A Guide to Measuring Handrail Lengths

One of the most common questions we receive at Concept Fusion is "What size handrail should I buy?" While it may seem to have a simple answer, sometimes purchasing the correct size handrail for your stairs is easier said than done. In our blog post we will offer what will hopefully be a general solution to making measuring your handrails easier for many residential installs. 

Is the handrail you are installing in a residential or commercial building? Commercial handrail installations have significantly more requirements than residential installations. Check your with your local zoning board for your specific requirements on handrail installations for commercial buildings. Concept Fusion offers custom manufactured rails and returns to meet many local zoning codes.

For most residential builds we have attached a measurement guide below. (Please note, some localities may have additional requirements even for residential handrails. It is your responsibility to check with your local zoning board for additional requirements.)

We hope this guide helps and as always if you have any questions please reach out to info@conceptfusionmanufacturing.com!
