How to calculate spiral staircase balustrading
In the UK most spiral
staircase kits use vertical spindles in their
guard rail designs. It is important to ensure you use the correct
spacings between spindles so that the railing can be used safely. The
building regulations state that there should not be a gap greater than
100mm between spindles. To make calculating the number of spindles
straightforward, and to comply with the regulations, we use a gap of
99mm maximum for our examples below. If you need further assistance in
calculating your balustrade then please email us or call our sales

1. Firstly, measure the length of the gap that you wish to fill with your guard rail or balustrade.
2. Next, deduct 99mm from your total measurement. Then divide the
result by the width of a spindle plus the maximum spacing allowed.
For example, if your balustrade needs to be 1200mm long, and spindle spacing is a maximum 99mm, and spindle width is 21mm, the formula would be (1200 - 99) divided by 120mm (which is the 21mm diameter spindle plus 99mm spacing) = 9.2 spindles. This is then rounded up to the next whole number, 10. So in summary you need 10 Artemis spindles to fill a balustrade length of 1200mm.
3. To give the best aesthetic results you should space the spindles equally in the run of balustrade - they don't need to have the same spacing as on the spiral staircase, by the way. Simply multiply the width of each spindle by the number of spindles in the run, in our example this is 10 no. Subtract the result from the total length of the run of balustrade.
10 x 21mm diameter = 210mm, where 10 is the number of spindles and 21mm the diameter of each spindle
1200mm minus 210mm = 990mm, the total space left.
990mm divided by 11 = 90mm
