When going to a sporting event, the last thing fans think of are the handrails that they are using to walk up or down to their seats. It’s the railing that helps older fans get up those pesky steps or the youngest fans guide their way to their first game. It’s the support every one needs but no one thanks.
Handrail may not be the most sexy thing in the arena but it’s one of the most important and overlooked aspects that each and every visitor uses at one time or another. That’s why we here at Ideal make sure our handrails are the strongest and most secure available, with Ford Field being home to one of the largest jobs in company history.
Like the franchise itself, the Detroit Lions fans that pack the downtown Detroit arena are in need of guidance. But, unlike what most may think about the Lions, there’s a silver lining for the fans and it’s the Ideal Shield handrail that is found throughout the world-class sporting venue.
Built from schedule 40 and schedule 80 aluminum, the Ideal Shield aluminum handrail is the strongest, most reliable option in the industry. It’s customizable as well, so every customer can get the exact product they’re looking to add to their facility. Whether it’s 2-line, 3-line, infill, cable or picket, our fabricators here will produce the exact handrail needed, every time. And, on top of all of its features, our handrail will come at a fraction of the cost of standard galvanized and/or stainless steel railing.
We like to call that a “win-win” situation.
So, celebrate. Just like the Lions players like to do with a little help from a familiar product:
The next time you head to Ford Field or watch a game taking place at the home of Detroit Lions football, keep a close eye on the silver lining throughout the stadium.
For more information on our aluminum handrail or any of our other products, please contact us today at Ideal Shield. Like the Lions, hopefully we can work out a deal that will have both parties celebrating over some of our handrail.
