Safety through tubing

Based in the West Midlands, our business has served the country for decades, supplying only the finest in tube reduction services to our clients. The process shares similarities to tapering, where the tube’s size is reduced towards the end of the tubing. It’s typically performed on hydraulic end formers or rotary reducing machines and is often needed when clients are in need of products that possesses specific characteristics.

Many people might not be aware of this, but the home is among the most common places for accidents. We are at home more often than anywhere else, even work. Some of the most common accidents are falls down the stairs, slipping on ice, and tripping on uneven pavements. Peace of mind can be attained rather easily here though, because by installing railings, you’re taking steps to ensure everyone’s safety.

Railings can be a real boon in terrible weather, something we get quite a lot of here in the UK. While keeping your pavement shovelled and salted will go quite a way towards preventing disaster, even the best maintained set of outdoor stairs can get slippery. To this end, it’s imperative that you have railings so that the likelihood of someone slipping in ghastly weather is minimised.

If you happen to be carrying shopping into your house, irregular and tilted walkways can be very treacherous. Having some railings next to these difficult places can give everyone something to hold if the heavy load causes a loss in balance. If anyone has mobility issues for any reason, the need for railings at staircases becomes even greater.

At Multiform we can supply steel tubing that is suitable for railing applications. When you come to us, be sure to give us your specifications in regards to how you want your steel tubes to be formed. We will then use the appropriate methods to alter them. This includes tube reduction when necessary for sections of tubing to be slotted together effectively. If you ever need our assistance, be sure to call us.
