Tips to installing Type 6 DIY stainless handrails for stairs

Type 6 wall mounted handrails with elbow plates at each end are easy to install. It is just a matter of attaching the base plates to your wall with simple fixing, and pressing the stainless handrail fittings together for that strong and permanent look.

Step 1.

If attaching to a cavity wall, locate the vertical timber studs using a stud finder or similar. Mark the wall to show the centre of the studs.

Step 2.

Measure the distance between the centres of the studs you intend to attach the wall mounted elbow plates to. If you require us to cut the handrail tube for you, please tell us the distance between the centres of the studs and the angle of the rail (if not horizontal).

Step 3.

Assemble the elbow wall plates and tube together.

Step 4.

Mark the holes for attaching the elbow wall plates to the wall.

Step 5.

Using a suitable pilot drill, drill the screw holes for attaching the handrail to the wall.

Step 6.

Screw the handrail to the wall studs.

Step 7.

To prevent the handrail from rotating we recommend that you insert a stainless pop rivet (or screw) 15mm from each end. (You will need to centre punch the handrail tube and drill a suitable size hole through the tube and elbow.)

Step 8.

Clean and polish your handrail.


When measuring the handrail tube, be sure to allow for the length of the elbow wall plates shoulders.
When cutting the handrail tube the best results can be obtained by 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.
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.

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