Guard rails need to be sturdy and safe and they need to exceed specifications set out by the building department. Where do these rules come from?  Basically, whenever someone is injured due to a failed guard railing, law suits follow, and the building department that inspected the project gets sued as well. They are supposed to use these guard rail failures to improve code, but often there is a knee jerk reaction.

Here in Ontario they actually go so far as to mandate 3 guard rails. All 3 designs are ugly, and two are flawed. This is why most modern deck builders are using prefabricated aluminum rails that provide their own engineering.
