2 step handrail

You can buy different types of 2 step handrails and install them yourself. You also can use a 2 step handrail for retrofitting existing buildings for insurance and accessibility compliance. A basic wooden handrail is relatively inexpensive and can add safety to a home or business. If you, family members or customers slip occasionally on steps while walking on your property you can take action to prevent a serious accident in the future. Adding a 2 step handrail is one way to ensure safety for your family and all visitors. Customized variations are available at home improvement stores and online.
