  • Handrails


Many people overlook the handrails when putting together a staircase design, as they mistakenly assume that they’re a part of the balustrade and think that they aren’t all that important. The stair handrail, however, is one of the most important elements of the design, as it provides those using the flight with support as they walk up and down.

At Gowling Stairs, we can help you choose stair rails to complement the rest of your design (whether it’s contemporary, modern, traditional or something in between). We work with a variety of different materials and can shape stair handrails in a variety of different styles, so you can rest assured that your rail will be a perfect match for your home.

Q1 – Do I need to install a handrail with my staircase?

It is actually a BCA requirement that handrails/wallrails are included in the construction of stairs in Melbourne. This helps to prevent accidents from occurring as people walk up and down the flight.

Q2 – Can these handrails be used in conjunction with all balustrades?

Our handrails can be used in conjunction with a range of different balustrades, although this will depend on the size of the rail. We can discuss your options with you and show you how the finished product will look.
