In many cases, your contemporary stairs will be the focal point of your home and having the right railing is important for not only providing safe passage but for adding to the design.
Unfortunately, your external balustrades are often subjected to corrosion and the accumulation of rust, especially as time passes and exposure to the elements increases.
One of the most important safety features of your stairs will be the handrail, which is designed to provide users with support as they tramp up and down the treads and to prevent them from tumbling over the side.
Whilst shiny and sleek stainless steel balustrading in Melbourne is often chosen for its ability to resist corrosion, it is important to keep in mind that extensive use can rub off their protection and make them more susceptible to rust.
Unfortunately, your handrail is likely to receive a lot of abuse over time. Our hands, for example, often carry sticky and dirty substances that can degrade the finish of the timber.
