WOOD AS A HANDRAIL OF RAILINGS

Wood is one of the oldest materials used by man. Currently used as a construction material and finishing. Its popularity owes its lightness and sufficient for many applications mechanical properties.

    The advantages of wood as a raw material:
  • - easy to handle (soft species)
  • - thermally and electrically isolates
  • - eco-friendly material
  • - resistant to many chemical agents

The mechanical properties decisive for the technical value of wood as construction material include: compressive strength, tensile, bending and shear strength and hardness and abrasion. The strength of wood depends on its type, the force in relation to the fibers and wood humidity.

For the production of handles (handrail) railing, usually we use the following types of wood:

BEECH

The best properties characterized by wood harvested from trees at the age of about 110 years. Beech is a hardwood, with high strength. Suitable for the bending and shaping of plastic. Beech wood is colored white with clear jars with a tendency to swell and rupture, without impregnation sometimes unstable.

OAK

The best properties has wood harvested from trees at the age of about 180 years. The wood is hard, with good strength, abrasion resistant. Oak wood tends to crack at high frost due to high internal stresses, this wood is excellent for woodwork inside but very risky for external use.

PINE

The best properties has wood harvested from trees aged 80 - 120 years. The wood is soft, elastic, has good mechanical strength. It is suitable for building external and internal.

IROKO

It is a noble, durable, hard wood, characterized by thick fibrous, concise structure. It has a very high resistance to biological destruction. It is naturally well protected against fungi, as well as the atmospheric effects of certain pests. Iroko with the diverse, interesting colors and decorative drawing heartwood is the perfect material used for interior work. Wood has many warm shades of brown, comes in the yellowish gray, golden-brown, olive-brown.

According to PN-EN 350-2: 2000 Iroko wood was placed in the 1-2 class resistance to biodegradation. It can therefore be exposed to constant or frequent contact with high humidity (eg. Land). Because of the color and properties is often used as a substitute for teak wood.

PLEXI - PMMA

PLEXI - PMMA
Plexiglas or metapleks (methyl methacrylate) is a rigid, transparent thermoplastic material. It is naturally colorless material characterized by exceptional transparency. It also features excellent resistance to UV and external conditions. It is possible to dye it to a large range of shades and colors. This material due to its numerous properties perfectly suited for use in the exhibition industry, advertising, furniture, etc. In addition, Plexiglas is a material that easily can be molded into different shapes. Through it is used to manufacture casings for machines, as well as control booths.

    Properties:
  • - transparency (up to 94%)
  • - the maximum operating temperature of 70 ° C
  • - resistant to salts, acids, alkalis etc.

Polycarbonate

Polycarbonate
Polycarbonate PC is a polyester of carbonic acid. It is most often prepared by polycondensation of phosgene with compounds dihydroksylonowymi. It characterized by even at high temperatures excellent mechanical properties and dielectric. Polycarbonate is one of the light - permeable construction materials that combine very good mechanical strength, light transmission, lightness and thermal resistance. Frequently it used as a construction material, the manufacture of machinery parts chemical equipment, electrical insulating fittings, transparent screens measuring devices, as well as lighting equipment. Ideal for use in making the transparent partition in modern housing. It is also widely used in interior design as an alternative to much more expensive tempered glass.

    Properties:
  • - transparency 85%
  • - resistance to chemicals
  • - low coefficient of thermal expansion
  • - abrasion
  • - approved for contact with food
  • - high electrical resistance
  • - the possibility of bending the cold
