Please read all of the information below before ordering.

All stairs rope banisters (also known as handrails) come fully-assembled and ready for installation.

The rope banister brackets are all handmade by a blacksmith in Hertfordshire. Made from mild steel they are not just ornamental but strong and fit for purpose unlike nearly all the other stairs rope banister brackets you can buy off the shelf. If you can't see exactly what you want it can be made for you, either painted from a range of different colours (dearer) or plain for you to paint yourself (cheaper). The blacksmith uses powder paint that is baked on, so the paintwork should never chip. Brackets can be made for 24mm, 32mm and 36mm rope diameters.

Lead time: 2-4 weeks.

Rope banisters come ready for installation so all the brackets are on the rope.

The banister brackets are fixed equal distance from one another on the rope but if you're turning a corner or avoiding windows or an uneven bit of wall etc. then it's best to ask for the brackets to be 'floating' for you to fix to the rope yourself on-site. Request this in the 'Special Instructions' box. Note: Fixing the brackets to the rope is very easy with Blacksmith Banister Brackets but pretty difficult to do with the Chrome and Brass Banister Brackets.

For a little drape you only need to add 2% to your total length. The length is taken from the first and last bracket so that means the length does not include the 'Manrope Knots'.

Don't worry too much about drape as you can always move the end brackets an inch or two closer together to add drape or further apart to take it away when you install the banister rope.

Optional Brushed Steel and Copper Spray finishes, just 4.00 extra per bracket. They are covered in a lacquer finish, to protect the brushed steel finish from rust and to protect the copper spray from being rubbed off, and this gives the brackets a reflective finish.

If you have selected a rope that is larger than 36mm such as 40mm Manila or 48mm Synthetic Hemp then a 9.50 surcharge is applicable to each bracket as they take that much longer for the blacksmith to make.

How to Order a Rope Banister (Handrail)

  1. On the left, select the Type of Bracket you would like, choose the Finish (coating), then enter the number you require in the box above. I suggest 3 for a banister over 1.5 metres long; one bracket at either end plus one in the middle with a rope securing screw (included). Add these to your "Shopping Basket".
  2. Go to the rope page of your choice, choose 24mm, 32mm or 34mm diameter, type the correct length for your banister, choose either manrope knots or soft-eye splices at both ends, then add to your shopping basket.
  3. Your shopping basket should now show the rope you need and the brackets, so you can then order and pay. The product will be delivered to you with the brackets already attached to the rope.

For bespoke brackets please get in contact via email for a quote.

The total length of the finished product is inclusive of the end brackets.

I endeavour to make the banister as accurately as possible to your specifications but I work to a margin of error of 5cm in the finished length.

Remember to include drape in your calculations, should you want any.
