Not sure how many balusters to order for your deck?


Don't sweat it -- the new railing Baluster Calculator at DecksDirect figures it out for you.


It's easy to use, just enter the details for your project: total length of railing, post size and baluster type. Using your data, the calculator will figure the total number of balusters needed, based on typical building code requirements of less than 4" of space between balusters. (But please note, you should still confirm all applicable code requirements with your local building department before starting any deck project.)

The calculator is pre-loaded with product specs for standard round and square balusters, glass balusters, and other popular styles and sizes from manufacturers like Dekor, Deckorators, Fortress Iron, and more. So you won't get a generic result, but one tailored to the manufacturer and style of baluster you selected.
