Our wall rail can be used almost anywhere you need a little extra support.
Just keep a couple of things in mind.
The wall to which the hand rail bolts needs to be a flat plane. Too much bulging and you will need a custom hand rail with a bend to conform to the bulge in the wall. How can you tell if there is a bulge. Use a long straight edge place it along the wall and you will be able to see if your wall is okay.
|How long should your rail be? Take the nose to nose measurement on the stairs or the ramp from top to bottom and then add about a foot to this measurement. For example if your steps measure 6′ purchase the 7′ wall rail. If they measure 6’3″ purchase the 8′ wall rail. See the chart below.|
Info needed at checkout! At check out you will be asked to input the exact length of your rail from end to end. Therefore you are not limited to a round number. For example you can request a 4 foot 3.5 inch rail. Our accuracy for end length is usually between 1/8 to 1 inch. In most cases you will want to make your end length 12 inches more than your nose to nose.
