Building a Timber Handrail or Barrier
An external timber handrail is essential for any deck higher than 1m, although they will help improve safety even on lower decks. Specific requirements apply for decks higher than 4m. There are also requirements for the types of materials and spacing that can be used depending on the height of the deck.
Building a safe handrail or timber barrier takes into account weather conditions and the weight of people leaning or falling into the handrail. Width, spacing, bracing, and materials will be selected to suit the safety requirements of the project while creating a nice design aesthetic.
With all the materials available for the balusters, connectors, and infills, there are literally hundreds of design combinations to choose from. Call Macarthur Decks and Pergolas so we can walk you through some options and come up with the best solution for your timber handrail or barrier.
