Balustrade - a railing at the side of a staircase or balcony to prevent people from falling
Balustrades are the vertical supports for a handrail but contemporary balustrades include glass panels, stainless steel cables and wrought iron or timber balusters - Our range of timber and iron Balusters are shown to the right.
Glass used for balustrades is toughened glass, produced through a process of rapid heating and cooling, causing it to become toughened and four to five times stronger than ordinary glass.
Timber balustrades can be stained to go with polished timber flooring or painted to match your decor. A range of decorative newel posts can be incorporated for the more traditional staircase
