Securing Your Life
Falls are the most common cause of injuries to older adults within their Baltimore, MD, homes.
As our bodies age, our stability and balance deteriorate, making it easier to fall even during mundane activities, such as open-sided walking surfaces higher than 30 inches must have a railing. This includes indoor and outoor stairs, decks, patios, landings, and ramps.
At Home Safe Home, we offer a range of high-quality, customizable railings in many different materials to improve your safety, independence and peace of mind.
The Role of Railings in Protecting Seniors
We are accustomed to seeing railings in specific places – they help provide grip while ascending or descending stairs, and they prevent falls off landings and balconies. However, railings can play a much larger role in protecting older adults, and allowing them to enjoy more freedom and independence.
Some of the places where railings can provide you with greater security and safety include:
A handrail on both sides is recommended to provide increased ease and grip while going up or down stairs in your home, garage, or front steps.
Custom handrails can be installed to provide better grip and mobility for all seasons.
Handrails provide not just a way to prevent falling off a deck or porch, but provide stability and grip, as well.
Handrails can be installed within wide hallways to provide seniors with additional grip and security while
These are just a few of the areas where railings can be used to add greater security and to help prevent slips and falls.
At Home Safe Home, we also offer access to railings in a wide range of styles and designs, as well as construction materials to help you meet your aesthetic goals.
The Importance of Customization
We are proud to offer expert customization of any railings, whether indoors or outdoors.
Working with materials including wood, but also wrought iron, ensuring a durable solution that stands the test of time, provides better accessibility and independence, yet also adds to the aesthetic appeal of your home. We can custom design and manufacture indoor railings from wood or iron painted appropriately for visibility or to match your interior décor. Exterior railings may offer better performance and longevity if made from wrought iron, although wood and other materials are certainly available.
All of our railings are custom made to the specifications of your home, and designed to help maximize the visual appeal of your indoor and outdoor areas.
We are happy to work with you to find the ideal material, color, and design combination for your home, as well as for your safety and security needs.
