Eureka Forge focuses on every detail associated with hand rails including height, structural support, width, design and fabrication.

A hand rail or stair rail is a railing which is used to provide stability for the staircase; a handrail also provides safety for people who are going up and down the stairs. Most stairs have handrails. Whether the stairs are found in a subway tunnel, the entrance to a school, in a business, or in a home, hand railings will probably be present.

Most people don't think too much about handrails. Handrails can be made from a variety of materials including metal, stainless steel, and  iron. Some handrails are quite ornate and others are made to be functional.

In most cases, the design of the handrails and the materials from which it is made will depend upon where the rail will be used. In public places, there are certain regulations that must be met when the handrails are installed.

For example, a handrail must meet certain standards as far as the dimensions go.  The width of the handrail affects hand placement, which is an important feature of a stair rail. There is also a height standard to most stair rails.

At Eureka Forge, we specialize in all facets of stair rails including design and fabrication. If you are in need of hand railing for your home or business, give us a call at 636-271-3200 or fill out the contact sheet here and we will get back with you.
