Metal & Stainless Steel Balustrades & Handrails

Metal and stainless steel balustrades and handrails are popular choices for their durability, strength, and low maintenance. These materials offer a sleek, modern look and are resistant to weathering and corrosion, making them ideal for use in both internal and external applications.

Stainless steel handrails are especially popular for their clean lines and modern appearance. They can be combined with other materials, such as glass or timber, to create a variety of styles and designs. Stainless steel is also easy to clean and maintain, making it a great option for high-traffic areas.

Metal and stainless steel balustrades and handrails offer a number of advantages, including:

  1. Durability: Metal and stainless steel are highly durable and resistant to wear and tear, making them ideal for high-traffic areas.
  2. Low Maintenance: Unlike wood, metal and stainless steel do not require regular maintenance, such as sanding, staining, or painting.
  3. Hygienic: Metal and stainless steel are non-porous, making them easy to clean and hygienic, especially in commercial settings.
  4. Aesthetics: Metal and stainless steel offer a sleek, modern, and sophisticated look that can enhance the visual appeal of any space.
  5. Versatility: Metal and stainless steel can be designed and manufactured in a variety of shapes, sizes, and styles, making them suitable for a wide range of applications.
  6. Cost-Effective: While metal and stainless steel may have a higher upfront cost compared to other materials, their durability and low maintenance requirements can make them a cost-effective option in the long run.

Metal balustrades and handrails can be custom-made to fit any space and powder-coated in various colours to match your decor. They are also available in various sizes and styles, making them suitable for residential and commercial applications.

  • Mixing Materials: Use traditional materials, such as wood or stone, in a modern way. For example, combining a traditional wooden tread with a sleek glass railing creates a beautiful contrast.
  • Integrating Lighting: Adding lighting to a traditional staircase can give it a modern twist, making it both functional and visually appealing.
  • Combining Shapes: Mixing traditional and modern shapes can create an eye-catching staircase design. For example, combining a traditional curved staircase with modern square balusters creates a unique look.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does a stainless steel balustrade cost per metre in Australia?

The cost of a stainless steel balustrade in Australia can vary greatly based on several factors such as the type of stainless steel used, the complexity of the design, the size of the project, and the location of the installation. On average, a stainless steel balustrade can cost depending on the scope of the project. However, prices can be higher or lower based on specific project requirements. It’s best to get a detailed quote from a professional balustrade and handrail installer to get a more accurate cost estimate for your project.

What is the difference between a handrail and a balustrade?

A handrail is a horizontal rail mounted on a wall or a stair post and used for support when climbing stairs or walking along a balcony or terrace.

A balustrade is a complete railing system that consists of several components, including the handrail, posts, and balusters. The balusters are vertical posts that support the handrail and are placed at regular intervals along the length of the railing. Balustrades can be made of various materials such as wood, metal, or glass, and they serve as both a support system and a decorative element.

In summary, the handrail is a component of the balustrade system and provides support, while the balustrade is the entire railing system that provides both support and decoration.

Which steel is best for outdoor railing in Australia?

In Australia, 316 marine-grade stainless steel is commonly used for the outdoor railing as it is durable and resistant to corrosion in harsh weather conditions. Other options include powder-coated aluminium or corten steel. The best option depends on the specific requirements of the project and the intended design aesthetic.
