Step 1: Dry fit handrails to determine proper lengths prior to

External Swivel
Prior to construction, check with your local regulatory agency
for special code requirements in your area.
Start with an Inside Corner piece when applicable.
Guidelines:
• The height of the secondary handrail must be installed between
34” and 38” above the surface, regardless of the height of the guard.
• We recommend that handrails be dry fit prior to final installation to
eliminate cutting and fastening errors.
• IMPORTANT: The secondary handrail must be attached to a structural
support. When installing mounting brackets on post sleeves, ensure
the hardware attaches to the structural support.
• For maximum strength, brackets should be used at every post and
every joint, or as closely as possible to the joint.
• An adhesive may be applied to further reinforce construction.
• Handrails must be supported every 6’ on-center
by a mounting bracket.
