load, such as groceries or a baby, holding a railing to steady your balance will make the climb less treacherous.
Barrier protection from ledges – Railings provide a barrier on an elevated deck, preventing young children, pets, and unaware adults from sustaining a high vertical drop resulting in serious injury. If there is windy or inclement weather, a railing will keep furniture and small items from flying off the edge of your deck or porch.
Joe Wilde Company offers an extensive selection of railings that add beauty and safety to your home. The railing selection falls into three categories: Modern, Ornamental, and Utility.
These railings provide the heavy-duty durability and quality you are looking for while also having a sleek modern design. Each order is manufactured custom to the customer’s specific needs and has many unique design options. The 2000 Series has aluminum posts and stainless steel cables, yielding an unimpeded view. The 9000 Series has concealed picket screws and machined opening posts.
These railings provide a more elegant look without sacrificing too much of its durability. This style works great for decks, and patio spaces, or even around commercial buildings. If the decorative look of your railing is the top priority, this category is the perfect fit. The 9100 Series allows for seamless corner transition and decorative inserts, enabling more creativity with the look of the railing. The 600 Series allows for the use of decorative columns and scrolls. It comes with pickets choices of twisted, straight, or alternating.
Pipe Rails are great for commercial properties, where strength, resilience, and maintenance-free are valued above all else. The high level of customization with pipe railing allows us to make the perfect fit for any situation. The 500 and 550 Series provide concealed fasteners and a continuous top. This construction hides any blemishes and results in a beautiful, finished product.
The railing products offered by Joe Wilde Company are aluminum, which offers key benefits. Due to its structural characteristics, aluminum railings offer smaller, lower profiles that minimize congestion on your porch or balcony. Available in multiple colors and finishes, aluminum railings stand up to the wet winter weather and will not rot, rust, or blister with age. A properly baked-on finish will ensure your aluminum railing will be truly maintenance-free and offer years of enjoyment.
