Post to post handrail systems, also known as continuous handrail systems, have a design that involves connecting lengths of handrails to the various fittings available to allow the handrail to flow over the tops of the newels as it changes pitch or direction. The connecting parts have a profile to exactly match the handrail to create a seamless finish. Handrail fittings and ramps are joined to handrails, and each other, using a dowel screw set, which can also be purchased here.
These fitting are called ramps, up-ramps and down-ramps, but they are also known as up-easings and over-easings. These ramps parts help to accommodate pitch changes with a subtle slope. They are commonly used with end scrolls, volutes and vertical turns.
