handrail for ramp fittings

Sloped Allen Key Fittings

Angled fittings are available up to 11° in pitch, to provide a secure handrail solution for your home or business. All fittings lock the tube in place using just an allen key. This provides a simple safety barrier or handrail solution for your ramp which can be easily installed, saving time and money.

Swivel Handrail Fittings

We have also included swivel fittings within our sloped range, as the pitch of the ramp isn't always known. Our swivel fittings will pivot to the correct angle to suit the ramp, and once locked in place will ensure a tough, durable solution.

Handrail Size/Diameter

For handrails and safety barriers on ramps, we would recommend using either size 7/42mm or size 8/48mm steel tubing. This provides a strong and durable handrail, and also means that you can space out the uprights/posts a bit more, using less tube and fittings. Generally these uprights are spaced at 1500mm centres.


Height Of The Handrail

We recommend keeping the handrail at between 900mm and 1100mm. According to Park K of the Building Regulations, the overall height should be between 900mm and 1000mm from the ramp or pitch line, while it should be between 900m and 1100mm on a landing.

Handrail For Private Dwelling

For private use, we would recommend varying the height of the handrail to suit the person who is most dependent on it. For example, if you are installing a handrail for your grandmother and she is only 5 feet in height, you might consider limiting the height of the handrail.


Handrails For Disabled Access

If the handrail is predominantly for a wheelchair user or someone with disabilities, then a handrail should be installed which is designed to the standards recommended by the National Disability Authority. These can be found in Part M of the Building Regulations, and include the following:

  • There should be a closed end at the beginning and end of the rail
  • The handrail should be smooth and continuous
  • Termination of the rail should be done in a way which reduces the risk of clothes getting caught on it
