Our unique handrail profile has been developed with ease of installation in mind. The ingenious design makes it the ideal solution for public buildings, private yachts and cruise liners. Its tremendous lateral strength and distinctive ridged design allow a flat and secure base to apply to bulwarks, brickwork and balustrades, including glass.
The underside lends itself to take square cut balusters welded directly to the handrail. A glazing channel can be welded or attached by threaded inserts to the underside. This simple yet practical handrail profile has been designed to function superbly plus offer easy installation.
This profile has tremendous lateral strength and is a perfect replacement for traditional bulwark capping or handrails on larger boats and cruise liners. The original shape of the design not only aids installation but will also stop water ingress to the underside.
With the limited availability and ever increasing cost of teak, our incredible handrail profile is a stainless steel alternative to teak bulwark capping. This new product has become the selection of choice for boat owners and shipbuilders alike. The marine grade 316L stainless steel handrail section also requires no maintenance and will always look as good as new.
Our popular handrail tube profile is normally manufactured in marine grade stainless steel 316L, making it the perfect solution for external purposes. We can also form this tube profile in stainless steel 304 or aluminium 5083 and 6063. Alternatively, you could opt for copper, brass or bronze for more decorative aesthetic. We have a metal to suit every project.
All sizes come in a bright polish finish and only require a sisal mop polish after fabrication. For information on alternative finishes get in touch with us today! One of our expert team will be happy to help.
The process of forming our handrail tube profile reduces the overall length by 0.2 meters, resulting in our stainless steel handrail tube profiles and aluminium 5083 handrail tube profiles being supplied in lengths of 5.8 meters. Other metals are supplied in different tube sizes; the total is size reduced by 0.2 meters.
Stainless Steel 316l / 1.4404
All of our five tube products are available in premium quality stainless steel 316L. Also known as 1.4404 stainless steel, this marine grade stainless steel have fantastic qualities with a high resistance to corrosion. Perfect for exterior applications both structural and decorative, it is a strong and versatile material that is ideal for marine applications.
Stainless steel 304 / 1.4301
Any of our tube styles can be made using stainless steel 304. Sometimes referred to as 1.4301 stainless steel, this practical and versatile material provides ample strength while retaining a high degree of manipulability. This quality metal is suitable for structural and decorative purposes and lends itself to interior applications.
Aluminium 5083 is a high quality premium grade aluminium that possesses immense strength coupled with excellent formability. This combination makes aluminium 5083 perfect for a wide range of applications. This material has a high value, but the additional attribute of being lighter in weight makes it desirable for specific projects.
Aluminium 6063 is cost effective alternative for applications where strength and weight are key attributes. Although a lower grade material compared to aluminium 5083, it remains a practical and versatile metal that can be used to create our flat sided oval tubes, oval tubes and ornamental square tubes.
Copper / Brass / Bronze
Copper is a pure metal that is known for its strength, durability, resistance to corrosion and natural reddish brown colour.
Brass is an alloy consisting of copper and zinc, which increases its strength compared to pure copper and provides a lighter gold-like finish.
Bronze is also an alloy consisting primarily of copper that offers increased strength and more resistance to abrasion.
All of our tube products are available in these metals and are suitable for decorative applications due to their enhanced aesthetics.

Stainless Steel Tube Finishes
Our quality stainless steel tubes are available in different finishes depending on your project requirements. We can deliver your tubes with a mill finish or descaled finish that is ready for you to incorporate into your project.
Brushed or satin finishes offer a warmer tone to unfinished stainless steel and is effective in disguising blemishes or fingerprints.
Alternatively, you could opt for a bright polished finish which provides a stunning aesthetic with reflective qualities and can achieve a mirror finish with sisal polishing.
