B.
Design Loads: Design, fabricate, and install handrails, guardrails, and railing systems to the following requirements.
 
** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Edit the following paragraphs as required. Superior railings are typically designed for ICBO loadings of 200 pound concentrated and 50 pound uniform, however railings can be fabricated to meet other code loading conditions. Codes vary in method of application and magnitude of load. Governing code should be checked for specific requirements. Horizontal and vertical concentrated load test of railing systems should be conducted in accordance with ASTM E 935.
 
1.
Handrail and Top Rails: Concentrated and uniform loading need not be applied simultaneously.

a.
Concentrated load: 50 pounds (90.6 kg) applied horizontally on any area of 1 sf (0.093 sm).
C.
Thermal Movement: Provide for thermal movements resulting from the following maximum change (range) in ambient and surface temperatures by preventing buckling, opening of joints, overstressing of components, failure of connections, and other detrimental effects. Base engineering calculation on surface temperatures of materials due to both solar heat gain and nighttime sky heat loss.
D.
Corrosion Control: Prevent electrolytic reaction between dissimilar metals and other forms of corrosion by insulating metals and other materials from direct contact with incompatible materials.
