Wood tends to rot in regions with high humidity and a warm climate. This weatherproof balcony handrail is made of aluminium encased in a coloured, textured wrapping that resembles wood grain and which lends the product a natural look. A number of different designs in a range of colours are available so that, for example, the width of the elements can be varied or they can be arranged in a random manner.
Statement by the Jury
The well thought-through design of this balcony handrail has a natural look. Another advantage is its resistance to weathering.
