UK Stair Parts

Balusters, Wooden Stair Balusters

Known in the UK as Spindles – ‘Balusters’ is the American term which is growing in use across the industry. A Spindle, or Baluster refers to the vertical piece of wood which fills the gap inbetween your handrail, and your base rail. Instantly recognisable, they are a key part of staircase design – and can really help in creating the perfect staircase in your home.

As well as looking great, Balusters also serve an important purpose – they provide safety and security against individuals falling down the stairs in between the rail and base rail – and in many cases they are also key in supporting the handrail.

Available in a range of contemporary and traditional designs, many of which feature decorative twists, they are also available in a wide range of timbers which look great either treated or untreated.  

All of our Balusters have been created in the most popular sizes, although you can get in touch if you need something custom made – our in house manufacturing teams can almost always create the right solution for you.

If you have any questions – please do just get in touch and we will be happy to help.
