Rail Considerations for Sawn Balusters


Previous | Table of Contents | Next


Subrails
Any of our Handrails will work well with our Sawn Balusters if you use Subrails. The fact that the Balusters will be narrower than the Subrail above them is not a problem as long as they are installed centered on the Subrail. Unless you want a wider or fancier Handrail, our P2 with either BSR2 or SR2 Subrail, will work well.


Sloped-top Bottom Rails
For exterior use, the design of your bottom Railing is critical! Normal flat-topped Railing (Shoe) will NOT shed water properly. Worse, Rails with a channel (to receive Balusters) actually trap water! Also, interior Shoe styles appear very lightweight when used outside. Our Sloped-top Bottom Rail solves these problems!
