The main purpose of a handrail or balustrade is to make your stairs safer to use.  The balustrade also contributes significantly to the internal aesthetics of a house or building as well as enhancing the value of that building.  With this in mind we have developed over time a wide variety of balustrade styles to suit any stairway or landing utilising the warmth and beauty of natural timber.

From the elegance of the traditional Colonial style (Turned) to the simplicity of a contemporary square look, or the eye-catching combination of Rimu with wrought iron balusters, we have a suitable style to enhance your stairs.  Below are some examples of what can be achieved.
