About Metal Staircase Railing
As with most of our other products – including tall fences, single leaf short gates and more – our stylish metal railings for stairs are specially made to order and come in three elegant styles, including iron stair railing and even stainless steel.
When Are Handrails Required?
The mandate on when and where wall hand railing is needed – whether it be on steps, landings, decks or stairs – is usually down to your local building code official.
Typically, the building code requirement for stair railings necessitates handrailings on stairs that have a total rise of three feet (91.44cm) or more.
The Importance of Wall Hand Rails for Stairs
A lot of staircases are fully enclosed with walls on both sides. This means a wall mounted handrail is the only option to give support and safety on the staircase.
If you have a wide staircase, our metal staircase railing may be needed. In homes where there are elderly or physically challenged persons, an additional handrail on the wall adjacent to the railing can be a particularly handy feature to instill confidence and enhance safety when using the stairs.
KP Engineering offers complete stair hand rail kits, complete with all you need to add a chic new wall handrail to your staircase. Inside, you’ll find all the necessary components for a wall mounted handrail, including rails, wall brackets and more.

Your company is like a breath of fresh air compared to most in the industry.- Denise Bareham
You're price was very competitive. I would definitely consider you again (unlike many others I contacted). I also thought your website was very good.- Chris Child
I can thoroughly recommend KP Engineering Works Ltd who have just installed a new staircase leading from my raised ground floor flat to the garden. From the initial consultation to discussing the drawings to the installation day, the team were extremely professional and provided an excellent service; always on hand for advice and very willing to accommodate any changes. The finished produce looks very stylish and is much safer because of the wider treads and shallower angle. The team made the whole process really easy for me. Many thanks!- Caroline David
