Handrail fittings are used in an Over the Post Balustrade system to provide a continuous, uninterrupted handrail from the top to bottom of the stairway. With this system, you can run your hand along the top of the handrail without the “interruption” of the post sticking up over the railing. Our fittings are created of the finest American Cherry, Brazilian Cherry, Hickory, Hard Maple, Red Oak and White Oak to provide you with the quality you have come to expect from StairPartsUSA.com.We realize that determining the right rail fitting for your staircase can be difficult. We are here to help you. We offer a complete set of fittings for our 6115, 6900 and 6010 handrail.
