    Balustrade FAQs

    Balustrades are a feature of many properties, used on staircases, terraces, balconies, roof tops, patios and many more places. They are designed to prevent any falls from said areas, providing safety for elevated spaces. Our timber balustrades are made out of oak, ash, maple or beech wood and typically feature a glass or steel panel.

    There are a number of steps to take into consideration when installing a timber balustrade, and it is recommended that hiring a professional team such as ourselves is the best option to ensure all safety regulations are adhered to and the quality of the installation is perfect. However, if you do qualify to be able to do it yourself with the necessary skills, you should consider the following:

    • Check all regulations are met so you comply with the minimum and maximum height and gap rules.
    • Try to always have assistance when working on the installation, you will benefit from having someone hold the materials in place as you attach your balustrades to the structure, and timber can be heavy.
    • Make sure to double check all measurements made of the area numerous times to ensure you have the correct sized timber balustrades, supports, fittings and panels.

    Before starting, make sure that you have the necessary tools to complete the project, these can include PPE Pencil, tape measure, string line and spirit level, drill/driver and screwdriver, a saw and appropriate screws.

    Our balustrades are varied in pricing depending on numerous factors, such as the type, size, which panels you use (glass panels are more cost effective, but steel panels are more sturdy), and more. If you would like to get an idea of certain costs, you can check our smart 3D balustrade planner or drop us a message.

    A balustrade is definitely necessary in any given situation where one or even both sides of a staircase, balcony, landing or any elevated space are open. This will prevent any risk of a fall, as a balustrade acts to create a safety barrier to falling and will support the handrail, making places such as staircases much more safe to use. If you’re just looking for an elevated aesthetic to your space, such as a patio, a balustrade can boost the area and provide a traditional or modern look depending on the style, helping your house or company building become much more appealing.
