Balustrades are barriers and screens which guard against falls from heights as required by building regulations. These safety features can sometimes look bland, which is why we work with creative director Martine Le Gassick.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the definition of a balustrade?

Balustrades are a barrier, often characterised as a row of uprights with a rail on top or a metal panel that affixes to other panels. They are designed as a safety feature to prevent potential falls. Often seen around the tops of stairs or on balconies, they act as a barricade to keep you and your family safe.

What is the difference between a balustrade and a handrail?

A handrail is a key safety feature, typically set at 1100mm from finished floor level on balconies, and 900mm above stair level, for people to hold onto and to prevent falls. The balustrade panels fill in the space between the handrail and the floor. They are sometimes called “infill panels”.

Do I need a balustrade?

Whether or not you need a balustrade will depend on the type of property. For domestic properties, balustrades are required if there is a difference of more than 600mm between levels. If, however, you own a commercial property, the height difference requirement is reduced to 380mm. This will help to protect potential customers from falls.

How high should a balustrade be?

The height of a balustrade will vary depending on the type of property and the specific requirements. If you are guarding a landing area or a balcony, the barrier should be a minimum of 1100mm above the Finished Floor Level or FFL. All of the Stark & Greensmith balustrades meet this requirement so you have complete peace of mind.

How big can gaps be in balustrades?

The spacing for balustrades should be narrow or small enough that a 100mm sphere would not be able to pass through. With an extensive range of metal balustrades to choose from, all of our designs at Stark & Greensmith meet these requirements, helping to keep your family safe while adding a stunning feature to your property.
