Aluminum Hand Railings for your Home Staircase

So you’re done choosing the perfect staircase… What’s next? Most people don’t pay too much attention to the railings of their stairs, until they come face to face with the challenge of assembling them. Traditional wood stair railings are a popular choice for many, as they exude elegance and durability.

There are many options available on the market today, including a handful of stainless steel or aluminium handrails that may just be as elegant and durable as the traditional choice. Here are some top reasons why aluminium handrails may just be the perfect choice for your home staircase.

Low maintenance

Aluminium railings are one of the easiest materials when it comes to maintenance. Most metal railings need practically zero maintenance, since metal surfaces are often treated with chromium oxide, which repels dust and dirt. Say goodbye to repainting, varnishing or staining that is regularly needed for traditional wooden railings.

Strength and durability

Incredibly strong and capable of withstanding high impact and significant force, aluminium guarantees safety for your family and loved ones. It may even last longer than the traditional wood option. Rust is to metal as termite is to wood but aluminium has a good corrosion resistance property.

Versatility and environmentally friendly

Aluminium is made up of relatively soft, durable and lightweight properties and is used in commercial factories and kitchens, not to mention aerospace. Its properties dictate that aluminium can be shaped into any imaginable shape and size, so you can be as creative as you want when it comes to the design of your railings. Most aluminium products contain about 60% recycled materials, which are an ideal choice for the environment.

Aluminium railings are available in hundreds of different styles, finishes, colours and designs so you can be sure that there will be one that is just right to highlight the beauty of your straight stairs. You can choose from a wide array including classic, decorative, traditional, contemporary, baroque, abstract and modern design. With finishes delivering a highly reflective, shiny or brushed steel look, you can even opt for a stainless steel and wood combination. Imagination is your limit. Best of all, with the expanding market and demand, you can order custom-made or pre-fab hand railings of your design choice.
