How to build a deck. Part 7, by http://www.qualitydecking.co.uk – Fitting deck handrails and decking balustrades.
Part 7 shows how a post and rail type decking balustrade is fitted. The system also known as an American handrail system utilises a wide flat top hand rail and deck spindles or balusters that are face fixed to two horizontal rails. The system is very quick to fit and is versatile in that the height of the handrail off the deck can be raised without the need for special lengths of timber. This can be especially useful if a deck handrail height of 1100mm is stipulated by building control for safety reasons. Q-Deck also offer a strength rated decking balustrade system.
