RE: Handrails...

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
The term handrail and guardrail is used synonymously with regard to buildings in the UBC, California, and Los Angeles codes. Curiously, they appear as separate items in the code table, only to reference the same set of footnotes, which tie the loading requirements together.

Best regards,

BTW, do you guys across the border make a (structural) distinct between "handrails" and "guardrails"?
