Pre-finished, low maintenance Cellular PVC Handrail features easy installation, classic good looks, and 25 year warranty. This is a premium Handrail at a reasonable price. Looks and feels like painted wood but is impervious to moisture and won't rot, warp, or crack. Comes with white satin finish which can be painted. Aluminum structural insert (included) also has a white satin finish.
A very generous 2-1/2" tall x 3-3/4" wide overall. Recess below insert is 1-1/8" deep x 1-9/16" wide and fits Balusters up to 1-1/2" wide. This recess must be taken into account when determining the required length of Baluster because the top 1-1/8" of Baluster will be within the recess. A more traditional look can be achieved by installing the optional 1-1/2" wide x 15/16" tall PVC Subrail in the Handrail's bottom recess. Then only the top 3/16" of each Baluster will be recessed into the bottom of the Handrail. That's perfect and looks much nicer when the Handrail can be viewed from below, such as on a two-story porch. Installation Instructions
NOTE: Actual length may be 1/4" shorter than listed but will be consistent for each shipment. (Lengths shorter than 8' are not returnable unless defective.)
