Must a stage and the Bima of a Shul contain a railing?

A stage and the Bima of a Shul:[1]

A stage or Bima of a Shul which reaches a height of 10 Tefachim from the ground, is ideally to have a guardrail of ten Tefachim high placed around it. Nonetheless, the custom is to be lenient in this matter and not make a guardrail which is ten Tefachim high. Practically, it is best to be stringent in this matter and place a ten Tefach guardrail [without a blessing].
