Slightly different than a hand rail, guard rails are designed to prevent people against accidental falls. Building codes also require that no opening in a guard be of a size such that a 4″ sphere may pass. There are three exceptions according to the 2003 International Building Code Section 1012.3 which allow openings to not exceed 8″ or 21″ depending on occupancy groups or special areas. Standard or custom rails are available for residential and commercial property.
