Railing brackets in Auckland have evolved over time from a simple solution to hang window dressings to a multi-functional item for stair railings. The first types were cast in masonry or steel and used either on the inside or outside of a window or door. They provided an eye catching appeal, as they emphasized architectural details. Over time, wooden and even brass railings have become more popular.
Railing brackets in Auckland for stairs have changed slightly but remain essentially the same device. You first mount the brackets onto the inside of the wall. To ensure a stable installation, use a level so that your handrail will be level with the surrounding walls. From there, you can then attach the handrail brackets to either U-shape or cap rails on either side of the window or door.
Another option is to mount the handrail brackets at the exterior. For this installation, ensure that your handrail brackets are attached to wooden or metal brackets that run parallel to the surface you’ll be mounted on. Remember that if you are using wood, you should pre-drill all of the necessary holes before installation. This will allow you to avoid any costly framing problems later.
Aluminum handrail brackets are a great alternative to wood and brass handrail brackets. Unlike handrail brackets, they are not visually obvious and can easily blend into the background. If you are looking for an all in one solution for your deck railing, then the aluminum railing brackets in Auckland are your best option. They are also available in a wide variety of colors.
When installing the aluminum railing brackets in Auckland to your deck railing, make sure that they are firmly attached at their eye points. To help achieve this, install one rail at each corner of your deck railing. Once you’ve installed all of them, pull the rail back and tighten it down to ensure it is secure. You may need to do some adjustments here and there depending on the weight rating of your railing system.
If you have an aluminum railing system, you may want to consider purchasing the alloy railings. The difference between these types of railings is that they are made from a combination of two different metals. Typically, the alloy railings are either built from a mixture of wrought iron and aluminum, or forged from a combination of both of these metals. While they are primarily used as handrails, some manufacturers have introduced the alloy versions for use as siding as well. These weld-on brackets offer the same aesthetic appeal as the handrail option without the worry of rusting.
For an additional price, you may be able to purchase metal wall brackets that are formed from a combination of both metals. They are usually lighter in weight than the alloy variety but are strong enough to hold heavy steel railings on your walls. They may not look as refined as the wrought iron or aluminum varieties, but once installed, they will be hard to tell from any other type of wall bracket on the market. Some manufacturers offer this type of product, so that homeowners can save money by only having to buy the components they need when building their own homes instead of buying pre-fabricated components.
Some homeowners are opting to go with saddle wall brackets as a more affordable alternative to the aforementioned options. Saddle brackets are a simple way to create a beautiful handrail without the added expense of forged or aluminum railing brackets in Auckland. While they are generally lighter in weight than most other types of wall mount brackets, many individuals still opt to buy the heavier wrought iron versions to avoid the hassle of rusting. With a bit of research, you should be able to find Handrail Fittings who offers these products to meet your needs.
