Additional Connectors are used to extend or create your own axxys Wall Mounted Handrail Kits
All connectors are supplied with fixings
Left Hand End Connectors are used to connect the end of the rail to the wall. Whilst looking directly at the rail the Left Hand Connector fixes the left hand end of the rail to the wall.
Right Hand End Connectors are used to connect the end of the rail to the wall. Whilst looking directly at the rail the Right Hand Connector fixes the Right hand end of the rail to the wall.
Intermediate Connectors are used to join two lengths of rail together and fix them to the wall
Select the connector you need and either Chrome or Brushed Nickel metal finish
Starting from the first tread nosing, measure vertically a distance of 900mm and mark on the wall, making sure the mark is vertically level with the tread nosing using a spirit level
Next repeat this at the top of the flight, using the last tread nosing which leads onto the landing as your starting point
Now strike a plumb line through the two points, using a suitable marking tool that can be easily removed or a piece of taught string, this plumb line will enable you to mark the other Wall Patrices in the correct position.
Next you must measure the length of this line between the two vertical points that you have marked (x in the equation), then divide this number by 4 ensuring the result (y in the equation) is not more than 1000mm, and using your measurement mark these other centre positions along the line
Next you must cut the lengths of AXXYS Handrail down if the result of your calculated measurement is less than 1000mm. Using a suitable saw, mark and cut each length of Handrail down to your measurement, ensuring the cuts are accurate and level.
Now starting at the bottom using your first marked position, drill and secure the first Wall Patrice onto the wall using appropriate fixings
Please Note; Always remember to drill pilot holes with a suitably sized drill bit when fixing screws into timber, as this will prevent damage to the screw head and Patrice and ensure an easier fit. This is especially important when working with any variant of hardwood such as Oak
Repeat this and fix the next Wall Patrice moving up the stairs.
Next you can assemble a AXXYS Left Hand Connector or Right Hand Connector (depending on the orientation of your stairs) with a length of AXXYS Handrail and anAXXYS Intermediate connector using the fixing screws provided, making sure you have 2 screws going into the end grain and 2 screws underneath at the Intermediate Connector
Once the first section of the Handrail is assembled and securely tightened you can now offer this up to the Wall Patrices and fix using the screws provided, ensuring the connectors are mounted centrally and in line with the Wall Patrices
Continue up the stairs using the same procedure as before for assembling the next length of Handrail & Connectors.
Once assembled the second section can be inserted into the Intermediate connector of the first section and secured, making sure that it lines up with the Wall Patrice centrally before fixing
Once you are up to the final length of handrail, terminate the end using either Left Hand or Right Hand Connector and mount this to your last Wall Patrice, ensuring it is lined up with all marks and level in relation to all other Handrail sections
You have now completed the installation of the axxys Rail in a Box, you can now remove the original marked plumb line and check all fixings are secure and tightened.
Cleaning of the product can be done with a damp cloth or a lint free dry cloth depending on the level of cleaning required. Avoid the use of heavy detergents as this can damage the finish to the timber and metal connectors
