Details on our Rigid

"Thompson's Aluminum Railing System, TUFRAIL, is the
end result of experience gained since 1953 when we began furnishing handrail to the construction industry. We continue to seek ways to improve our product's appearance, durability and structural integrity."

TUFRAIL is designed to meet the loading requirements of the major codes.:

  • OSHA
  • The International Building Code
  • The Standard Building Code
  • The Uniform Building Code
  • The BOCA National Building Code and
  • The Florida Building Code as well as other state and local codes.
  • Our products are developed in strict accordance with ASTM standards and specifications.
TUFRAIL is fabricated from:
  • Pre-anodized or mill finished aluminum pipe.
  • Pre-anodized or mill finished permanent mold cast aluminum-magnesium fittings.
  • Stainless steel hardware.

The aluminum railings are shipped to the jobsite fully assembled with each anodized pipe plastic wrapped to prevent damage during shipping, storage and erection. The plastic is removed after erection."

Connections That Challenge Welded Joints In Rigidity
This is what makes TUFRAIL aluminum handrail unique. Stainless steel bolts and expanding internal tines combine to make this the most rigid connection available in a component rail.

TUFRAIL aluminum railing does not utilize pop-rivets, sheet metal screws or adhesives. This allows complete shop assembly of the railing using our precision equipment and highly skilled technicians. The end result is an aesthetically pleasing rail which is extremely rigid and easy to install.

"TFCO's engineering calculations are verified by in-house testing and by an independent testing laboratory. TUFRAIL is widely accepted by major engineering firms and general contractors engaged in factory/industrial work."
