Free Standing Handrail for Outdoor Steps

Outdoor Stair Railing

Rob, from Florida, installed the Classic Offset Simple Rail handrail on the front steps of his home. You can see from the smile on his face how easy it was to install this handrail. He had the railing painted to compliment the exterior of his home. The railings can be painted on-site, or we can powder coat your railing for an additional cost. Our outdoor stair railing can be installed in under an hour. Watch the video below for an idea of what it takes to install a Simple Rail handrail.

Stair Handrail for the Back Porch

Outdoor Stair Handrail

Rick, from St. Louis, installed the railing pictured above on the back of a rental home. The Inline Adjustable Simple Rail allows a railing to be installed on steps of just about any angle. The Classic Adjustable Simple Rail Handrail is especially easy to install; no pipe cutting or drilling is required. Simply mount the bases and everything else attaches with an Allen wrench or hammer.

Porch Stair Railing

Wall Mounted Stair Handrail

In addition to free-standing handrails, there are also Simple Rail handrail kits that will attach to your outdoor porch. Porches are often designed with a flat top rail that is very difficult to grab or hold onto. Simple Rail wall mounted kits can be added to the exterior of the porch and will provide a strong, durable grab rail that can be finished to match the exterior of your home.

Signature Offset Simple Rail Handrail

The Signature Offset Simple Rail Handrail (previously the Surface 518) is our most popular Simple Rail handrail. It is easy to install and can be used on almost any set of stairs. This railing is great for insurance compliance on the stairs of your home or any other area where you need handrail accessibility.

Hybrid 518/570 - Stair & Wall Handrail

The Hybrid 518/570 railing allows you to attach to a wall on one end and the ground on the other. This is helpful when you need to ascend out of a basement area or attach to an existing wall on one end while allowing the railing to be free standing on the other end.

Classic Offset Simple Rail

The Classic Offset Simple Rail (previously the Surface L160) is more difficult than some of the other Simple Rail stair handrails to build, but it has an elegant, finished look.
