When ordering you will need to specify the design type.

Timber Handrail Design Notes:

These handrail designs give attention to timber moisture shedding. Even with simple products, such as a dressed vertical rail, this eventually becomes an issue.
To assist you in determining your handrail requirements, please see our Aide Memoire (32 KB PDF).
Also see the Handrail System Bike & Disabled dimensions (96 KB PDF).

Note Well: Some of these timber handrail profiles are complex to manufacture and may only be available as part of a larger order. Please note that dimension changes cannot be made at all to many profiles. For those that can be altered, changes require re-tooling which involves $500-$1000 of additional cost. Changes such as increasing the angle of the sloping top can cause the rail to be unstable due to differential moisture contents.
