We install commercial and residential handrails made from aluminum, vinyl, wood, composite products, and glass. Many styles of handrails are available for second story or ground floor decks. Design assistance is available at no cost.
Handrails are need to support in excess of 250 pounds lateral or sideways load. Handrails must be at least 36″ high. Of course second story decks are common and require a handrail. They are set to 42″ high.
Handrails are made in aluminum, vinyl, composite material, glass, steel and a mixture of these materials.
You may desire to see through the handrail or not. In some second story situations, privacy is desired from the people looking up and in that case a solid vinyl handrail works well. For an open handrail all the options of vinyl, aluminum, composite, cable steel and glass are available.
