Knee rails

A successful design of public spaces is largely dependent on uniformly conceived street furniture. This also includes railings of all kinds, which fulfil their function as a means of demarcation and cordoning off and at the same time serve as a decorative variant of a stair railing. Thanks to their flexible design and high functionality, knee rails in particular are often used here. The requirements that knee rails have to meet as part of street furniture include maximum stability to ensure the necessary protection and safety aspects as well as an attractive visual appearance.

Knee rails are often offered as part of a system that also includes products such as barrier posts, bicycle stands, litter bins or border railings. This means that planners can make use of proven as well as decorative elements and systems as early as the planning and design phase of an individual installation or a complete street furniture system. The solutions offered are usually so flexible that special wishes can be catered for and the customer has many options, for example in the choice of colours.

Knee rails are among the classics of street furniture, and their design makes them one of the most popular variants in open space design. This is not only due to the high quality of the material and workmanship, but also to the fact that this form of railing is extremely stable and at the same time very flexible in its construction. Its function as a barrier is clearly recognisable and yet a knee rail blends harmoniously into its surroundings.

The colour scheme, which can usually be freely selected according to RAL or DB card, also ensures a suitable installation for every situation. In this way, architects and planners can either set colour accents or create a harmonious overall picture according to their own ideas. Through the possible combinations with other elements of street furniture such as barrier posts, a uniform visual impression can be achieved in all areas. Knee rails can also be convincing in combination with accessories such as benches, bicycle stands and various end pieces.

Knee rails can usually be manufactured with 2, 3 or more belts, so that the design of the knee rail can also be adapted to the needs of the user.

Knieholmgeländer können meist 2-, 3- oder mehrgurtig gefertigt werden, so dass sich auch hier in der Konstruktion den individuellen Ansprüchen gerecht werden können.
