Railings and Codes, oh my!

Yesterday afternoon I was working with a colleague on designing a new ramp railing for a historic courthouse. There are plenty of railing types already on the project, so the challenge is to add a handrail that compliments the existing and really kind of goes away too. 

So, went to Pinterest to get so ideas flowing. Want to see some? ( *many of these do not meet the code requirements that we are working under, but they help get the ideas coming.)
