Standard Balustrades Calculator
The maximum span between posts centres is 1800mm.
To work out your requirements divide the running length (straight run without breaks, if you have more breaks again measure then length) of your balustrade by 1800mm to work out the amount of kits you will need. (You will need a starter end kit for each run and then followed by additional kits).
For example if the overall length of your fencing is 10m you would divide 10m by 1.8m = 6 (rounded up) kits. This would be broken down as follows
1: No – Starter end kit
5: No – Additionalkit– These are available in the following heights
- 880mm (3 foot)
- 1195mm (4 foot)
- 1510mm (5 foot)
- 1825mm (6 foot)
