Whether used as a rustic element in an old building or a modern accent in a new construction, the wooden handrail is a timeless and stylish choice for any type of staircase.

Handrails are often mistakenly equated with the actual railing. However, this is the attachment, which is usually placed on top of the railing or mounted to the inside of the stairs as a separate element. However, the use of handrails is not limited to stairs, but covers a wide range of applications. They also serve as fall protection on balconies, as grip protection on walls and as support for barrier-free construction. Even in vehicles such as buses or streetcars, handrails are often found. Handrails are therefore an indispensable part of the safety equipment in many areas of daily life.

Natural and timeless: the beauty of oak, ash and beech wood in handrail designs

We at Südmetall offer wooden handrails for your staircase railing in various shapes, finishes and designs. We have different types of wood in our program:

  • Oak
    Oak is a robust and resistant wood that retains its beauty and quality even after many years of use. Oak can also be used – without any further treatment – in outdoor applications.
  • Beech
    Although beech wood is not quite as robust as oak, it is still an inexpensive alternative. Compared to oak, beech wood is slightly lighter and has a less pronounced grain. The reason for the lower price is also that beech is the most widespread hardwood species in Germany. However, beech wood is not suitable for outdoor use, as it is more sensitive to weather changes and more susceptible to fungal attack. However, indoors, beech wood is just as suitable as oak for handrails and other furniture.
  • Maple
    Maple wood is a real gem among wood species. With its fine-pored and homogeneous structure and medium density, it convinces all along the line. Its natural light color scheme adds a cozy atmosphere to any room and makes it the perfect companion for hallways and staircases. But maple wood not only scores points visually, its extraordinary stability and robustness also make it a true all-rounder in interior finishing.
  • Ash
    An ash wood railing is a timeless and elegant choice for any living or outdoor space. Ash wood is known for its natural beauty and stability, which makes it an excellent choice for railings. It is also resistant to deformation and moisture, which increases its durability and longevity. An ash wood railing can be made in a variety of styles and designs, from traditional to modern, and it can be easily adapted to any environment. Another advantage of ash wood is its ability to be stained or varnished to protect the wood and improve its color and texture. An ash wood railing is an investment in quality and aesthetics that will provide many years of enjoyment.
