Elevate Your Home with a Rothley Handrail Kit.
A stair handrail is designed as a protective barrier to prevent trips and falls on steps or stairs when one or both sides are exposed or open to a drop in height. When it comes to selecting the right handrail for you, there are a lot of things to consider in terms of design, finish, and style. As one of the main safety features of a staircase, stair handrails are an integral part of the structure and can help to prevent falls and injuries.
Stair handrails can be made from a variety of materials, such as metal, wood, or glass, depending on the visual effect you are hoping to achieve. The type of stair handrail used will impact the appearance of the staircase.
What kind of materials should you choose for your handrails?
Stair handrails are an incredibly important part of homes or commercial buildings, as they work towards improving the safety of your property for everyone from children to the elderly. Accessibility is one of the major advantages of handrails in general, but there are additional advantages to having a stainless steel handrail for indoor or outdoor stairs that are particularly worth considering.
When compared to other stair handrail options on the market such as wooden handrails, stainless steel stair handrails do not require painting, coating, or regular oiling. Once they have been installed, they are ready to go straight away, can be easily wiped clean, and require no further maintenance in the future. This will ultimately save you both time and money!
Some of the other advantages of stainless-steel stair handrails include:
- Low Maintenance
- High Durability
- Aesthetic Appeal
- Easy to Install

Select a handrail finish to match your style and interior & exterior décor

DIY Wall Mounted Stair Handrail Kit Installation – FAQs
⬇️ Q. How high should a wall mounted stair handrail be?
A. In all buildings the height of the handrail should be kept between 900mm and 1000mm, measuring from the top of the handrail to the pitch line.
⬇️ Q. How many handrail brackets do I need?
A. To install a handrail, you will need one handrail bracket at the top and another at the bottom of the rail. Extra brackets should also be used in between the two main ones, normally spaced 48 inches apart (32 inches for round and oval handrails). All necessary brackets and accessories for installing the handrail will be included in the Rothley stair handrail kit.
⬇️ Q. Do stainless steel handrails rust?
A. Stainless steel is known for its ability to remain a clean surface that resists corrosion and rust. Dirt, dust and grime may lead to corrosion, contamination and rust – so it’s very important that you regularly wipe the handrails clean to prevent this over time.
⬇️ Q. How do you clean a stainless steel stair handrail?
A. The best way to clean and maintain your stainless-steel handrails is with warm water and a cloth or rag. Once the railing is cleaned, you should dry it with a dry cloth or towel to prevent water spots from appearing on the handrail.
