Wall flanges are an attractive railing connection option, allowing the railing to have a flush connection with the adjoining wall. Flanges are available in a number of material selections, and can be easily finished to match existing brackets and other railing hardware if necessary. Stainless steel is the most popular flange material due to its strength and beauty. As a result, many people enjoy the industrial look of wall flanges due to their simple design.

Wall Flange Choices

Wall flanges are available for a number of projects from railings to wall fixtures. Wall flanges provide a fantastic support base for heavier items, making them very popular for sconces and other lighting fixtures. Handrails benefit from both flush wall flanges and flanges which have a bar leading to the rail, which affords more space between the wall and railing.

Wall flanges are available in a larger variety of decorative selections as compared to floor flanges, but are available in the same materials and finish colors. Flanges can be used at the ends of the railing when the rails run around the perimeter of a balcony, or can be placed intermittently to match up and support the railing base poles.

Of all materials, stainless steel provides one of the most attractive looks in railing support, and can be polished to a chrome-like finish. Another popular choice is brass-plated steel; this is a good choice for those who want the look of brass but can't afford to compromise on strength. Now that there is a wide selection of finishes to choose from, finding the right wall flange is easier than ever before.
