Grab Bars and Handrails on Standard Metal Staircases and Spiral Staircases


Why does Austin city code requires you to install handrails and grab bars on staircases and spiral stairs?

If you don’t have them – you may fall off!

All kidding aside, you need to make sure that your spiral staircase, apartment building stairs or residential home staircases not only meet code – but are safe and secure. A hand railing can be artistically designed using wrought-iron or metal and built to any specification and installed at your home office by our professional installation crew.

There are a number of building code requirements to consider when designing stairs:

  • Tread length
  • Riser height
  • Space between stair balusters
  • etc.

All are just some of the many things that you will need to review with your architect or builder prior to installation.
