Introduction to Balustrade

Reconstituted stone balustrade can be used to form a subtle yet effective barrier. It is often placed along changes of levels or used to create a strong, practical and elegant feature.

Single width balustrades are more suitable to being used at the edge of a drop or change of levels as no part of the balustrade is wider than the plinth course.

Component Guide

The Product

All of our balustrades are hand made in high quality reconstituted stone. This mixture of sands, crushed aggregates and Portland cement produces stonework with fine detail and sharp definition. The finished product looks and feels just like natural stone. In addition, ribbed stainless steel bar is used to reinforce all of our balusters ensuring the maximum possible lifespan for the stonework.

Replacement Balusters

Decades of producing stonework for companies in the restoration industry, have left Kent Balusters with the largest range of baluster moulds in the country.

Our on-line database of replacement balusters caters for companies or individuals who are restoring an old or damaged balustrade. The balusters range from just a few inches tall to nearly three feet tall. In the vast majority of cases they are not inter-changeable with the balusters in our standard balustrades.
