I need a 12 foot rail for this staircase to aid my elderly parents. What would be the best options? Is the install cumbersome for a cinderblock wall.

Asked by Tehmina May 4, 2021

Answer

Hi Tehmina. We offer a kit containing two 6' handrails with only one end factory bent on each handrail so you can splice them together with the included 5" internal splice. It also contains four wall mounting brackets. I recommend purchasing (4) 5/16" x 2.5" masonry sleeve anchors to attach the brackets to your cinderblock wall. Be careful not to overtighten as it can cause the blocks to break/crumble. Email support@ezhandrail.com to coordinate purchasing the 12' kit (model#EZA12KWR-CV) as it is not available on homedepot.com yet (5/5/21). Thank you for your question. Dan H. (EZ Handrail Dev.

can these be mounted to brick wall and brick stairs

Asked by jjm April 19, 2021

Answer

Hi Jim. Yes, this handrail is installed on brick walls every day. As you may know there are a wide variety of brick types out there. We've found the best overall fastener into brick to be a 5/16" x 2-1/2" sleeve anchor. If the bricks are honeycomb or hollow and won't hold a fastener, a Tapcon works good into the grout with epoxy to reduce the sand deterioration; however, they will loosen over time with use. Email us at support@ezhandrail.com with job specific questions and visit ezhandrail.com for installation videos. Thank you for your question. Dan H. (EZ Handrail Dev. Team)

I would like to match oil-rubbed bronze ballisters. Would the copper be too light? Thank you.

Dan H., Thank you so much for sending the sample! The copper was a great match for our oil-rubbed bronze balusters! It was a much better fit than black. (See pics) We ordered the 8’, used a pipe cutter on it to fit our 7’ space, and installed. It looks great and is very sturdy with the matching brackets!

Can you make 12 ft long with brackets

Asked by Pepe September 20, 2020

Answers

Hi Pepe. As someone mentioned, to achieve a 12' handrail we recommend two 6' lengths (EZA6KIT-CV and EZA100-6CV) and use our internal splice (eza650-M). Thank you for your question. Dan H. (EZ Handrail Dev Team)

Can this rail be cut to a specific length? Is there a way to attach a cut end directly to concrete?

Asked by Jessica August 4, 2020
2
Answers

Hi Jessica. Yes, the handrail can be cut to any length using a 40-60 tooth WOOD blade on your circular, miter, or chop saw. Yes, you can connect directly to concrete using the EZA400-HB or a new bracket (EZA275-HB) that is not listed on homedepot.com yet (8/5/20). You can email us at support@ezhandrail.com to review a photo and/or purchase this new adjustable bracket. Thank you for your question. Dan H. (EZ Handrail Dev. Team)

I need 16’ of this product Can it be extended or installed next to itself for a nice clean look

Asked by LB February 25, 2020
1
Answer

Hi LB. There are a couple of options: 1) We have a 16' kit that contains (2) 95.25" handrails and a 5" splice that fits internally to mate the round handrails together. As of 2/25/20 this kit is not available on homedepot.com; however we're working diligently to make it (as well as 12' kits) available in the coming months. In the meantime, please email/call us at support@ezhandrail.com or 573.365.7085 opt. 1 to setup a purchase through your local store (model# EZA16KIT-HB). It is imperative to contact us because store associates will not have proper ordering information. 2) We offer a 24' standalone handrail (no accessories) model #EZA100-HB. You can then cut the handrail to your desired length and insert the endcaps. This is the cleanest look (no seams) and the additional 8' length can be used to make another handrail for a a porch or garage. For this solution you will need: (1) EZA100-24HB (4) EZA200-HB (2) EZA410-HB Thank you for your timely question. Dan H. (EZ Handrail Dev. Team)

Instructions were ample and straight forward for the average DIY. Finish and fit really made the project stand out and detail to colored bolt covers is an example. I combined a pressure treated 4x4 with pvc covers/caps for posts and used EZ rail to connect and tie together. Only complaint is the lag bolt needs a SS washer to prevent bolt from chipping bracket base when tightening. Luckily the bolt cover ..well..covered it. Also for the caps I would of preferred a set screw rather than forcefully hammering in the end caps which was difficult. For a painted pipe and brackets the price was average.

Rail is well constructed and came with all necessary bolts and even the correct drill bit. Priced on the high side but it is a very good product. Not sure how it will last in the outdoor elements at this stage.

I am female average DIYer, and needed to replace wood handrail that rotted. Found EZ Handrail as above average quality (basically a pipe), and moderate assembly ability needed. Need two people to assemble. All parts were included with purchase, thus, loved that I did not need to get extra pieces. Only issue, believe it is a high cost for basic materials. 3 pieces of pipe for $500 is investment. Your paying for convenience. If your looking for handrail that will be around for long period, looks great, and dont have heartburn about cost, then this is for you.
