Designing Handrails for all Spaces

Handrails are available in many different styles and designs, there are much more options to choose from than you think. When choosing custom handrails for your residential or commercial space, don’t be afraid to design outside of the box!

Stainless steel can create a unique design element to any residential or commercial space. When implementing stainless steel to your custom handrail design, one option we have utilized in both types of spaces is choosing a brushed stainless steel finish. Brushed stainless steel handrails can be fabricated in either a straight or curved fashion! Another unique element you can implement into your design, especially if you desire to achieve a modern or contemporary ambiance, is choosing different types of finishes. If you are looking for a finish that differentiates from brushed or polished stainless steel, try designing with a black matte finish. Using black matte finishes in your custom handrail design can create an artistically contrasting element to your space. Choosing a flat-bar handrail design can be an ideal aesthetic for achieving a contemporary or modern style.

When designing custom handrails for commercial spaces, there are specific building codes that we must abide by. We always make sure to incorporate these building codes into our designs without compromising the overall aesthetic. One requirement you would want to implement into your design is the height of the railings and handrails. For example, as per Florida Building Code, railings in commercial spaces must be 42″ high and handrails must be 36″ high. In the event where the staircase exceeds 44″ in width, it is required to have a handrail on each side of the staircase. This ensures the safety of dual traffic when traveling up and down the staircase simultaneously.
