These metal balusters are a hollow tube 1/2" square x 42" long . They are pretty easy to cut to length with hollow tube constructions but yet designed to pass all the strength tests necessary for the Ontario Building Code
We do have the engineered report for all clients that require this to obtain an occupancy permit with new home construction.
NOTE: These spindles do NOT have a round tapered top so ask for advice on installation... (the regular square spindles are hammered to a round end for easier installation into the underside of the handrail)
Square shoes are available for the foot of every spindle.
With a square metal spindle, you must drill a round, extra large installation hole to insert a square metal spindle into your round hole.. then a "shoe" or "foot" is used to cover the installation holes.
This baluster is available with one or two decorations per spindle. Often combined with the plain square 1/2" spindles in some alternating pattern.
Note that in almost ALL cases where you use metal spindles you must install 3 spindles per step in order to meet the requirements of no space between spindles that is bigger than 4". My understanding is that this regulation is pretty consistent across all North AMerican jurisdictions.
Send us an email with your requirements for these metal balusters and we'll get right back to you with pricing. Let us know if you also require wood newel posts or hardwood stairs to finish off your renovation project.
