Popular North American design for contemporary deck railing
40 x 40 x 915mm clear grade Western Red Cedar square baluster planed smooth on 4 surfaces with eased edges. Being a clear grade product, the timber used is predominately clear vertical grain, with only very small, limited knots permitted within the grading rules. Clear grade balusters are ideal for Cedardeck Clear decking projects and also work well for railing mixed with hardwood decking projects for a unique appearance.
A popular method of constructing deck railing in North America is to attach 40 x 90mm Top/Lower Rails between square newel posts and run a 40 x 140mm Cap Rail across the top of the posts. Square Balusters are attached to the Top/Lower Rails. The top of the baluster butts up to the underside of the Cap Rail and bottom of the balusters can be cut at 45º to give a more finished look.
