Tips to installing Type 1 DIY stainless steel handrails

Type 1 horizontal handrails with flush joiners are easy to install. It is just a matter of attaching the base plates to your deck with simple fixing, and pushing the stainless handrail fittings together for that strong and permanent look.

Step 1.

Set out the position of the end posts and attach the bases to your balcony or deck. If you are installing your handrail on a timber deck, drill the screw holes and pre-drill the fasteners before screwing the base plates onto the deck. Use dynabolts, or similar anchor bolts, when fixing the tall bases to concrete.

Step 2.

Place a cover plate over the base (if required).

Step 3.

Position your intermediate posts using a chalk line or string line held between the end posts. Set out and mark the spacing between the posts. Drill the screw holes, pre-drill the fasteners and attach the intermediate base plates to the deck. Intermediate posts should be space approximately 1.5m apart.

Step 4.

Place some short dummy posts over the base plates. Insert the handrail fittings and measure the correct length of the handrails. The length should be measured from the shoulder of the handrail fitting.

Step 5.

Cut the handrail tube to length using either a metal cutting saw or a drop saw with an abrasive blade. File off any burrs and polish out the burr marks using a 3M scourer or similar. Never use steel wool as this will cause discolouration of the stainless handrail.

Step 6.

Place the cut lengths in position. Adjust if necessary.

Step 7.

Mark the position where the post support fittings rest onto the handrail. Remove the handrail and drill the holes for the post support fittings. Attach the post support fittings.

Step 8.

Place the corner and intermediate posts onto the base plates. Ensure they are properly aligned and the cover plates are in position.

Step 9.

Attach the handrail tube to the posts. Centre punch and drill the holes for the stainless wafer screws or stainless steel pop rivets to go into. These will fix the tube to the fittings.


If you are using mirror polished tube be careful to avoid any scratches or damage.
If you are using satin finished tube, slight imperfections can be rubbed out using a 3M scourer or similar.
We can supply pre-drilled posts ready to attach your wires, if required.
If balustrade wires are used we recommend that intermediate posts be spaced no more than 1200mm apart.

Please contact us to discuss your requirements or if you have any questions.

Our stainless handrails are shipped from AAA Metal Suppliers' factory in Wollongong.
