Guide Handrails Specifications


Guide handrail is available in two diameters, 32mm (R32) and 45mm (R45). Both have an extruded UV- resistant flexible PVC finishing strip in black or white which is fitted into the rail after the brackets have been fixed. Injection moulded nylon end buttons are provided in black and white and are used to cover the ends of the rail. The 45mm option also has metal endcaps which can be powdercoated or anodised.


For the visually impaired, Guide can be supplied complete with feeler buttons at the end of the rails – part of our commitment to meeting NZS 4121.


Guide complies with the required codes and standards by providing right angle and obtuse bends. Compound and other special bends are available.


Guide handrails use W75 or H70 brackets or PB150's for for post bracket applications. Door pulls use D725 brackets with R32 rail and D730 with R45 rail. All brackets are supplied with fixing screws.


Guide is produced in five metre lengths, with a wide range of powdercoat finishes and it is also available in a popular anodised finish. Brackets can be powdercoated to match the rail.

Note that bends and rails may have slightly different appearances with an anodised finish.

Substrate reminder for architects: remember to specify dwangs or similar solid fixing before the wall linings are completed to provide a solid fixing substrate. The height of the handrail should be in a range between 900mm and 1 metre from the floor surface to comply with the New Zealand Building Code.
