Can someone clarify on how the imposed load should apply to the balustrade based on BS6399. As far as I know the balustrade/handrail should resist the vertical and horizontal load but the question is does the vertical and horizontal should act simultaneously on the design? Because when I consider it on the same time the sections i get from the analysis is so much bigger compare to the handrail i see on malls specially when its a wall mounted handrail.
