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 we also supply.
These fitting are called turns, vertical turns and horizontal turns. These pieces accommodate 90-degree turns in the handrail. Horizontal turns will take the handrail around an inside or outside corner and the vertical turn is used for steep changes in handrail height, they are usually used with up-ramps.
