Measurement Guide

Follow these simple steps to measure up!

Measuring up for your handrails is a very simple process, be it a front doorstep rail or a fancy balustrade. The first thing to decide is how it will be fixed into position.

If you are after a handrail for a front doorstep, and you have a suitable wall next to the door frame for mounting the top bracket on, then this is the best place to fix it. We call this wall-mounted – see the blue handrail in the diagram on the left.

Next you will need to measure your steps; simply measure the rise and tread of each step (not including overhang). All we need to make your handrail or balustrade are those measurements, the fixing types and your choice of style/design. Please refer to the pictures in our portfolio for reference numbers.
