Product Description

Need a Simple Railing for Your Stairs?

This is a simple, easy to install railing that mounts to stair steps. The railing is completely galvanized and is designed for greater durability and flexibility than standard railing systems.

This railing is designed to be ADA compliant.

Because of our unique fittings the railing can be arranged at any angle.

Color Options

The pipe and fittings come in a standard galvanized coating. A standard powder coating finish can be added for an additional fee. Standard colors are shown below. Additional colors are available upon request.

Please allow an additional 3 weeks for delivery on railings that are powder coated.

Calculating Railing 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 fo 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 hand rail 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.

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.
