Custom-made Metal Balustrades East Lothian


For elegant stairways that command a certain status, custom-made metal balustrades are a must. John Telfer Ltd's creative designs and deep heritage as a traditional blacksmith will ensure that your stairways are much more than simply functional and will truly complement their surroundings. Balustrades, balusters and banisters - Often there is some confusion between the words. A baluster is a single pillar or spindle that supports a railing, while a balustrade is a row of balusters, in other words a collection of balusters make a balustrade. The balustrade supports a handrail, and the whole structure of balusters, balustrade and handrail are what make a banister. Some people call the handrail the banister, but it really means the whole structure.
