SMART Timber Handrail Installation Across the UK

Handrails are a safe, durable and stylish addition to any home or commercial space. They’re able to transform an area with that added security benefit and they can come in many colours, styles and materials. From stainless steel to timber, handrails are able to add that touch of character to your stairs that you’ve been missing whilst preventing any falling. At SMART, we offer a range of high quality handrails that deliver the practicality, style and durability you’re after. Our handrails come in various materials, colours and styles to provide your home just what you need. 

Our timber handrails are beautiful, stylish and provide a more natural feel to the environment they’re in. This can soften the look of any industrial space, or bring nature inside a home. Timber works much better indoors, bringing the natural feel to your space in a variety of different wood colours from high quality oak, to ash, maple or beech. All of our timber handrails are available in 42mm and 48mm diameter, and we provide an unrivalled service when installing them into your commercial or residential spaces.

Wood Customisation

These sturdy and stylish circular handrails can come in different woods to provide different looks and natural finishes into your home or commercial space. All made with high quality timber in oak, ash, maple or beech, you can really customise the wood to fit perfectly into your space and bring those outside natural elements inside. These are a great alternative to the classic handrail, and can be altered to your taste whether you’re after a more traditional style or modern approach.

Timber Handrails

Strong and Durable

Our timber wood handrails have steel core rails built into the wood to provide that additional strength you desire. Made from high quality timber in a variety of woods, these handrails are strong and durable, but are recommended to be only used indoors. Natural timber can be susceptible to expansion and contraction when exposed to British weather.

A Timeless Aesthetic

Our timber handrails provide a timeless and aesthetically pleasing look to your space as the classic look of timber is always a pleasing one. Timber is the perfect option if you’re looking to create an area with a modern and sophisticated look, but it can also work for more traditional settings as it is a versatile material. The neutral tones of timber allow easy coordination with your existing space, and can bring outdoor elements inside to balance more commercial spaces.

    Handrails FAQs

    Cleaning timber handrails is simple, we recommend a gentle cleaning method to protect the wood. Use a mild solution of water and vinegar with a damp cloth to remove the dirt, as well as dust. Polishing is also advised to bring out the wood’s grain and keep it gleaming.

    Our handrails can vary in price depending on factors such as the style, the fittings involved, the size and more. If you require a quote on a specific project, feel free to contact us.

    All of our timber handrails are available in 42mm and 48mm diameter, and we are able to customise handrails to meet the space you intend to implement them into.

    Between 900mm and 1000mm from the pitch line of the stairs is the height you should fit a handrail. This is approximately 39.4-39 inches and provides the perfect height for holding onto the handrail, providing the optimum safety.

    For your home, especially if you’re trying to sell a house, you will most likely need a handrail. If your home has three steps or fewer, you do not need to install a handrail. However, if you have four or more then you must have a handrail mounted on at least one side if the stairway is less than 44 inches wide. If the stairwell is open, you must have a handrail there. If the stairs are more than 1000mm wide, then it must have a handrail on both sides.
