About Softwood Treated Handrails
These are a popular choice for outdoor decks and balconies due to their durability, affordability, and natural aesthetic. Softwood is known for its strength and versatility, and is often used in the construction of a variety of different structures, including handrails.
It is very long lasting and is able to withstand the wear and tear of daily use, as well as the outdoor elements. Usually, to withstand these conditions, handrails are treated with a protective coating that helps extend their lifespan and prevent rot and decay. This type of wood is generally less expensive than others, making it ideal for people on a budget. If these handrails are treated with a protective coating, this means they will require less maintenance and this over time will also save you money.
