    Abstract

    This specification provides the material requirements, construction, installation, and testing requirements for open-weather deck, storm-and-guard, fiberglass square railing systems. Components are to be manufactured by the pultrusion process. Handrails and stanchions shall be fiberglass pultruded square tube available in the following two types: Type 1F and Type 2F. Test at least one end stanchion and one other stanchion of each platform or deck by application of a load horizontally in accordance with the specification.
