6002 Handrail is 2 3/4″ at its widest point & 1 5/8″ at its tallest point. The 6002 is the perfect handrail to use with our cable rail system. It’s made of out one piece of wood (unlike our 6000 handrail which is 2 pieces of wood glued together to reach the necessary thickness).
We purchase 2″ thick lumber and plane it down to 1 5/8″ thick, so that you are getting a solid piece of wood without any glue joints. This makes it ideal for interior or exterior (White Oak & Ipe only) applications. While this handrail is optimal for exterior use, you’ll want to purchase the product unfinished if you intend to use it outside. Our finish selection is currently made for interior use only.
The 6002 is available in Red Oak, White Oak, Ipe, Hard Maple, Poplar, Walnut & American Cherry.
Wood Grain & Color Variation
At StairSuppliesTM we strive to match the grain and color of all of our wood products as closely as possible. However, due to the natural character of wood products, there may be instances in which a perfect grain and color match is not possible. By ordering from StairSuppliesTM, you acknowledge that there may be some variation in the grain and color of your wood products.
This product has been used in the following "Completed Projects"
Are the screws to attach the handrail included with the metal posts?
The screws are not included because you could have wood or metal handrail. You can purchase the screws you’re interested by clicking here.
can this be made with a 1.5 inch plow? I’m putting it on top of a metal railing that has a 1/4 inch thick by 1 1/2 wide top that needs to fit into the plow area.
Can this come 13ft long?
Can you use the ipe for interior handrails
Do you provide extra stain/finish for the cut ends?
6002 handrails (ipe) do you offer a return to the wall as this code?

To discuss the specifics of your code requirements, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 866-226-6536.
What handrail species would stand up to weather naturally on a deck (exposed to rain & sun). Cypress, Teak, Ipe, or ?
For 6002 Exterior Use, we’d recommend any of the following wood types: Ipe, White Oak, Western Red Cedar, Cypress, and Sapele. If you’re intending to have us finish the handrail, please mention that it is an exterior handrail in the customer notes so that we apply an exterior-grade finish. If you decide to go with our 6000 handrail, you’ll want to mention that it’s being used as an exterior handrail so that we use exterior grade glue on the joints. Please let us know if you have additional questions or concerns. You can comment here, or speak with a representative at 866-226-6536.
For long runs across outside decks, how do you recommend joining the ends to give a seamless look?
We typically recommend utilizing a scarf joint as it is an extremely strong handrail joint. This is because it offers a large surface area to join the two pieces of handrail, which also serves to provide as seamless a look as possible. For more information, please read our blog on scarf joints.
Is it possible to mount your handrail to a wall?
Yes! I would recommend using our Stainless Steel Wall Mounted Handrail Bracket in order to accomplish this.
