Quite a number of modern commercial properties today feature a freestanding staircase complete with parallel balustrades supporting the handrails. There are also commercial properties that are supported on either side, or both sides, and attached to the wall using handrail brackets.

It is important to look for the finest-quality brackets to secure your handrail, so that traveling up and down the structure will be safe. The handrail brackets that you will come across on the market are made in a wide array of finishes. Whether you want a simple black bracket or a more flashy, high-sheen brass or chrome look, you will get exactly what you need.

When looking for good commercial handrail brackets, you should look for a shop that sells brackets that are measured with a 2.75-inch offset from the wall to support the handrail. This is the preferred offset for the majority of stairwells because it allows most handrails to stand out from the wall enough for a person to get a firm grip while not robbing the stairway of too much space.

During the installation of the commercial handrail brackets, you need to make sure that you have each securely fastened to a stud in the wall. You need to make sure that there is one bracket at the beginning of the handrail, one at the top of the stairs and others no more than every 4r feet going up the entire flight. If you do not use the proper number of handrail brackets along the stairs of your commercial property, the rail can easily unhinge or bend when pressure is put upon it.

When purchasing stair parts, your best is to stick with one manufacturer to guarantee that your stair rail and your brackets have a secure fit.
