The last place you want to take a trip to is the bottom of the stairs. Whether it’s two steps or an entire flight, when they’re not properly secured, stairs present themselves as a dangerous and sometimes fatal hazard. Preventing these accidents is paramount to feeling confident in your abilities, whilst enabling you to continue doing the things you’ve always loved. Though seemingly a small addition, installing a bannister rail can provide you with much needed support to guide you safely up and down the stairs.
How a custom-made bannister rail can help you age in place
If you have any stairs throughout your home or backyard that don’t already have bannister rails, to safely age in place you may want to change that. Bannister rails can offer you and your family additional support and balance. This will ensure you can continue to safely and securely reach every level of your home safely.
Choosing custom-made bannisters means each rail is made specifically to fit all of your current or modified stairs. We will design them to suit your home and offer them in a variety of colours.
Have you considered extending your bannister rails?
Majority of bannister rails end at the bottom step but stepping off the bottom step or taking that first step up the stairs is often the most dangerous part. To prevent falling and increase your safety, we can extend your bannister rails on all your stairs throughout and outside of your home.
Not only would extending your bannister rails make your stairs safer but it would also give you and your family peace of mind. Anxiety around falling can cause you or a loved one to limit their movements in your home to ensure their safety. With bannister rails you can feel comfortable in your home and continue to access all areas and every floor.
We design and manufacture all of the custom bannister rails in-house using rust-resistant galvanised steel, and in accordance with Australian Standards of best practice. We can supply and install your bannister rail, or you can provide the dimensions and we can ship your bannister rail directly to you to organise the install yourself.
When considering ageing in place, there are other elements you can do to improve your safety and your accessibility throughout your home. Upgrading your lighting, installing a ramp or step modifications can all help you to age in place. As home modification builders, we can personalise a solution that fits your physical and financial requirements.
