    .......is another disappointment.

    Sweet catalog, yes it is.

    And that's why I'm disappointed.

    Many of the jobs featured in the 2007 Techo-Bloc catalog have steps without ANY handrails. Steps shown that I have NO doubt that most towns or counties WOULD require handrails to meet safety codes. They have one set of steps with like, at least 5 or 6 rises, with no safety rails!

    This bothers me. As I strive for professionalism.

    Its hard for me to sell a local client the local county REQUIRED safety aparatus, when this beautiful catalog doesn't show it.

    I think I will send the owner an e-mail.

    ahem......we built alot of the stuff in that catolog.....oops!!
    don't know if any of the stairs are ours, I would have to look at it again. if you have seen the CasBella publication by TechoBlock for spring summer 2006, that is us on the cover and there is a feature inside of the companies work. No step/rail issues in there!!

    if you look on the TB website under contractors, the featured project is one of ours:

    Have you seen EP Henry's new catalog? Terrible. It almost mimics techos catalog from last year.
