Bannisters are the handrail and supporting balusters or spindles that can be found on most internal and external staircases. They add an essential safety element to the construction of staircases to prevent falls and also add a decorative finishing touch to internal building design where it’s needed. Bannisters come in a range of styles and sizes and can be custom made to suit a specific staircase or supplied as ready made separate components. Handrails, spindles and other components such as handrail turns and posts are all available in a variety of materials including wood, stainless steel, wrought iron and aluminium. They are available for a range of applications with more decorative designs for domestic projects such as houses and public buildings and sturdy, simpler, heavy use designs for use in industrial settings.
