Your easy choice for structural pipe fittings1-877-EASYFIT
Even a large railing system like the one above can be installed easily with the use of slip on pipe fittings. This one uses EF22G Short Cross, EF12G Railing Base Flange, EF03G Short Tee, and EF04G Long Tee. EF03G is used to connect upright to the top rail top rail where pipe joins are not needed. Pipe joints at uprights can be achieved with EF04G. The railing above protects the skating rink above during the season, but is easily removed for the summer months when the area is used as a specials events plaza.
Good planning can help you get your water access and recreation areas in shape for warm weather. A simple railing like the one above uses EF02G 90 Degree Elbow, EF20G 3 Way Blind Corner, EF21G 3 Way Open Corner, EF22G Short Cross, and EF03G Short Tee. In the case above, uprights are set in concrete, but you can also use EF12G Railing Base Flange for setup of uprights.
Design aesthetics are maintained in this historic church even after installation of a pipe railing. Having been built way before the many building codes we have today, the choir loft barrier was very short. Addition of a simple short railing provides needed safety and still integrates well with the interior. Short uprights were mounted to the architectural columns, and then pipe was run across and wall mounted at the sides. The railing was then painted to blend with the interior. This project used EF04G Long Tee for the top joints and EF11G Base Flange for the wall mounts at the sides. Since the uprights are very short, and does not support a structural load, EF11G Base Flange was used to mount the uprights. Use the base fitting most appropriate for your pipe structure needs.
