Playspec  is a type of metal railing designed to meet the anti-entrapment requirements of the BS EN 1176 play equipment safety standard. This standard denotes that the the gaps between the railings do not exceed 89mm and therefore reduce the risk of neck entrapment.

All of Alpha Rail’s range of Bow Top, Vertical Bar and Flat Top railings can be supplied to this anti-trap specification should you need to create a safe and resilient boundary to schools or children’s play areas.

Two specifications of anti-trap metal railings are available with either a 12mm diameter infill or a heavier duty 16mm diameter infill. We can supply panels up to 2800mm long and we are also able to manufacture non-standard length, raked or radiused panels to suit individual requirements.

All of the metal railings we supply are galvanized and can also be polyester powder coated in a wide range of colours.

Anti Trap Metal Gates

Alpha Rail can also manufacture metal gates to the same specification with the added safety of a hydraulic self closer if required.

“Alpha Rail provided a brilliant service. The way their installers worked around the school timetable and stopped working whilst parents and children walked past was brilliant. They were entirely professional and safely cordoned off all work areas. The metal railings look great and I would definitely recommend them to others and use again in the future if we need other architectural metalwork.” LW – HPS, Chesterfield
