Do I need to use an Intrim chair rail to fix the handrail brackets or is the fixing to plasterboard sufficient?

Fixing the Intrim ConnectaRail Handrail brackets to the plasterboard is sufficient if there are noggins placed in the wall at the correct height for bracket fixing prior to plasterboard. We recommend the use of an Intrim Chair Rail for added support along the length of the wall to affix the brackets to if noggins are not in the correct positions to provide the structural support.

Can you assist with helping get the right quantities for a project?

If you can send us drawings of the project well-marked where the handrail needs to go, we have an estimating process that can do a take-off for you. Keep in mind this an estimatation and we recommend double checking with a builder before placing any orders. Depending on the project and your installer will vary on the amount of wastage. Ensure you confirm your quantities with your installer before placing your order.
