45 Degree Mitered Handrail
It is intended to create a direct passage between two handrails with 90 degree angle them.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Volute
Volute is used in case of employment of the Curtail Entry Step in a flight of stairs. This element communicates exclusive refinement not only to the handrail but also to the entire stairway.
Volute detail allows to smoothly round out the end of the handrail and to provide for its availability in a broader entry zone. Usually the Volute is supported with 5 balusters from below.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Start Easing
Start Easing is applied when it is necessary to make a smooth passage between the handrail and the newel positioned on the first step.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Level Quarter Turn with Cap
If joining of two horizontal handrails meeting at an angle of 90 degrees is required, while providing for additional support of handrails at the angle joint with the help of an additional newel, a Level Quarter Turn with Cap is used.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

135 Degree Level Turn
If joining of two horizontal handrails meeting at an angle of 135 degrees is required, while providing for additional support of handrails at the angle joint with the help of an additional newel, a 135 Degree Level Turn is used.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Tandem Cap
Tandem Cap is used in case when two linear segments of horizontal handrails are to be joined, while providing for additional support of handrails with the help of a newel.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Upeasing
Upeasing is used in case when it is required to change the direction of a handrail from angular to vertical one.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Overeasing
Overeasing is used in case when it is required to change the direction of a handrail from angular to horizontal one.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Opening Cap
Opening caps are used to work up the ending of a handrail and to provide for additional support of a handrail at the end.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Turnout
Turnout in the same manner as a Volute allows elegantly fashioning the lead-in of the handrail, but it has a more restrained design.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Gooseneck
As you already know from the section Basic Stairbuilding, the height of handrails above the railing shall be minimum 900 mm, and the height of handrails in the railing of the next level shall be minimum 1100 mm. To provide for consistency of a handrail, to create the passage between handrails of different levels, and to change the direction of a handrail by 90 degrees, they use a Gooseneck. The bottom part of a Gooseneck can be cut for the required length.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Gooseneck with Cap
Gooseneck with Cap in the same manner as a Gooseneck, serves to provide for consistency of a handrail, to create the passage between handrails of different levels, and to change the direction of a handrail by 90 degrees. Besides, it can provide for additional support of handrails at the corner with the help of an additional newel.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Straight Gooseneck with Tandem Cap
Straight Gooseneck with Tandem Cap in the same manner as a Gooseneck, serves to provide for consistency of a handrail, and to create the passage between handrails of different levels. Besides, Straight Gooseneck with Tandem Cap provides for additional support of handrails with the help of an additional newel.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Straight Gooseneck No Cap
Straight Gooseneck No Cap in the same manner as a Straight Gooseneck with Tandem Cap serves to provide for consistency of a handrail, and to create the passage between handrails of different levels.
Straight Gooseneck No Cap is applied when a handrail should be interrupted with a newel.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

180 Degree Gooseneck with Cap
180 Degree Gooseneck with Cap in the same manner as a Gooseneck with Cap serves to provide for consistency of a handrail, and to create the passage between handrails of different levels. But at the same time it changes the direction of a handrail by 180 degrees, and it can provide for additional support of handrails at the corner with the help of an additional newel.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


The above overview of types of handrails and complementary elements for them is not full, and it only serves an example of a variety of forms, designs, and construction solutions.
Every manufacturer has its own models of handrails and complementary elements for them, and all you need is to choose those which suit you best.
