Polyurethane Balustrade Quote Tool
1. Choose a Rail Width
The first step is to choose a rail width. You should pick something that fits into your property’s aesthetic and dimensions. We offer four different options and have mentioned them below. Take accurate measurements of the installation site and then decide on a rail width. Our width options include:
If you’re still concerned about the dimensions, speak with our customer care team to get some assistance. They are available through chat and phone so you can ask them everything you need to know.
2. Select Your Preferred Baluster
Once you have decided on the rail width, consider the baluster designs. We offer several options to ensure clients can customize the appearance of the balustrade according to their property’s décor. There are five design options available and they include:
Look at the pictures provided carefully and determine which design is most appealing. All five designs are elegant, uniform, and great for different kinds of decors like contemporary, urban, classical, and rustic. The balusters are made from high-quality materials and designed to stand the test of time.
3. Choose the Rail Height
It is important to choose the railing height carefully to ensure it provides the best support. Look at your local building code requirements to ensure your railing can pass inspections. We also recommend checking with your family members to see which dimensions are suitable for them. We offer different size options ranging from less than 36” and more than 42”. Measure the installation site carefully before calculating the size of the railings.
If you’re not certain, share the dimensions of the installation site with our experts. They will recommend the best fit based on your details.
4. Rail Lengths and Quantity
The next step is to determine the rail length and quantity. This depends on how much area you need to cover. We offer lengths ranging from 4’ to 12’. You can also choose rails of varying lengths if necessary. For example, you can choose a few 10’ sections and a couple of 4’ inch sections to cover the entire installation site with minimal wastage.
We offer 4’, 5’, 6’, 8’, 10’, and 12’ sections to clients, which makes installation easier and reduces cutting or alteration requirements.
5. Mention Whether the Rail Sections Go Down a Stair
If your rail sections go down the staircase, we will need to adjust their dimensions a little to ensure they fit in perfectly. Make sure you choose the right option while placing an order for the polyurethane balustrade. The installation will be significantly difficult if the balustrade isn’t designed properly for staircase installation.
Mention how many staircase rail sections you will need in the provided box. The staircase sections must be different from regular railing sections.
6. Rail Sections for a Radius Balcony
Radius balconies are curved and have a semi-circle design. Ordinary railings can’t fit in such balconies so you need to mention that in our tool. Calculate the number of radius sections you will need to and mention it in the form. We will enquire about the dimensions of the installation site later.
7. Select the Newel Post
The newel posts are usually installed at the beginning and end of railing structures. They give the installation some structure and provide strong support to the railings. We offer four different kinds of newel posts to our clients. Make sure the post design complements the baluster design well before placing your order.
- Recessed Straight
- Recessed Corner
- Recessed End
Once you have chosen a design you like, mention quantity in the box provided. For example, if you have two sets of railings on either side of a staircase, you may need four newel posts.
8. Choose Newel Cap
The next step is to choose the newel cap. We provide three options that can fit in perfectly with the newel post and baluster design. As an established balustrade manufacturer, we make sure these caps are made from high-quality materials.
9. Provide Details
The final step is to share your name, zip code, email, phone number, role, project type, and comments. This helps us understand your requirements and gives us a way to contact you with a detailed quote. As an experienced balustrade supplier, we make sure our quotes are transparent and straightforward.
