Where would you normally use handrail brackets ?
To fix a piece of handrail to a wall.
What is the bracket made from ?
Diecast Zinc Alloy that has then been Black Powdercoated.
This bracket is recommended for INTERIOR USE ONLY.
What are the important dimensions ?
Distance from the wall to the centre of the handrail is 80mm.
Spacing between brackets depends a lot on the type of handrail and timber you use; but anywhere from 900 to 1500mm is a good guide.
Do all of the handrails that we sell work with it ?
Despite the fact that the plate that the handrail goes onto is slightly curved; the curve is fairly shallow, so all of handrail designs will work without any problems.
How does it fix to the wall ?
It uses one central screw (with an internal hex fitting) that can be driven straight into timber or into a plastic plug (not supplied) if fixing to brick.
The body of the bracket then slips over the end of the screw, then all you need to do is use an Allen key to tighten the grub screw underneath the bracket to enable a strong hold. (It sounds a little confusing when written down, but it does work !)
