Balusters and balustrades made of natural stone for all ages epitomized the exquisite taste and prosperity of the customer, and, thanks to their characteristics, acted as guarantors of centuries-old operation without repair and restoration works, even in our complex climate.
The word "baluster" went from the ancient Greek "balaustion" Βαλαύστιον, which in translation meant "garnet flower", it is the voluminous form of its bud that resembles a classical balustrade. The very balustrade is a small decorated pillar or pillar. It can be mounted in a special base - the lower beam (or located directly on the step, if used in the enclosure of the staircase) and covered with a handrail or handrails that hold together all the figured supports. These fixed balusters form a balustrade. For the stability of construction and aesthetic diversity through certain, as a rule, the same distance the string of balusters is interrupted by columns or curbstones. They, in turn, consist of a base, body of a curbstone and a lid, and together with the lower beam, balusters and handrails form a single and solid construction. All this can be seen in the picture on the left.
To the balustrade of natural stone stood vertically, did not bend, and served for centuries, it requires a specially prepared foundation, or, in professional terms, the foundation, since the whole structure is quite massive and weighs a lot. With the standards for the design of fences can be found below, here I would like to draw attention to the fact that the height of the balusters directly depends on the location of the balustrade and varies on average from 65 to 90 cm.

According to the requirements of GOST 25772-83 "Enclosures of stairs, balconies and roofs of steel." For standard street steps of more than three, a fence is required. This GOST requires the designer to designate the dimensions of the fences. Standard is the height of the enclosures of the internal staircases at the level of 90 cm, for balconies - 100 cm, for street barriers - 120 cm. These heights are not accidental. They were calculated on the basis of average data on human growth, they also take into account the requirements of safety and ergonomics, and therefore are considered optimal in most cases.
If there are children in the house, it is necessary to additionally install the handrail taking into account their growth, usually its height is 50 -70 cm. The distance between the support posts should not exceed 107 mm by standards, so that a ball-shaped object of this diameter can not be pushed through the balusters. Usually in children's institutions the width between balusters does not exceed 10 cm, and in other public places 12 cm.
More detailed information on the design of the height of fences can be found in JV 118.13330.2012 * Public buildings and structures, JV 55.13330.2016 "Residential buildings single-family houses", etc.
