Hundreds of happy customers have bought this super value concrete balustrade from Earthtools over many years.
Finished in 'Natural Grey' or 'Cotswold buff' (dye added to the mix), this classically styled, moulded balustrade range has the appearance of natural stone at a fraction of the price. Products are moulded using Portland cement, slightly creamy grey in colour, which dries lighter over time, or can of course be painted white.

Yes, you can paint the balustrade and additional components with exterior house paint or masonry paint which you can find for sale at your local DIY store.
You can use good old fashioned sand and cement, choose 'Portland cement' for a match to our grey concrete balustrade.. For the buff colour, we supply you some dye to add to your mix. Or you can fix together with fixing adhesive designed for use with building materials.. an option is to use the fixing adhesive and then finish off with mortar.
The required overall height is 110cm. Our balusters are 81cm, plus the coping rail and base plinth at 7.6cm each giving a total height of 96.2cm, therefore, you will need to add a couple of courses of bricks or other materials to make up the additional 13.8cm. The larger concrete balusters have a steel rod running through the main body protruding through the concrete at the base. This adds strength but also aids in fixing by drilling alignment holes in the concrete base plinths. These balusters should be placed three per section, to keep gaps close. We recommend talking to a qualified builder with regard to installation.
If you measure your stretches in feet it makes it easier to work out.. Consider one section of balustrading to be 2ft and a matching pedestal 1ft. Draw yourself rectangles and squares in runs, where every four sections you have a pedestal. Once you have that laid out you can double the amount of rectangles for how many coping/base rails. Double the pedestals to give you the quantity of pedestal copings/bases. Add the pedestals. Lastly, you will need three balusters for each section. Add optional balls (2 sizes available) for each of the pedestals. For an exact fit, you may wish to cut copings/base rails to suit measurements.
