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.
Conditions for Exterior Use
If you are considering this product for exterior use, we strongly suggest that you use the wood species Ipe. While all species offered in this product will not contain glue joints, Ipe will outperform any other wood species in exterior conditions. You can also use our Endurance Series Handrail (offered in a limited number of species) that is specifically engineered for exterior use.
