By default our balustrades and handrails are welded together and constructed either from 316 (marine) grade stainless steel or brass, for both indoor or outdoor use. This ensures a long life, even in harsh environments

A few things to consider when planning balustrades or handrails

Grade and surface finish of stainless steel or brass make a big difference on how your balustrade or handrail will look over time, especially considering proximity to harsh environments such as saltwater, chlorine, etc

A smoother (i.e. more highly polished) surface is more expensive initially, but will remain looking new much longer

There are legislated safety requirements for different types of balustrades, handrails, ramp rails or pool fences. If you're not sure what you require be sure to ask one of our sales team

Swimming pool rails can occassionally highlight pre-existing issues. We suggest using 316 grade, mirror polished stainless for this purpose, with earth tags welded to posts, and only fixed down with 316 grade stainless fixings such as dynabolts, etc. In some problem cases it may be necessary to have the pool water tested by a qualified person for residual low-level electrical leakage which can cause premature deterioration of stainless steel. These are specialist areas that Bell Stainless has no direct expertise in, but in these cases we're happy to do what we can to ensure the integrity of the stainless steel
