Timber Handrail Design Notes:
These handrail designs give attention to timber moisture shedding. Even with simple products, such as a dressed vertical rail, this eventually becomes an issue.
To assist you in determining your handrail requirements, please see our Aide Memoire (32 KB PDF).

Commercial Timber Handrail Profile Designs
The grabrail handrail is intended to meet the requirements of the disability code. A range of custom made brackets are available but commercially available brackets have been modified by our customers.
The curved top sheds moisture extending the life. Also available in 120x44 (VR120/44) and 95x44 (VR95/44)
HR145/69 or 44
This handrail is also available in 170x44 (HR170/44) 145x69 (HR145/69) and 170x69 (HR170.69).
This rail is a heavier edition of the normal domestic rail and is used in outside Queenslander style bridge rails. The balustrade is normally 42x35 and the rails fixed to the posts with a timber tenon called "good old fashioned fixings".
Note Well: Some of these timber handrail profiles are complex to manufacture and may only be available as part of a larger order. Please note that dimension changes cannot be made at all to many profiles. For those that can be altered, changes require re-tooling which involves $500-$1000 of additional cost. Changes such as increasing the angle of the sloping top can cause the rail to be unstable due to differential moisture contents.
