Safety First
•
•
•
•
Always wear safety eyewear when cutting or drilling.
Railing and components that are cut, can have sharp edges. Remove any burs from cut pieces before installing.
When cutting aluminum, use a non-ferrous metal blade.
If you need to cut any railing/component tube that is less than 6”, please use a pipe cutter or hand saw.
Avoid using a rotary electric saw to cut small pieces as they may become a projectile and cause serious
personal injury.
Secondary Handrail/ ADA Compliant Handrail Guidelines:
1. Regal ideas QuickKit Secondary Handrail/ADA Compliant
Handrails can be installed using various design applications such as those for ramps, stairs and for use on the
CrystalRail Frameless Glass Railing System. The following
guide will illustrate how the various components install and
work together to build your handrail/stair rail system.
2. Codes may vary by area. We recommend that you
check with your local Building Code Department for
guidelines and limitations before installation. The
final authority on when and where railings are required
on steps, stairs, landings, balconies and decks, rests with
your local building code official.
3. This document will guide you through general installation procedures and the guidelines regarding installation
heights and distances need to be confirmed by your local
building department before installation.
• Railing spaced from wall: (=> 1.5” )
• Railing projection into stairs (<= 4.5”)
• Railing height (=> 31.5” one-side-rail, or =>27” with
rails on two sides)
• U.S. handrails for stairs with one side against a wall:
30-38”
• U.S. handrails at open stairs: 34-38” above the
stairs/floor
• Canadian stair handrails: 32-36” above the stairs/
floor
4. Handrail continuity: handrails should be continuous so that
a hand can slide along the rail without interruption from
above the top step to above the bottom step.
Surfaces and Structures
•
•
•
When installing brackets,wall returns and other
components into a wall, floor or fixed object, ensure you have a solid structure for the fasteners/
anchors to bite into and help distribute the loads
that get applied to the handrail/ stair rail system
when in use.
Mounting surfaces for the brackets and components must be flat, solid and free from cracks and
debris.
Fasteners
•
•
•
•
Regal ideas Titanium Slate Ceramic Screws
(WCS-50-TS) are recommended for attaching the
various components and brackets to the handrail/
stair rail tube, and for attaching the brackets to the
Regal ideas aluminum posts and pickets.
Fastener type and length will vary depending on
the surface and material you are mounting into.
Check with your local building officials when planning your project.
When pre-drilling use a smaller drill bit than the
fastener you are using.

5. Handrail brackets need to be installed within 12” of the
end of the handrail/stair rail.
Brick/Concrete
6. Handrail brackets need to be installed on one side of the
rail end end using a rail splice/connector.

7. Maximum span without using a handrail bracket varies
by code and application. The range is between 4 ft to 6 ft
maximum span.

Before you begin installing any section, please take the time to plan and layout your section to
ensure you have calculated the proper length and have all the necessary parts to complete, including
the correct fasteners.
It is important to check with your local building codes for guidelines and limitations before installation.
INSTALLATION GUIDELINES:
Rail Splice/Connector
Model: HSC
Use to connect handrail end to elbows, corners and loop return.
3. Ensure rail ends are pushed tightly into the HAC until
you see the aluminum rail end completely cover the
inside screw hole of the HAC.
4. Use a 1/8” (3mm) drill bit to pre-drill the 2 screw holes.
5. Secure rail ends into HAC by using a #2 square head
screwdriver and the screws included.
90° Wall/Post Return
Model: HW90
Use to start or end your handrail/ stair rail against a wall or post.

For use with HR08/ HE5/ HE35/ HLR/ HCR
1. Slide rail splice/connector into rail end until metal tip in
center of rail splice/connector touches the rail end.
2. Slide collar ring over open end of rail splice/connector
until it connects with the metal tip in the center of the
rail splice/connector and covers part of the rail end.
3. Slide second rail end over opposite end of rail splice/
connector. Push together both rail ends until they are
both touching the inside inner ring of the collar and there
is no lateral movement of the collar ring.
Do not cut the HSC splice/connector. Cut the rail
ends if you need to adjust railing length.
Adjustable Angle Connector
Use to create custom angles.
Model: HAC

1. Push collar over HW90 wall/post return, until inside ring stops
at center lip.
2. Push rail end firmly onto/toward HW90 until rail end touches
inside center ring of collar and collar has no lateral movement.
IMPORTANT: Ensure top of handrail is set at proper
height/level before drilling into wall or post.
3. Mark screw holes onto wall or post and use the appropriate
drill bit size to pre-drill into surface.
Make sure you use the appropriate fasteners for the surface
you are attaching to. For mounting into Regal ideas aluminum
posts, use Regal ideas Ceramic Screws (WCS-50-TS)

between support brackets are not to be greater than 6ft
on-center.)
Picket Bracket
Use to attach handrail/stair rail to picket.
Model: HBP
Before you install:
• Use the HBW Post/Wall bracket as a guide to mark the
screw holes on the front side of the post or wall.
• Pre-drill the holes on the picket using the appropriate
size drill bit.
1. Line up the bracket holes with the holes you pre-drilled.
2. Use the appropriate fasteners to fasten the HBW post/
wall mount.
3. Place handrail/stair rail onto post/wall bracket arm,

When connecting two ends with a rail splice/connector
you must use a picket or post/wall bracket on one side
of the seam for support. This will allow for proper fitting of
the collar and handrail/stair rail onto the bracket arm.
Tilt/adjust the bracket support cradle so that it fits flush
with the handrail/ stair rail tube prior to tighteninng the screws.
