More Information

We supply hand and base rails for making your balustrading. This rail is for both the upper handrail and the lower base rail support for fixing the desired style of spindles. Constructed with pressure-treated timber to match our York decking boards, balustrading adds the finishing touch to your decking.

Please note: This style of balustrade rail may not be suitable for decks over 600mm above ground level or where a bay size between newels exceeds 1.8m.

For safety reasons, if the decking surface is 600mm or more above ground level, then the height of the handrail top must typically be a minimum of 1.1m above the surface of the decking boards. In addition, the gap between the deck surface and the bottom of the base rail should generally be 100mm maximum.

Please contact our Sales Team for alternative suggestions and advice.

Planning Permission

Installing decking and balustrading can sometimes require planning permission. Please check this link to the Government’s Planning Portal, which gives essential guidance on whether or not you should apply. If you are in any doubt, please check with your local planning office. Building Regulations usually apply to every deck structure requiring planning permission.

Alternative Product Information

To make installation easier, we have a 1.8m wide balustrade panel assembled and ready for you to fit.
