Here’s how to install Horizontal Tube Balustrades

What you’ll need:

  • Marker
  • Tape measure
  • Drill
  • Drill bit
  • Post level
  • Pliers
  • Spanner


Step 1:

Measure exactly where you’d like to install your balustrades, and use the marker to indicate where to drill the holes.

Step 2:

Using the drill and drill bit, drill distinctive holes into the floor and fill them with Epoxy.

Step 3:

Lower the vertical balustrade posts into the holes and fasten the horizontal tubes, using the spanner, with the bolts provided. Using the post level, ensure your balustrades are even before continuing with the rest of the horizontal tubes
