Choosing the right spindles for your staircase


Spindles are a great way to add some refinement and style to your staircase. Whether undergoing a staircase renovation or a completely new staircase installation the spindles will define the final look of your staircase. Spindles (also known as the baluster) are the vertical posts that act as supports between the base rail and the handrail of your staircase.  As an important  part of a balustrade, spindles are an important safety feature of your staircase preventing trips and falls when using the stairs.


A & T Carpentry offer a wide range of supplied and fitted spindle designs.
