At Direct Pool Supplies we can supply a range of pool ladders & hand rails. On our stainless range the side rails are 38mm O.D. (1 1/2") grade 316. All the flange mounted stainless steel ladders include cover plates, rubber buffers. All have a polished mirror finish. The LS & LU ladders have buffer caps to support them onto the pool wall.
Note: Regarding the grab rails & hand rails, the drawings show the same picture for both the standard & flange mount models. The standard models go into the ground around 4" for concreting in. The flange mount models are flush, comes with a welded on flange for bolting down to the concrete slab. Both models come with flange covers.
