Outdoor Handrail Options

Stylish creations are made from durable materials, including timber, glass, powder-coated aluminium, and stainless steel. All our outdoor handrails and stairs in Canberra are built to Australian Standards, as specified in the Building Code of Australia (BCA).

At ACT Decks, we source our glass, timber, stainless steel, and aluminium from trusted suppliers, such as Glass Tech Australia and Stratco. As a leading provider of outdoor living solutions, ACT Decks has you covered for outdoor handrails and stairs in Canberra.

Timber with stainless steel cabling

A handrail made from natural timber and stainless steel cabling not only looks stylish but is cost-effective too. It also requires minimal maintenance going forward. We source our stainless steel cabling (also called wire rope) from renowned Australian manufacturer Konnect Fastening Systems.

Frameless glass / semi- frameless glass

We design, supply, and install frameless and semi-frameless glass handrails in Canberra. Glass handrails are stylish and timeless – providing uninterrupted views in the process. Our quality glass handrails comply with Australian Standards AS/NZS 1288, 2208, 1170.1, and 1170.2.

Glass with timber frame

A glass railing / handrail with a timber frame produces a stylish yet homely look. ACT Decks provides a wide range of timbers and glass options (clear, tinted, etched, frosted) for your railing / handrail in Canberra. Popular timber choices (for the actual handrails) include Spotted Gum and Merbau.

Powder-coated aluminium

Powder-coated aluminium handrails are durable, low-maintenance, lightweight, and available in many colours. ACT Decks designs, supplies, and installs handrails made from round and square aluminium tubular sections in Canberra. Powder-coated aluminium handrails don’t rust either.

Stair Explained

ACT Decks Specialises  in building stairs using a variety of hardwoods, including merbau, spotted gum, and blackbutt, as well as composite decking materials such as TimberTech Azek and Trex Transcend Decking. Hardwoods are known for their durability and natural beauty, and composite decking materials offer low-maintenance options that can withstand the elements.

Stringer stairs are a popular choice for exterior applications. They are constructed by attaching treads to a pair of stringers that run vertically between the top and bottom landings. Box stairs, on the other hand, are a type of staircase that incorporates closed risers between the treads, creating a solid box-like structure. This type of staircase is often used in modern or contemporary designs.
