Handrail Styles

There is a lot more to the selection of a handrail than the material is has been crafted from. Although this is important, you should keep in mind that there are also a number of styles to choose from.

“The style of the handrail can make or break the appearance of your staircase design, so be sure to choose carefully”.

We have a number of options to choose from, including:

  • No 14 (our most popular handrail style, which resembles a loaf of bread and provides a natural hand grip)
  • No 7 (similar to the No 14 except that there are two protruding bumps at the top and bottom with the narrower bit in the middle)
  • 60mm Round (contrary to its name, this style is not perfectly round; it has a flat bottom for connecting to the balustrade)
  • Rectangle (this style is a little chunkier than the others and the top edges have been rounded off)
  • Round Stainless Steel (it is perfectly round with a diameter of 50mm)
  • Square Stainless Steel (it is 40mm x 40mm and has rounded off top and bottom edges)
