Installation Instructions

  • ADA-Compliant Handrail Installation & Guidelines [pdf - 814 KB] - English - French


A graspable, ADA-compliant handrail is an important component to consider when planning a deck with stairs. So whether you're constructing a residential composite deck, lumber deck or a deck made from other decking material, you're typically required to install a graspable handrail on one side of the deck's stair railing when there are four or more stair risers present.

Deckorators performs well in varying weather conditions. During installation, it will contract only slightly in cold weather. In hot weather it expands. We recommend that the material is on the job site 48 hours prior to installation to acclimate. Follow the installation instructions spacing guidelines to ensure proper room for expansion and contraction.
