Home Modular & Welded Handrail Systems

Star Metal's prefabricated industrial and safety railings are suitable for indoor or outdoor use, and are available in a range of designs, colours, shapes and sizes to satisfy any environment. The stylish clean lines of our railings are installed with an attractive finish of either powder-coated, satin finish stainless steel or galvanised steel.

From our Perth workshop, we supply a range of products to suit a variety of applications. We offer flexibility in design with non-standard free form curves and radius transitions.

Our range of industrial and safety handrails meets all Australian standards and can be adapted to meet your project needs.

Star Metal can provide custom profiles or products to meet your requirements.

Carefully remove any loose surface deposits with a wet sponge. Use a soft brush (non-abrasive) and a dilute solution of a mild detergent, e.g., pH-neutral liquid hand dishwashing detergent in warm water (DO NOT use solvents) to remove dust, salt, and other deposits. Rinse surfaces with clean water after cleaning to remove residue.

Stainless steel

Use a non-abrasive cloth with warm water for general cleaning. For removing fingerprints, use any glass cleaning products. Towel dry after cleaning to prevent water spotting. Ensuring it is Chloride free, Stainless steel cleaner is acceptable.


Use a non-abrasive cloth with ordinary laundry soap for general cleaning. Rinse the area with fresh water and simply wipe clean with a soft cloth.

For more stubborn or larger areas, the use of a low-pressure wash (such as a gurney gun), with pure water or in conjunction with cleaning materials such as car wash or truck wash. The car and truck cleaners are made to minimise corrosion on the metallic parts of vehicles so are generally suitable for use on galvanized steel although it is important that the steel be washed down with freshwater after cleaning.

If your galvanised steel is in a highly corrosive environment eg. coastal, heavy industrial, etc it is recommended it is rinsed with potable water on a regular basis, particularly under sheltered conditions (i.e. not exposed to rain and sun).

For multi-storey or multi-level applications, there are a number of benefits;

  • A versatile product that is totally customisable, all project specifications can be met.
  • Great for use in high traffic areas like public spaces as it is durable and tamper proof.
  • With the highest-level commercial compliance to Australian standards and Building codes of Australia, Star Metal’s Industrial and Safety Handrail Series is suitable for all applications.

Due to its strength and versatility our Industrial and Safety Handrails are well suited to a range of application, including;

  • Shopping centres
  • Mixed use developments
  • Multi-level high density residential
  • Primary schools and high schools
  • Government buildings – such as hospitals, outdoor public venues and recreations areas
  • Sporting facilities and stadiums
  • Universities
  • Loading bays and mezzanines
  • Footbridges and culverts
  • Aged care facilities

All handrail profiles are manufactured and installed to meet the minimum requirements of relevant Australian Standards.

Metallurgical testing is carried out on our materials to ensure quality.

All product comply with all relevant Australian Standards, statutory WHS Codes of Practice/Guidelines and Building Codes of Australia requirements, where applicable.

Each of our products are tested to comply with NATA (National Association of Testing Authorities, Australia) certification.

** Powder-coated Powder Coated and Painted handrail products uses black steel for fabrication, which is then sandblasted and then a zinc primer coating applied. The powder-coat / paint-coat is then applied over the zinc primer creating a dual shield coating with a decorative finish.


Colour choices are available for any powder coated products. Colours can be chosen from the Dulux and Interpon ranges.

Super Durable Polyester Thermosetting Powder Coating to comply with Australian Standard AS 3715, AAMA 2603 and AAMA 2604

Guaranteed performance on appropriately pre-treated aluminium and steel with excellent colour retention, super durable finish and on-trend anodised flat finish.

Stainless steel finishes 

  • Mirror polish (#8)
  • Satin finish (#4)
  • Mill finish
  • Electropolished


Mirror polish

Polishing of any type improves the texture, appearance, and consistency of stainless steel. In the case of mirror polish, it creates a surface with a brilliant shine.

The metal is pre-grinded to remove defects and then bright buffed to bring out a smooth reflective finish that shines even with the least bit of light.

The benefit of the mirror finish is that it also improves corrosion resistance. Further, mirror finish eliminates crevices, where corrosive particles deposit themselves.

Satin polish

A satin finish lacks the brilliant sheen of a mirror polish. The shine has been removed, but unlike a brushed polish, there are no visible brush strokes visible in the metal.

Mill Finish

A mill finish is a semi dull/semi reflective finish. It resembles a hazy mirror, with some reflection and is ideal for heavy traffic surfaces


Electropolishing removes a microscopically precise layer of surface material, to tolerances as low as +/-.0001”, depending on the alloy.

Electropolishing is a one-stop process for a micro-smooth, ultraclean, corrosion and pathogen-resistant surface finish – with 30 times more corrosion resistance than passivation

Electropolishing also eliminates the need for additional metal finishing processes like hand deburring, tumbling, pickling and cleaning.


Hot dip galvanizing is the process of immersing clean steel into molten zinc to obtain a coating that is metallurgically bonded to it. The process provides long term corrosion protection for steel and iron products.
