The latest innovation in stairs is a unique globally patented continuous handrail system from JELD-WEN. Developed specifically to meet customer requirements, JELD-WEN’s revolutionary design of the Conti Wall Handrail system is simple to install and looks great.

Phil Chimento, Assistant General Manager for JELD-WEN Stairs, explains: “The Conti Wall Handrail system offers a seamless solution to achieving aesthetically designed continuous handrails. Its simple push fit system means it creates a neat and discreet feature to a stair and reduces installation time and the need for specialist joinery skills on site.”

The Conti Wall handrail system features a robust zinc diecast construction that is available in an attractive white factory finish. The product requires no mechanical fixings and is available from May 2007 to suit all JELD-WEN’s standard size handrails. A brushed steel version will be released to complement contemporary staircases in the coming months.

JELD-WEN, which is one of the largest timber stairs manufacturers in the UK, is constantly developing new products that help housebuilders address the skills shortage and meet Building Regulation requirements. BS5395-1:2000 states that a wall handrail should be free from obstruction and preferably continuous throughout the stair – the Conti Wall Handrail meets this requirement perfectly.

With the increase in multiple winder stairs being specified for apartments and townhouses, demand for simple solutions to the problem of joining handrails, have never been so essential.

JELD-WEN provides a dedicated service to its stairs customers, which includes a made-to-measure service and technical support from its stair specialists who have expertise in providing bespoke staircases to meet specific customer needs.
