Hand rails can be found anywhere from restaurants to ships, assisting people with both steps and inclines. It is important to remember that a large percentage of the population relies on hand rails to assist them in their daily activities, whether it involves assisting someone down a hallway or helping an individual out of a chair. Adding hand rails to an establishment opens up accessibility to all, allowing everyone to enjoy all that your business has to offer.

Hand Rail Installation

When selecting a hand rail for your home or business, determine whether you want the rail ends to curve and attach flush to the wall or if you prefer to use brackets and end caps. There are decorative and functional benefits for both choices, so it's best to weigh your options carefully. Bracket attachments will offer you a bit more diversity, but flanges will give your railing added support.

Bracket support is now available in a decorative selection, allowing you to express your creative preferences to accent the walls and existing artwork. Brackets can be found in a number of modern and traditional styles, as well as a variety of metals. Wood railing can be combined with brass or steel brackets for a bit of assortment, creating a lovely contrast in materials.

For customers who want a heavier, stronger handrail, metal handrails are best attached by means of a flange and separate anchor if necessary. Flanges are available for both floor and wall mounting, and can be placed either straight on or at an angle. For larger handrails, brackets can also be used every four feet for additional support. Be sure to consider solid brass railing fixtures for their beauty and longevity.
