    We're planning a paver instal for a customer of ours which will consist of a two tiered patio. The customer wants us to install a hand rail around one of the patio and another one down a set of corner steps.

    Any good online places to order rails from?

    Also, any suggestions on installing handrails onto pavers?

    Go to a steel supply. Get yourself 2 pieces of 2"x2"x1/8" square tubing, 7' long each.

    and rail hieght is about 32-36". Concrete both posts in the spot you need them and fill the center with concrete. You can get pre cast caps for the 2x2 at the metal yard. Then get 2 rail brackets, and a piece of molded top rail. Weld it all together and paint it the color of choice. STS rated.

    Stainless Steel works real nice and lasts forever.
