There are a number of different materials used in the handrails. If the railing is external, as the fence terraces, roof or any open space, then the material is concrete. Concrete can stand up to weather and will not be destroyed. There are a number of affordable modular flat pack handrail systems in Australia.
If handrails are placed inside the building, as lining the stairs of ten different materials can be used. The handrail is also made of wood. Another material that is used in the handrails is a cast iron or wrought iron. Hand rail designs depends on the theme of the building.
Aesthetic appeal is important when you are considering your handrail, but strength and security are the strongest reasons for using stainless steel handrail fittings in your home and garden. Stainless steel is perhaps one of the strongest materials used in constructions.
Stainless handrails also offer you security, providing a strong rail which can be useful to those who are less firm on their feet, or for children who might be relying heavily upon the rail to hold them up as they go downstairs. Fitting these rails can therefore increase the safety of your staircase. You can also customize these handrails with different colors and designs.
