What is a Balustrade?

Posted by Signature Stainless on 20 March 2013

What is a Balustrade?

What is a balustrade?  This is one of the most common questions that we get asked!

A balustrade is a railing (handrail) and the row of balusters (posts) that support it.

And yes, it is spelt "balustrade", although it is commonly misspelt as ballustrad, ballustrade or balluster.

A balustrade can also be known as railing, rail, banister, handrail and parapet.

Balustrades are installed at the side/edge of a staircase or balcony to prevent people from falling. 

At Signature Stainless, we offer a number of balustrade designs to suit your balcony design, stair railing and deck railing.  

If you are looking for a glass balustrade, stainless balustrade, stair balustrade or even just a handrail, we will have the design to suit your needs! Please browse our photo galleries and have a look!
