Why Would You Need Railing Services in Los Altos, Santa Clara County?

In Los Altos, as in the rest of Santa Clara County, homeowners and businesses are required to adhere to strict building codes when installing railings. These regulations are designed to ensure safety and accessibility, reflecting the residential and upscale nature of Los Altos.

  1. Guard Rails: Santa Clara County mandates the installation of guard rails on any elevated surfaces with a vertical drop of more than 30 inches. To enhance safety, these guard rails must be at least 42 inches high, a standard rigorously enforced throughout the county to prevent accidents and falls in both public and private settings.
  2. Stair Rails: In Los Altos, stair rails are compulsory for stairs with more than four risers. These rails must be installed at a height of between 34 and 38 inches to effectively provide support and stability for individuals using the stairs, thereby improving safety within homes, commercial buildings, and public facilities.

Railing Systems

Cable Rail – Cable Rails are great option for a more modern look. Makes the space look more spacious. The cable makes little to no visual impact. This helps when you are not trying to obstruct a view off of a balcony or a fancy set of stairs. 

Glass Rail – Glass Rails are also a great addition for modern homes. Glass Rails have the same properties as cable rails when it comes to visual impact. Glass rails have an increased protection since there is no air space in the middle of the rail. There are many variations of Glass Rails that we offer.

Custom Rail – Custom Rails can range in style. We have designed custom rails that have more of a traditional look and feel or we can give it a modern twist. Do you have any reference rails that you have seen somewhere or any of the rails we have on our Gallery. We can design a rail with those designs for any need in your home.

Horizontal Rail – Horizontal Rails are a more traditional approach to rails with a contemporary look. There is more metal on a Horizontal Rail but it helps with the look and feel and will also help with the feeling of protection although all of rails are safe for all types of scenarios.

Etc… These are only a few examples. Feel free to check out our Gallery for more Railing Systems and examples of our work.
