A handrail-wall bumper combination which includes improved structural features for the mounting of the handrail above the bumper section, providing a common appearing design for both vinyl and wood handrail portions and accommodating, in the case of either type of handrail, a smoothly contoured gripping surface, including a well-defined and highly visible accent strip. Smooth, tangentially transitioning concave and convex surfaces are provided in front and also in back of the handrail where, although not visible to the eye, such surfaces provide improved comfort and feel and reduce skin abrasions. Improved components are also provided for assembling corners and returns, including providing slightly enlarged support surfaces for longitudinal extensions of plastic cover elements to assure optimum surface alignment at joints. Improved arrangements are also provided for improving section-to-section alignment of wood handrail elements, by providing a continuous longitudinal recess in the metal handrail support, for receiving an alignment dowel.
