No railings or flat surface on Force10 stovetops?

Considering replacing my Hillerange from 1982, original on the Morgan 46. Only needs one burner that just rusted away, but can't find a replacement. Oven and the other burner work OK. Force 10 seems to be good and there is a model that will essentially drop in place ($$$$).

I noticed in the pictures that the Force10 stove top does not seem to have a permanent steel railing all around it. My old Hillerange has a stainless steel railing all round the stovetop so you don't really need to use pot holders. If you do, they just clamp onto this rail. Never needed them, knowing the pot can't fly either off the back, front or sides with those rails to stop it.

I also don't like the fact there is no flat surface on the stovetop, only a very large spaced grating, so I can't rest a coffee cup or drinking glass there to use the gimballed surface as a stable platform.

So am I missing something from the pictures I see of the Force10?

Re: No railings or flat surface on Force10 stovetops?

It would seem normal to me that a stove has large spaced grating and that's my experience with my Force10 albeit a diesel rather than propane. If I want a flat surface I rest a plate on there or a heat diffuser. As for railing, mine is raised a little above the grating but I wouldn't rely on it for much other than stopping a flat plate or a heat diffuser (see above). There are two potholders with my 3 burner.
