|1 Home||Grooved Wall Mount Handrail||
Below are illustrated 3 types of railing
Core drill installation, floor-mount railings
FIRST - If any part of the railing must be screwed to another part to form a section or to form the complete railing, fasten them together with the screws or bolts provided.
Set the posts on the steps or the landing in the positions at which they will be installed - mark these spots.
Core drill 3" diameter holes that are 6 inches deep.
Dry fit the railing to be sure that the posts fit into the holes.
IMPORTANT - Slip the shoes onto the posts and temporarily tie them up with string so that they are out of the way.
Mix a good grade hydraulic cement such as Rockite according to the package directions.
Fill the holes completely.
Set the posts into the holes, positioning the railing.
Use temporary bracing to hold the railing plumb and level. Some of these hydraulic cements start to set up fairly fast so you will want to work quickly to position the railing correctly.
Be SURE to mound up the cement a bit so that no pools of water can form around the base of the posts. Rain water, hose water, etc. must be able to run off of the cement.
Discard the temporary bracing.
Let down the shoes.
Stand back to admire a fine job, well done.
Rockite - we use this because it expands slightly as it dries and
makes a really tight and secure installation
This is available at Ace Hardware, and probably other hardware
stores and on line.
Plate installation, , floor-mount railings:
plates with 4 screw holes are welded to the bottoms of the posts
concrete anchors are provided with which to screw the plates down
shoe for the railing post
Core drill installation - core drills can be found at your local rental store along with the 3" core drill bit needed.
Please click on the diagrams to enlarge them
Tools Needed for Railing Installation Using Shoe Posts -- this is not a core drill installation
hammer drill for drilling the concrete to put in the concrete bolts
drill motor with 5/16" chuck
Set railings in place
Mark the holes
Remove railing and drill just 1 hole for every foot
Replace feet and tap an anchor into the holes
Drill remainder of the holes through the feet
Put remaining anchors in
Do not tighten
Replace the shoe and railing on the feet posts
Lift shoe to tighten the anchors
Use self drilling and self tapping screws through the railing
posts and into the feet posts
Lower the shoe
Stand back and look at the fine job you did
