We actually had our Milwright fabricate a "spring-hinged" bar assembly with a stop on the opposing wall of the stairwell which prevents occupants from traveling beyond the level of exit discharge, yet allows access from the basement area. The bar, or rail if you will, does not latch in the closed position. In addition, we installed an electromagnetic hold-open to keep the bar in the open position, This is tied into the fire alarm system to close under any alarm activation in our facility.

Thanks very much. After I posted here (and other places) the light bulb went on and I checked our Sweets cats. I''m just so out of the habit of checking there because of what''s available on line. I found some possibilities but if any one else has anymore suggestions, I''d appreciate them too. Thanks again, cda.

Have seen a few I thought a company made them to order, like a fence company or someone that does welding. Looks like they would have to be custom for that job.

Also, companies that make handrails, guardrails
