What Is – A Wreath
A wreath is the part of a handrail, or of a string, which is curved both in plan and elevation.
To distinguish between the two; the first is called a handrail wreath and the second a wreathed string. The term wreathed, or writhed signifying twisted, concave curves in strings and handrails which are not regular or geometrical curves but are graduated to satisfy the eye.
What Is A Wreath? by Precision Timber Handrails
A wreathed handrail is complex as the handrail profile follows a curve and rise whilst maintaining a level handrail.
Wreathed or curved handrails are produced using 5 axis CNC machines to sculpt the complex geometry of the handrail.
Possessing multiple machines capable of producing complex wreathed handrails and components, Precision Timber Handrails can manufacture handrails and bespoke timber components for any project requirements.
