Often confused as a railing, the handrail is also known as a banister, is a staircase part that people hold onto for stability and security when going up and down the stairs—not the railing itself. These two go together, but some homes and commercial establishments let handrails sit on top of spindles to form the part of the balustrade or fence, which makes the railing and handrail one. Some like it fixed on the opposite side of the railing, which is the wall.
And if you are thinking of which handrail material to use for your home or business establishment project, here is one of the most sought-after handrail materials used for making and installing safety handrails.
In the past, a residential handrail would often be made of wood, but as time pass the use of metal handrails became a trend that most often fit the contemporary style of living. One of the frequently chosen handrail materials is the aluminum. It is chosen by many home and business owners because of its versatility—whether you want a satin, matte, or polished finish, it is possible. But for someone who hates seeing fingerprints or smudges on aluminum surfaces, the satin finish would be the best option. And oh, they go well with glass railings that gives off a classy, elegant, but modern vibe to a room. Aside from that, it is lightweight and is naturally resistant to corrosion and rust that makes it a suitable option for either indoor or outdoor installation.
In most business establishments, a commercial handrail made of aluminum can frequently be spotted because of its steel-like characteristics: strong and durable, withstanding even the harshest of weather settings. Though silver and reflective in the most finish, you can request a color you want; this is done by applying a powder coat to fit your home or office style. Did we mention that this type of steel material is very affordable? YES.
