Best Staircase Handrails in 2020



Happybuy Handrail Arch #4 Fits 4 or 5 Steps Matte Black Stair Rail Wrought Iron Handrail with Installation Kit Hand Rails for Outdoor Steps Review:


The product was well packaged, it installed easily, it looks good and is stable. My only thought is the illustrated instructions should be easier to view. The ink was either faded or to light a color making it difficult to interpret. Also the instructions should include the drill hole size for the anchor bolts.



Iron X Handrail Picket #1 (Concrete Steps) Review:


As the other reviews it does arrive at prime speeds, so super happy about that. About the railing, it does not come with concrete anchors but the holes are 3/8'' so i used 3'' 3/8'' concrete anchors which are way longer than needed, so you can get shorter ones. The instructions booklet was super helpful, you need to level the railing by raising the front post and finding where its level, then measuring that distance it is off the ground and cutting it off from the back post. Really straight forward. The hardest part was installing the supports that bolt to the concrete, you have to be really accurate since the top piece slides onto the two supports it comes with. Once bolted and installed it you could run your riding mower into the railing and it wouldn't budge. It looks really good and the finish looks really good, overall super happy with it since it is really sturdy. I didn't really like the pieces that go over the bolts on the bottom since it didn't seem to have as nice of a finish and wasn't as thick as the railing. It turned out nice tho, so no complaints!



5 ft. Handrail - Complete Kit. Satin Black Anodized Aluminum with 3 Black Wall Brackets and ADA Returns - 1.6" Round - Overall Length: 65" Review:


Didn't know what to expect when i ordered the product (ordered two 2ft handrail kits and a 3ft handrail kit). I liked the look of them as soon as i unpacked them (they arrived reasonably fast considering they had to go through customs as well - ordered from Canada). Solidly built, but very finely finished, the handrails surpassed all my expectations. Putting the kit together and attaching them to the backyard wall was easy, due to the ingenious design of the entire kit; it all would have been a breeze had it not been for the wholes i had to drill into the brick walls for the brackets that sustain the handrails . But with a hammer drill that was also done relatively easily. Now when installing one of the brackets, a screw and its thread got damaged. I kept turning the screwdriver and the screw was not going anywhere. Finally i realized the thread was gone, so i thought, let me email the seller, see what they say. I did and to my surprise, they replied the next day, saying they will send me a replacement at no cost. The replacement bracket was at my door in a day and a half. Last night i installed the last of the 3 handrail kits, and the elderly person who lives with us and is the main beneficiary of the handrails is very happy with the results, and so are we. The whole setup looks great in our opinion and it feels very solid and safe, too. The price was a bit steep, but compared to other products i looked at (and adding into the mix the CAD vs US dollar parity), it is totally reasonable. (We will see how well the handrails take the Canadian winter, but being aluminum, that shouldn't be a problem).

Definitely recommend the product - very good quality - as well as the team that stands behind it - they demonstrated excellent professinalism and care for their customers.



B52 Anodized Handrail Aluminum Stairs Kit Stainless Steel Look 13 Ft and 1.97"diameter Review:


These handrails are quality items. I am happy with my purchase and would probably buy them again. There are, however, some things for others to consider: color, screw hole covers, installation, and metal hardness. Color: the item is pretty 'true' to stainless steel color (even though it is aluminum). This means it has a bit of champagne color to it -- its not as silver as, say, a chrome. Screw hole covers: I was hoping the hardware would include fascia / cover plates to slide over the three screw heads which go into the wall for each mounting post. Some of the pictures show these cover plates, but according to the manufacturer they are no longer availablle and not included. Installation: is a little tricky. You need to drill the holes for each mounting plate for each post. The metal is soft and drilling into it isn't hard, but you really need to use a drill press (and also need to hold the pipe tightly) to drill each post's holes (2 are required per post) with the necessary precision. The end caps will not stay in place on their own -- you need to use some sort of glue or caulk (and something to hold them in place while the stuff cures). Metal hardness: there isn't much of any, so be careful how you handle the pipes -- they scratch/gouge pretty easily.



Happybuy Handrail Picket #1 Fits 1 or 2 Steps Matte Black Stair Rail Wrought Iron Handrail with Installation Kit Hand Rails for Outdoor Steps Review:


Received prior to estimated arrival. Parts bag split inside packaging and hardware was loose. Unfortunately, there was also a hole in the box and several anchor bolts were lost. Customer service offered an immediate [very generous] credit. For promptness and customer service they deserve 5 stars. As an aside, although the top handrail is wrought iron, the balusters and supports are hollow steel tubes. The finish is gloss black and does not seem to be a powder finish; however, this matches my other decorations and I like it so I did not subtract any stars!



Happybuy 3-Step Transitional Handrail Fits 1 or 3 Steps Matte Black Stair Rail Wrought Iron Handrail with Installation Kit Hand Rails for Outdoor Steps (Unadjustable) Review:


We looked everywhere for two handrails that would compliment the curved arches on our front porch and make a statement. When we opened the boxes we were very pleasantly surprised. Not only are they fully assembled and solidly built, but they are extremely stylish. They look custom, as if a designer created them just for us.

I installed them myself pretty easily. I bought an inexpensive hammer drill for the job (about the same price as renting one) and watched some YouTube videos to prepare. This was a home run purchase.
