Twist Series wrought iron balusters, 1/2″ square by 44″ tall. Twist Series balusters are available in both Solid & Hollow.
The 16.1.1 is simple with a single twist; use this to reduce clutter between basket balusters.
Solid balusters are more traditional and have the appearance of wrought iron. Hollow balusters have a smoother finish, without the character marks of wrought iron. Installers love hollow balusters since they are lighter in weight and can be cut at a fraction of the time.
All Wrought Iron Balusters are 44″ tall and designed to be cut down on site.

while I am getting ready to change out the wooden baluster with wrought iron I thought the job would be straight forward. If I replace the all balusters with iron the spacing will be 5 inches apart. Do you have any recommendations so I don’t have to refinish the treads? Isn’t building code 4″? What about a house that is 1- years old?
You are correct, building code is typically 4″ (but that can vary from county to county). Unfortunately we don’t really have a great solutions for this situation. Probably the first think you will want to do is contact your local code office, and see if they will grandfather you in based on the previous spacing.
If they will not, and you don’t want to replace all your treads, you could buy something like our 6006 shoerail and put that on top of your treads to hide the old holes.
I hope that helps. Please let us know if you have any other questions.
I am planning on using solid 16.1.1 balusters on a covered outdoor stair. I see in the installation manual that these are powder coated, so I would think that the finish should hold up well. Do you see a concern with installing outdoors?
Also, I will be using PVC handrails and treads. Will your epoxy system work OK for this?
The powder coat on our wrought iron balusters is actually not recommended for exterior use. Our epoxy is formulated to adhere metal to wood, so we would suggest looking for an epoxy or another adhesive that is specific to your PVC application. I hope this helps. Please feel free to let us know if you have any additional questions.
