Railings for steps – Handrails increase people’s safety by using cement steps. Installation of handrails does not require renting expensive core drilling equipment. Rails that have metal feet are installed on the vertical supports installed with concrete anchors. Drop-in concrete anchors tie in a hole drilled into cement steps and provide a stable safe point for bolts used to attach railings to cement steps. If your handrail does not have metal plate feet, a metal sheet manufacturing shop can quickly add Feet to your railings. This will prove cheaper than core drilling and gluing the railings to cement steps
Lay the railings for steps on the cement step. Each of the railing’s feet should be flat on the corresponding step. Measure from the edge of the cement step to the side of the shelf feet, ensuring that each foot is evenly spaced from the stair edge. And then mark the position of each. The feet mounting holes on cement steps with a permanent marker. And also remove the railing. Then put the masonry slightly into the hammer drilled. Adjust the depth gauge of drill drilled to the depth recommended by the specific anchor manufacturer. Wrap tape around the drill. Make the base of electrical tape even with the hammer drilled’s depth gauge.

And then place the hose of the vacuum cleaner over each hole to remove dust created as drilling of holes in cement. Insert 5 / 8th inch plumbing brush into each hole. Twist the brush into the hole and pull the brush straight up with the vacuum cleaner hose at the bottom of the hole. And when each hole is clean, proceed to step six. Insert a 3/8th inch drop-in anchor into each hole as you drill and clean. And then place the tool in the anchor. Hit the tool with the hammer to secure the anchor in each hole.
Replace the railing. Thread a 3 / 8th inch bolt into each concrete anchor. Leaves bolt loose. Then measure from the edge of the cement step to the foot of the vertical handrail support located on the top cement step. Lie down one of the bolts that lie in that foot with ratchet and 9/16th inch plug. And then put the dimension you have on the top step of the foot of railings for steps located at the lowest cement step. The tighten bolts are located in all handrails feet. Stand on the ground and use your hands to put pressure on the railing to ensure it is stable. Tighten the bolts occasionally to keep the handrails secure.
