HOW TO FIT METAL BALUSTRADES
Our range of metal balustrades have been designed so that any competent DIY’er can save money by installing it themselves.
Fitting guide for securing bolt down metal posts to hard surface such as timber or composite decking, paving slabs, concrete etc for metal balustrades or railings.
Position first post. Mark holes and carefully drill suitable hole for fixings. We recommend starting with a pilot hole then move to correct drill size. Fixings to secure post to ground are not included.
Ensure post is level and secure post using your selected fixings. Measure distance to the second post, level, drill and fix. The distance between the posts can be up to 20mm wider than the ballustrade but for finished look, try not to have a gap of more than 10mm (5mm per side).
To make fitting easier, place balustrade between posts on packers (100mm high) and clamp.
Using fixings supplied, fix balustrade to posts (one fixing per corner).
Repeat process to fit remaining balustrades. That’s it! Enjoy your new balustrade area!
