Whether it be for safety or purely aesthetic purposes, balustrade at the edge of a deck can come in various different forms – timber post, rail and spindle construction in a design of choice, stainless tensioned wires, toughened glass, or even inset seating. If your deck needs to be child or pet friendly, a gate can be fitted in a matching design to keep the area safe but also accessible. On a lower level deck, options may include an inbuilt bench or planter along the edge.
