History of the Balustrade and Baluster

The terms Balustrade or Banister are the words that are commonly used when describing the components that make up a railing or guard system.  The Balusters are the upright posts that act as the support of the system, usually spaced evenly along the balustrade. The Balustrade was traditionally made of wood and clay and other metal components.

What can you have internally?

There are many different settings where a balustrade would be needed inside a building, mainly on a mezzanine level balcony, a well balcony, or a staircase balustrade.

A mezzanine, sometimes referred to as a viewing gallery, is most typically a short level between the ground floor of a building and the first floor with a balcony.

To comply with Building Regulations, internal balustrades in domestic locations that serve a single family need only be 900mm high, whereas external balconies need to be at least 1100mm high.

Regulations also talk about gaps, and it is important to see and check that the width between balusters Are not wide enough for a child to fit through. Regulations state that a sphere (ball) of 10cm should not be able to be squeezed through anywhere on a balcony or balustrade.

You can also have a well balustrade where you can see down to the next level or levels. Balustrades can also run down a staircase, acting as a handrail support and the baluster guards.

What materials are typically used for an internal balcony?

In the past, conventional balustrades were primarily crafted from wood or clay. While wood remains a prevalent choice for internal balustrades, other materials such as wrought iron, stone, and various metals are also utilized. However, for a more luxurious and higher-priced option, the Glass Balustrade stands out.
