Another floor you're going to add another inch guard rails to it do not think that this might not be a problem with the building department it all depends upon the building inspector and how they interpret the code and again you can’t get mad at the building inspector.
They’re just doing their jobs they ‘reinterpreting code the best they can so before you build a handrail or Sydney guard rails for a stairway or a deck anything and I cannot stress this enough you need to validate the information and don't mean just go down to the building department.
And ask the building inspector or ask whoever's working behind the counter at the building department you need something in writing especially if you think something is handrail if you're going to go ahead and use it as a Sydney guard rails and that's how you interpret the code.
You're going to make it at least a minimum of inches then you're probably going to be okay but again and I can't I you know I cannot stress this enough either do you need to validate that information with a building department you could be watching this info.
I’m making it in you could be watching this info and the in the building codes have been changed surrealistically what's the first thing you’re going to do check with the building department get something in writing from someone who is important down there and make sure you're actually at the building department.
Last thing you want to do is be at the planning department and to have somebody fill something out for you so again handrails inches Sydney guard rails inches this is critical if you don't want to be tearing apart a nice handrail system that you’ve just constructed and you're proud often make sure that you have the relevant information especially on stairway Sydney guard rails and handrails
