We're building a railing on an existing covered porch with a concrete floor.
I have browsed google but have not seen any decent sites that can give us
some good ideas. Anybody have any fav sites they're willing to share?
No favorite sites, but use your imagination. Here is a link to a couple
railings I did, you may not like em but gives you an idea. The one isn't on
concrete as you will notice, but different having one wall mostly screened,
the other 2 walls are solid insert between the posts 34" up. I've got some
pics of sunbursts somewhere, but can't find them.
I used to do a lot of work through a rehabilitation facility. Some were
group homes, others were individual owner/occupied. Regulations require
railing or grab bar on any stairs or platform above 7" if State/Federal
funding is involved. All I know is the rehab center required certain
upgrades in homes b/4 people were allowed an independent living environment.
I went for pure functionality. Any substantial railing would have
ruined the really good view, but we had children on that porch. I put
up 2" mesh chicken wire 36" high, it stops the kids and their balls but
we can see right through it as if it wasn't there.
