Headrail Braced

Design Details

Headrail braced partitions attach pilasters to the floor with minimal floor reinforcement required. Extruded aluminum headrail is attached to the top of the pilasters, providing excellent structural stability. Limited structural requirements, low cost, and good stability combine to make headrail braced our most popular style.

The clear anodized aluminum headrail is shaped to deter gripping, pull-ups, or the type of activities that often begin with the words, “Hey, watch this!”

Because of its strength, this style is recommended for areas that expect heavy traffic or the likelihood of rough use. This style is also recommended for restrooms with high ceilings, where floor to ceiling or ceiling hung partitions are not feasible.

Headrail braced partitions require the least amount of post-installation adjustment.
