Handrails

Making your Decking, Patio or Balcony construction attractive and safe.

Handrails and Balustrades are used in many buildings, including homes, and they are used to support staircases, balconies, Decking, and Patios.

While balustrades can be made from various materials, such as wood, chrome, iron, and stainless steel.

Handrails and Balustrades not only look good, they can be really helpful as well, elderly people use these to help them walk and to help them keep their balance. Also if you have raised decking it will be really helpful if you get handrails or balustrades for a bit of protection in case you fall or trip.

Decking Handrails  Designs
Over the last 10 years, the decking industry has developed a variety of attractive handrail systems. Because your deck’s rails will be one of the most visible features of your new deck, it is important to choose a rail that complements your decking material and the style and colour scheme of your house.

 

Timber Handrails
If you are looking for a classic look for your decking, the wooden handrail would be a perfect choice. The beauty of wood is that it’s hard to match. Use 4×4 rail posts, 2×4 top and bottom rails, 2×6 top cap, and 2×2 balusters. There are many different types of wood to choose from including pressure treated wood, cedar wood, redwood or timber. You can also add a decorative post cap to give it that perfect finish.

What Our Customers Say

Just had Darren and his lads from ABEL LANDSCAPES round to build me a waterfall that flows into my pond. Cannot fault these guys, they were very professional in their approach yet friendly at the same time. Nothing was too much trouble if I wanted a rock moved to a different position they were only willing to help. Pictures were taken at different stages of the job and sent to Darren to meet his approval. All in all, a great job must say I’m overly pleased with what ABEL achieved, and in a short timescale. The lads were really friendly and cleaned up after they finished each day. Would definitely recommend this company to anyone. 10 out of 10.
