Timber Handrails & Balustrades

Safety and style

Handrails and balustrades are essential safety components of decks and stairways. With this in mind, all of Thomsons’ balustrading and handrails, created in our specialist Sydney timber yard in Thornleigh, comply with Australian Standards, always. Yet while safety is imperative, so is the look.

If it’s a modern look you’re after, we can add a contemporary design element to your home with particular styles of balustrading and handrails. So not only are they sturdy to the hand, but pleasing to the eye

Thomsons provides quality timber handrails designed to your specifications and style requirements, which may include coordinating the style with your home’s existing style and décor. Stainless steel wires are an increasingly popular feature in balustrade design, due to their sleek, contemporary look.

The appearance of your balcony or entertaining terrace will be enhanced when you choose from the many options available from Thomsons:

  • Timber balusters
  • Decorative timber baluster options
  • Stainless steel wires
  • Horizontal timber slats
  • or manufacture to your design

Our staff has the knowledge and practical experience to assist you in understanding and applying the Australian Building Code regulations when designing, repairing or building your handrails and balustrades. As a general guideline, the minimum height for a handrail is one metre, and a number of compliance requirements also apply to construction methods and materials used in building handrails and balustrades and handrails, to ensure their durability and safety.
