Where would you normally use this timber handrail fitting ?
As part of a balustrade on a staircase the gooseneck is used at the top of the staircase or on a quarter landing or winder.
What is it made out of ?
Plantation grown Radiata Pine that has been finger-jointed.
How do you fix it to the handrail ?
Use either the Zipbolt ST-Maxi UT or Zipbolt UT Rail Bolt. Glue the join and then apply a small amount of sanding to blend.
How should you finish it ?
As the handrail (to which the fitting will be joined) has finger-jointing which is visible, we suggest that it should only be used for painting purposes.
If wanting to stain and lacquer, we suggest using the Vic Ash, American Oak or Meranti version of the same bend.
Speak to your local paint retailer for more info.
