d line’s handrail system is uniquely constructed of a number of standard modular components. This means that on-site fabrication or welding is not required.
The goal was to design a handrail system to accommodate the challenging constructions and structural variations of staircase geometries, without compromising the aesthetics of the design. The key was the fixing-point. Nylon rings that can be added or removed, enabling all degrees of bend angles. This allows the balustrade to mould itself to the inherent architecture – however challenging it may be.
The strength of the system is further underlined by the approval from British Standard Institute.
The d line ethos derives from a belief that design should be minimal, efficient and effective – a principle realised through form, strength and function. d line international has developed this philosophy in conjunction with Holscher Design, creating a broad family of products over a period of four decades, underpinning the evolution of a truly unique approach to architectural detail.
d line continually strives to comprise beautifully detailed building accessories which are eminently practical and compromise neither the designer’s nor client’s aesthetic.
As with all d line products, the fundamental building blocks of the information system are manufactured from grade 316 stainless steel, making the products long-lasting and offering the highest resistance to corrosion in a wide range of environments and climates, for use indoors and out.
Mounting is very simple with the components engineered to accommodate various on-site conditions. The d line handrail system includes an engineered concept for minimizing the amount of custom bending required. The Omnibend connects individually tapered disks, that can be added or subtracted to create virtually any angle.
