Steel, aluminium & stainless steel are a very popular choice for handrails mostly because of the benefits these material provide. As well as being easier to set up and install than other options, these rails can be supported by posts as a standalone feature or fixed with a bracket and mounted onto a wall.
The versatility of metal handrails makes them an appealing choice but if you’re still to be convinced, then we’ve put together 4 benefits of using them both in the home and in a commercial setting.
Strong and durable
When considering handrails, it’s important that they’re durable and constructed from a strong material for safety reasons. Metal is one of the most durable materials for this purpose and is far stronger than timber. What’s more, metals won’t rot like timber, resist corrosion, and stand up better to the harsh Australian elements, making it an ideal choice if you’re installing outdoor handrails.
Easy to maintain
Naturally, maintenance is an important factor, particularly if your handrails are in high traffic areas. Our handrails require very little maintenance, which makes it the ideal choice for handrails in commercial and retail settings, especially.
An experienced metal fabricator can design all types of handrails from those that are smooth, sleek, and modern in their appearance while still meeting Australian and BCA standards.
If you’re considering having a new railing built, there really is no better option. It’s the perfect choice for those with an open stairway since it can be combined with glass and wood elements to create a style that’s guaranteed to turn heads.
Another advantage of choosing steel, stainless steel or aluminium for your handrail is the fact that there are so many designs to choose from, based on your specific indoor and outdoor décor. If you’re looking for a custom handrail, then the experts at Metro Steel can take your ideas and turn them into a reality.
