Preparation and Installation

The range of components allows for a broad range of applications; both internal and in external uses. Before commencing to install the handrail system, check that there is sufficient handrail, components, adhesive and fasteners

Handrail & Brackets

▪ Measure the desired height of handrail, measure down 110mm to line up the bottom of the brackets. Mark the wall or use a laser level. Locate the brackets at a maximum of 900mm spacing.

▪ The brackets must be securely fixed to the wall. Fixings should be selected so the installed handrail can resist at least a 60kg load. Preferably fix into a timber wall frame, directly into brickwork or onto a separate rail securely fixed to the wall. Use a Pan Head12g x 50mm screw to fix through 10mm plasterboard and into a timber frame. If fixing directly into the wall lining, ensure fixing plugs are appropriate for the application and securely fixed.

▪ Rest the handrail onto the brackets and mark the desired length. Cut the handrail to length (protect the cut line with masking tape and cut using an 80-100 tooth saw). Sand the cut edge forming a slight bevel with fine sandpaper (220 grit).

Connecting Fittings

Refer to the diagram below:

▪ Locate the Alignment Jig onto the end of handrail, position the Connector inside the Jig and drill a 3.0mm diameter pilot hole. Use a 10 gauge x 50mm Countersunk screw to fix the Connector to the handrail.

▪ Use a high strength slow cure retained compound adhesive (Loctite® 680TM or equivalent high strength retaining compound) to adhere the components to the connectors (adhesive not provided). Make final alignment adjustments and allow to cure.
