Hollow vs. Solid

Solid balusters have the traditional wrought iron weight & appearance that our customers love. Hollow balusters come with an exceptionally smooth finish. They are especially installation friendly as they are more lightweight and save time during the cutting phase of your project.

    Product Q&A

    3 years 8 months ago

    I need this item 52″ long for special condition. Is it available in that length or longer?

    Hi David,
    Unfortunately it isn’t, you’d need to purchase them and then have a local metal worker weld them into longer pieces. Please let us know if you have any other questions.

    I purchased solid 16.1.2 Double Twist Iron Baluster and hollow 16.1.3 Single Basket Iron Baluster but when measuring them for installation I need to cut all of them on both ends or the twist will be too low and wont fit in the shoes and will not look right.. Is it okay to cut the top round end too?

    You may cut on both sides but you will lose the rounded end at the top. The round end is designed to aid with installation. With it, you’re able to drill a small hole in your handrail and use epoxy to seal it. If you cut that round side off, you can still drill round holes but I’d recommend using one of our Aluminum Shoes to cover the hole.

    For the iron balusters, the installation instructions say to use a 5/8″ drill bit. I can see that works for the top where the baluster is round. However, if the bottom is 1/2″ square, the diagonal is more than 5/8″ so how does that fit in the recommended hole diameter? Thank you.

    Thanks for contacting us Gary,

    I measured a sample iron baluster, and you’re right, you would need to drill a 3/4″ hole for the square end of the baluster to fit. A 1/2″ hole will work fine for the rounded end.

    I will look into why the instructions are written that way.

    what is the recommended spacing center to center for the Balusters ?

    3 months 8 days ago

    Thanks for the question Ed.

    Building codes vary county to county, so you’ll need to confirm what the code is in your area. The most common railing code enforces the 4” Sphere Rule, which prohibits gaps in railing large enough for a sphere 4” in diameter to fit through. Spacing balusters 3″ or 3.5″ apart, center to center would put you well within this common code.
