Versatile series wrought iron baluster, 1/2″ square by 44″ tall. This is available in both Solid & Hollow.
The 16.1.34 is one of the best selling wrought iron balusters in America. This features a single knuckle that is welded in place for years of beautiful service. If you need an adjustable knuckle then order the 16.2.1 and the 16.5.1. The single knuckle is complemented well by combinations with the double knuckle and the straight bar iron baluster.
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.

Are the hollow bausters as sturdy as the solid?
Hollow balusters provide just as much strength when it comes to supporting the handrail. They are not as strong when hit from the side. For example if you’re moving a couch up the stairs and you run a corner of the couch into a baluster a solid baluster is going to be less likely to bend. The hollow balusters are in no way weak, they just aren’t as strong in this instance as the solid balusters.
