Protecting the public is the overriding duty of councils, local governments, civil contractors, schools and many other organisations.

All pedestrian handrails and barriers must meet the growing number of Australian Standards and requirements focused on the protection of the public in a wide variety of environments.
The innovative no-weld Tuffrail™ heavy duty handrailing and guardrailing systems for a wide variety of pedestrian safety applications deliver the highest level of protection in public areas. The highly configurable systems can be used in stairways, bridges, parking bays, catwalks, fire escapes, schools and hospitals - anywhere tough, maintenance-free handrailing is required.
Tuffrail™ systems form part of the Moddex modular range of handrails and balustrade systems. Supplied as custom, ready to install kits or as stanchion and pipe components, the safety hand rails can be quickly and safely erected onsite as required, in a range of paint finishes to suit application.
Tuffrail™ offers unlimited configurations for public barriers. The modular designed and manufactured systems are used by schools, councils, builders and civil contractors. Uses include pedestrian footpath directional guide rails, road and carpark safety rails, bridge abutments, shopping centre safety barriers, parkland safety barriers and sports ground perimeters.
Independently load tested to AS 1657-1992, the modular, user friendly handrailing and guardrailing systems offer many safety and cost saving benefits over conventional systems at the point of installation:
  • No on site welding or hot works
  • Reduced safety risk for both installer and public
  • No touch up painting required
  • Reduced risk of corrosion - galvanised surface not burnt off by welding
  • No safety risk when installing in wet areas
