Port Helena Baluster
Royal Corinthian manufactures balusters from polyurethane, fiberglass, and synthetic stone. We only offer composite material made in America that will last for generations: Wood rots, concrete crumbles, aluminum rusts, and vinyl is flimsy and has a cheap appearance. We are the only manufacturer in America that manufactures the same spindle styles from 3 different materials. This allows for someone to mix and match our products on a single residence or commercial project. For example, our synthetic stone balusters can be used on a front porch where they are prominent and polyurethane balusters of the same style can be used on the rooftop or balconies where weight is of concern. It is important to note however that we are able to offer our fiberglass and synthetic stone balusters in half of the listed weight by using a lightweight filler. This results in balusters that have the same wall thickness but are half of the normal weight. We offer hundreds of standard spindle profiles and make custom balusters on a monthly basis for historic restorations or simply to meet a customer’s preference. Our in-house mold making department allows for custom products to be priced very close to standard products so rest assured that a custom baluster won’t break the bank. In addition to our standard and custom abilities, we are also able to decrease or increase the plinth height (top and bottom) of any baluster that we offer.
Polyurethane baluster weights will be significantly less than the weights on the charts. Synthetic Stone and Fiberglass balusters can be made in half of the posted weight. Stair balusters, which can be used as regular balusters, are essentially regular balusters with extended plinths to allow for cutting to pitch. Royal Corinthian can cast each stair baluster to pitch which will significantly reduce installation costs. All balusters can be made shorter or taller to achieve height requirements as long as the plinth heights allow for it. Custom balusters or historic replications are our specialty. All weights and dimensions are approximate and similar items will vary slightly in weight and size due to the nature of the product.
