Extend Stair Rails
The handrails for exterior stairs typically end at the bottom step. But stepping off the bottom step (or preparing to step up on it) is actually when someone is the most off balance and likely to fall. Simple Rail handrail kits from Simplified Building make it easy for DIYers to build an extended handrail that fits any stairway. The kits use Kee Klamp pipe fittings and come with all the components you need (such as fittings, pipe, connectors and railings) at reasonable prices. Visit simplifiedbuilding.com to see exactly what you need to accomplish your project and a gallery showing hundreds of customer-built projects.
