GRP Handrail Fitting Side Support.
Used as a structural base for the stanchion post when fitted to side of stairs, ramp or walkway. The base of the fitting is closed so the tube does not pass through. The side fit base is a pinch fit to the tube so that when clamped tight to the side it holds the tube in place.
Care is needed not to over tighten the bolts which could cause the fitting to crack. Spacer washers should be used to prevent the deformation of the fitting. The holes in the side fit base are 10mm diameter. The type of bolt to be used depends on the substrate to which is to be fixed.
