Where would you normally use this stainless steel handrail fitting ?
Where you have a long run of straight timber handrail that can't be supplied in 1 continuous length, this connector serves the purpose of allowing this to happen.
What is it made out of ?
316 grade Stainless Steel in a Mirror finish.
What are the important dimensions ?
The outside diameter is 43mm, which is the same as the diameter of the handrail.
Can it be used for exterior application ?
As it is 316 grade Stainless Steel with a Mirror finish, it is more than suitable for use outside.
How do you fix it to the handrail ?
Using either the Designer Rail drilling jig or going free-hand, attach the Designer Rail plastic connector to the end of the handrail and then fit the end cap onto it with a small amount of suitable adhesive.
NOTE : This product is NOT supplied with the plastic connector used to join the fitting to the end of the timber handrail. This must be ordered separately.
2 plastic connectors are required for this fitting.

How should you finish it ?
If you are happy with a Mirror finish, then the product does not need to be touched up in any way.
If though you would like a Satin finish, try using our non-woven web pad
that will allow you to fairly easily remove the current high polished finish that it has.
*** IMPORTANT - PLEASE READ ***
Please Read Before Ordering : To join this fitting to the 43mm handrail, you will need to order the IF131 Designer Rail Plastic Connector. Two of these connectors is required for this fitting. Click this link to view the connector required.
