Project # 130
Volute Handrail Fitting
While some people use handrail fittings for code purposes, others elect to attach them for aesthetic reasons. This project utilizes a left hand volute at the bottom of the stairway. A volute is a fitting that attaches to the end of a handrail to give it a gentle curve. Volutes give a staircase both an elegant and inviting feel. In addition, they look wonderful with a turned newel on a starting step. Along with the volutes, StairSuppliesTM has an array of handrail fittings, so you can find the perfect match to your style.
