Balustrade Measure

How-to guide

Steps to create a fencing plan

Show all Hide all
Define the area

Draw the area where your balustrade will be located. Take note of important features, such as:

  • Your house position
  • Concrete and decking
  • Existing structures
  • Posts or brick columns
  • Stairs
  • Any object in the path of the balustrade
Take measurements

Measure the distances between points of your balustrade line and write them on the plan.

Be sure to measure where the fence will be ie. 100mm in from the edge of the deck (as seen in the example)

Calculate panels sizes

Divide each section into equal sized panels or full panels.

Panel sizes range from 100mm-1600mm

To get a general idea of how this can work for you, try our fencing calculator.

Or send your plan through and we can help.
