A Continuous handrail is a handrail that does not stop and start at a newel post or where the stair changes direction, but continues in smooth curves from the bottom of the stair to the top. This handrail allows you to run your hand all the way along as you walk up or down the stair. The introduction of more socially-responsible building standards requiring continuous handrails now allow better and safer access to buildings.
Wall rails, also referred to as grab rails, are often an afterthought. Currently under the Building Code of Australia, staircases installed in domestic buildings do not require wall rail but we do encourage our clients to install them, particularly if the occupants of the household are elderly or children. Wall rails do make staircases safer for the visually impaired and for people whose balance is not good.
Whilst all handrails perform the same function, timber handrails come in several shapes and thicknesses. View our range of handrail styles >>
Handrail construction is an intricate form of art. Timber handrails are constructed from several feature components that together form the completed handrail. >>
