Wall Mounted Handrails, Brackets & Accessories

Whether it’s for a brand new set of stairs or a staircase renovation, if you’re looking for a stair handrail, you’ve come to the right place.

Used as an aid for ascending and descending stairs, a stair handrail is a fantastic safety feature – and with our range, they can look great too.

According to staircase regulations, staircases less than 1m wide should have a handrail on at least one side – anything wider will need a handrail on both sides.

Here at Pear Stairs, we supply an extensive range of stair handrails to complement your décor, including standard, wooden, mopstick and pigs ear.

If you’re looking to enhance your modern staircase, a wooden handrail could be the perfect solution.

Renowned for their timeless appeal, wooden handrails are an excellent choice. Pair an oak handrail with a glass balustrade for a striking and enduring look.

If you’re unsure which handrail to choose, why not take some inspiration from our extensive collection below? You can also get in touch with our team on 01938 553311 to discuss your requirements in detail, or email webenquiries@pearstairs.co.uk for expert advice.

Wall-mounted handrails are a convenient option when there is not enough space for a full balustrade. If a staircase is narrower than 1 metre it requires a handrail on at least one side, any wider and it needs a handrail on both sides. The bottom two steps of a staircase do not require a handrail at all. Pear Stairs boasts a wide selection of staircases and stair parts, including a variety of wall-mounted handrails.

Mopstick Handrail

The Mopstick handrail is compact, easily installed and affordable. A Mopstick handrail is ideal for stairs with a wall on one or both sides. They are the go-to handrail for complying with building regulations as they are quick to install and have versatile placement options. At Pear Stairs there are an array of handrails, mounting brackets and end caps to choose from, so you can fully customise a mopstick handrail to your own preferences.

Pigs Ear Handrail

A Pigs Ear handrail is similar to a Mopstick handrail in its applications. It is a wall-mounted option that suits a domestic staircase where a wall is on one or both sides. The main difference between a Mopstick handrail and a Pigs Ear is that the latter is mounted directly onto the wall without the need for brackets. The simpler design of a Pigs Ear gives it a decluttered aesthetic. The smooth curves of the Pigs Ear shape (for which the design is named) are also pleasant to the touch. Pigs Ear handrails are available from Pear Stairs in a variety of timbers, including; hemlock, pine, sapele, ash, and white oak. They can also be purchased with a white prime finish.

Standard Stairs Handrail

If a Mopstick and/or a Pigs Ear is too simple a design for your tastes, there is always the option of wall mounting a traditional handrail. Ordinarily, these handrails would be accompanied by spindles and full balustrading but they can also be wall mounted with the use of brackets. Either low profile or standard handrails may be chosen of which there are an array of options in the Pear Stairs online store.
