These handrail balusters look like wrought iron due to the 5/8" square dimension, and black color. Total length is 33.5" including 2+ inch flatted ends for overlap, requring 29" between upper and lower rails. Or, flipped around, they can mount on their back side and save 3 inches in height if retrofitting. Using std 2-by boards with gap under, handrail height ranges from 35" to 44", depending on lumber width used. Home building stores seem to not sell square, which is the best architectural shape for strength while minimizing view blockage. Balusters come in boxes of 84 for a 28' run of rail, and can be broken down for custom quantities. The ends are flatted and pierced for mounting screws for quick easy handrail installation. The top and bottom handrails are curved slightly for a unique sculpted look. Stair railing also since they are infinitely adjustable for angle. They require wood rails across top and bottom to screw to, usually 2x4 lumber for horizontal rails and 2x3 for stairs is optional, but helpful..In fact, 2x3 P.T. rails all around looks really great. Can mount to 1x2 aluminum channel as well, and have done installations with TREX. Building code requires a rail for a 3' drop or more, and a 4" diameter sphere cannot pass through the balusters for baby safety, or 6" for step corner triangles. Located in N.Ky.
