To ensure children cannot get their head stuck in the gaps – the maximum gap between spindles must not exceed 100mm.
To achieve this spacing you need to allow for 8 spindles per metre of the handrail.
Spindles can be attached in various ways depending on the type of balustrade being made.
the most usual is by woodscrew through the top and bottom rails, into the ends of the spindles.
Whatever style of balustrade you are making we recommend using external quality screws.
