Horizontal Balusters Against Code?

May 2, 2011

Why don’t they make horizonal deck balusters? Deck balusters are not available in a horizontal orientation because of building code restrictions. Most manufacturers do not make horizontal balusters because children have been hurt from using them as steps. Horizontal balusters therefore are against building codes in most cities. If you are thinking about making your own horizontal deck balisters please call your local building code inspecter to ask if horizontal balusters are allowed.

If you are looking for examples of verticle metal balusters take a look at our baluster pictures.

Need help with your deck design? Pro Deck Store offers free assistance in product selection for your Deck Railing Baluster.
