stair hand rail
A 90 degree handrail fitting. Our current stair system does not have a new post at the top of the stairs. The hand rail makes a 180 degree turn at the top of the landing to follow the hallway. I would like to add a new post at the top landing. I would like to center the handrail going up the stairs with the newel post. I would then need to make a 90 degree turn almost immediately, about 4" from the top newel post with the upstairs handrail. I am looking at LJ smith stair systems. The have premanufactured fittings for turns in the handrail. I figured a plowed handrail system would be easier to install. Their fittings have a nice smooth corner. I could just miter the handrail but the corner would be a little sharp.
