Handrails to add the extra polish

The right handrail material will take your deck beauty to the next level.

#1Decks offers a huge range of handrail styles. Handrails are imports for obvious safety reason but can also give the outdoor area a really smart look and finish the job right off. Not every house suits every handrail and it is important to select the right handrail for your house style.

Safety in Style


There are certain codes we must comply with when installing a handrail, these codes can quite often change and we always ensure that we keep updated with any changes from the Master Builders Association (MBA) which we are a member of.

Your Decking Handrail Questions Answered


It depends on the size of your deck and proximity to boundary setbacks. But don’t worry, this is definitely something we can help you with.

Composites have come a long way since they were first released. But you still need to be careful in which composite board you choose, as there are a lot in the market and plenty that don’t stand up well in the Aussie conditions. We use and recommend the following boards: Deckroator, Nexgen, Millboard and Apex Decking. All these are good quality and there is a good range in price, look and colour within these products.

This is something we would need to assess on the job to be completely sure on the best subframe. But as a rule of thumb, if your deck is less than 400mm high, we would recommend either aluminium subframe or H4 lowdeck. Stay away from having H3 timber low to the ground, as they aren’t suited for this application.

This is a really hot trend at the moment and something we specialise in. The way you can achieve the grey timber look is by letting the timber dry out from the weather and silver off. Whilst all timbers will grey off, the selection of the timber is critical for the longevity of your deck. For this, we prefer the following timbers: Thermory, Teak and Mahogany. These timbers are really stable and won’t get splintery once left to dry out (like most Aussie gums will). 

This varies depending on the size and complexity of the deck – ranging from a few days for smaller, more straightforward designs, to a few weeks for larger, more detailed designs.

We can also help design and build the perfect alfresco areas, patios and pergolas.
