Staircases with railings are used wherever there is a difference in height: for example, the ascent from the ground to the first-floor level or between two floors in a private house. Horizontal railing for decks is in demand both in cottages and summer houses. And in addition, are used in social, commercial, and industrial buildings and facilities.
In terms of placement, there is a distinction between railings inside the house and outside. Interior staircases usually lead from the first to the second floor, as well as from the basement to the first floor, and from the second floor to the attic. Outdoor enclosures of a private home most often frame the porch (entrance staircase).
When selecting the material and type of horizontal railing outdoor necessarily take into account the influence of external (weather) factors. And for interior, above all, a comfortable and beautiful railing.
There is a variety of types of railings for stairs. They differ in design, construction, the material of manufacture, size, method of production and installation. The choice of one or another type always comes from several factors:
· the location and length of the stairs;
· characteristics of the building and room;
· the configuration of a staircase;
· interior design (for horizontal railing indoor);
· budget possibilities;
· quantity of steps;
· individual wishes of the customer..

· plastic (PVC);
· glass (in combination with metal);
· concrete, brick, stone.
The most common are steel horizontal railing, because metal is a very strong and durable material. The horizontal metal railing exterior reliably protects, is durable, and in addition, looks beautiful. Especially popular products are made of stainless steel.
Wooden railings are less durable but are also widely used. They fit harmoniously into the traditional style. Stone (concrete) structures are most often installed in the street, as they effectively resist weather factors.
Plastic and glass are usually used in combination with more practical metals (combined railings). For example, metal posts are installed on which glass and plastic parts are fixed. For example, the handrail is often made of PVC.
Recently, modern aluminum railings for stairs are gaining recognition. Aluminum is durable, beautiful and, importantly, lightweight material. Such a railing does not create a heavy load on the staircase design. In addition, there is the widest choice of aluminum designs, including combinations with glass and PVC. The only downside is that aluminum railings can only be used outside the house.
