Kick Plate

Also know as Toe Plate or Toe Kick. Mounted at the base of most horizontal guard rails and prevents ground based foreign objects from falling to lower levels that maybe occupied by people.

Cantilever Rail

Also know as a grip rail or out-rigger rail. Generally mounted 2'-10" above stair nosing line or ramp when full height guard rail is used.

Panel
