A balustrade is a type of railing or barrier that is often installed on the edges of decks and balconies. It serves both as a safety measure, preventing falls from elevated platforms, and as an aesthetic feature, separating larger decking areas.
Planning regulations can be complex, so it's always advisable to consult with your local planning office to ensure you're in compliance.
The ideal material for your balustrade will depend on the style of your decking and the purpose of the balustrade. Rest assured, all balustrade materials we provide are robust enough for high installations. During your free site visit, one of our surveyors can help you determine the best options.
According to UK building regulations, for safety purposes, balustrades should be installed at a height of 1100mm. Most products are manufactured to this height standard, even though not all balustrades are required to comply with these rules.
While some products come with self-installation guides, we generally recommend seeking professional advice. Certain regulations, including building codes, may apply to balustrade installations. Non-compliance could potentially result in the need to dismantle improperly installed balustrades.
Adding a new balustrade to existing decking may be feasible, but it will depend on the structure of the existing sub-frame. Our surveyors can examine your current setup and provide guidance on the available options.
