Fits Most Average Sets Of Stairs
Customizable to most standard stairs with a slope between 30 and 60 degrees. The grabrail is in line with the posts, so it'll work even on narrow staircases. Even if you don't know the stair angle are afraid your stairs will be too narrow, we still have a rail for you. Give us a call, and we'll walk you through the process.
A Handrail That Blends In Or Stands Out
We have a style for you. Whether you're matching the handrail with your house, or you want it to stand out. Choose the color from an array of durable powder-coated finishes. If you wish to go with galvanized steel and paint it yourself, that's fine too.
Not Cold To The Touch
Bare galvanized steel can feel quite cold, especially on chilly days. An appropriate colored handrail will help lessen the initial shock of a freezing handrail or a hot one, for that matter.
A black handrail will feel warm in cold climates. A light-colored railing will not absorb as much heat in full sun locations.
Perfect For Outdoor Use
Your handrails will withstand even the harshest weather conditions, with no signs of corrosion. Our kits use industrial strength galvanized steel tubes and hot-dipped Kee Access fittings. The polyester powder coating not only adds a great look to your rail but also withstands scratches and scuffs.
You'll have a sturdy surface to grab onto any time you go outside, take the trash to the curb, or relax on your deck.
Designed To Last Decades
These handrails are not flimsy handrails that you'll need to replace anytime soon. Once installed, you can rest assured that it will be there for you whenever you need it. Made from industrial strength tubes and fittings. Your handrail will last decades without rusting or bending.

Frequently Asked Questions
What tools do I need?You will receive an allen key with your railing kit that can be used to connect the pipe and fittings. We recommend using a hammer or rubber mallet to secure the malleable plug to the ends of the handrail and a standard drill or a hammer drill if you will be attaching your railing to concrete or brick.
How do I calculate my handrail length?This simple way to do this is to have someone stand at the bottom of the steps holding the end of the measuring tape. Walk to the top of the stairs while each of you hold the measuring tape 3 feet off the ground. Record the length when you have positioned the ends where you want the railing to begin and end. In most cases, estimating to the nearest foot works great. Tip: Longer is better. Your handrail can be cut shorter if needed before install. The mathematical way of calculating would be to measure the rise and run of the steps and then calculate the length of the railing by the following formula: Railing Length = √ height2 + length2. The square root of the height squared plus the length squared will give you the proper length of your railing.
