Remove Old Steel Railings

To remove the stainless steel railing you need to first remove any screws that might be holding the railing brackets to the wall. The best tool to use here is the screwdriver.

Once you have removed all the screws you should place an 8-inch blade in the reciprocating saw and set the saw against the vertical supports of the steel handrail. For ideal results you should ensure that you place the saw as low to the ground as possible.

While holding the reciprocating saw to the railing support, you should depress the trigger of the saw and cut through the vertical support of the railings.

If the railing is longer than you can handle, you should cut the horizontal bars. Here you should cut in the same way that you cut the vertical support. If you find it difficult to cut, you should consider changing the saw blade and replace it with a sharp blade.

You should continue and cut through each old steel railing post and remove the entire handrail.

After doing this you should attach a ¼ inch thick hard grinding wheel to a 4-inch grinder and grind the stub of the vertical railing. If the stub is longer than ¼ inch, you should place the grinding wheel on the ground, against the vertical support extending from the ground and cut the stub off the ground.

To make the cut surface smooth and even with the floor, you should file it down.

Once you have done this, you should not leave the metal filings on the ground. This is because they rust quickly and they can easily stain concrete. To be on the safe side you should clean the area immediately. Here you should use warm soapy water and a wire brush to remove any rust stains that might be there.

You should note that steel is recyclable; therefore, you should not throw the railing in the general trash bin. The best way of disposing it is taking it to a scrap yard where it will be recycled.

Since you will be using machines in the process of removing the stainless steel railing, you need to be very careful when handling the machines. This is to avoid injuries.
