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 office - Contact us

The first thing to check is the diameter (width) of the spindles you will be installing - for example an Artemis spiral staircase has spindles 21mm diameter.
 
For our calculations we are using a spindle width of 21mm and a max spindle spacing of 99mm

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.

The calculation in our example is;
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. 
 
If you divide the result, 990mm, by the number of spindles 10, PLUS 1 to give you the number of spaces in your run of balustrade, you get a spindle spacing of 90mm, which will comply with UK building regulations.

990mm divided by 11 = 90mm
 
As previously noted other spiral staircase brands will use different spindle sizes so don't forget to adjust the calculations for the brand of spiral staircase you are installing.
