  • Balustrading


The humble balustrade actually performs a number of functions, depending on where it has been installed. They are often used to provide a secure barrier (stopping those from walking up and down from tumbling over the edge) and to visually separate the flight from the rest of the room. They can also be used as a secure barrier on balconies, landings and other edges.

We have experience with a variety of different stairs balustrade designs and materials, so you can rest assured that we have the know-how to create a perfect solution for your home. Whether you’re after the classic appearance of timber, the contemporary look of stainless steel or the transparency of glass, Gowling Stairs can bring your idea to life.

Q1 – What is a balustrade?

The parts that join the handrail to the stringer are known as the balustrade (or a baluster if we’re talking about each beam individually). This is very important for lending your staircase strength.

Q2 – What is the difference between internal and external balustrades?

Essentially, balusters that have been installed outside will be exposed to a variety of atmospheric conditions (such as rain and snow), whereas those that have been installed inside will not be.
