Composite handrailing

Comfortable, safe & attractive balustrading

Dura Balustrade shown here in Teak.

Composite handrailings are a low maintenance alternative to timber

Dura Balustrading consists of a range of low maintenance composite timber balustrading products that provide a comfortable, safe and attractive low-level handrail for domestic and commercial applications. Although it has the appearance of traditional timber, the composite material will not warp, splinter or rot like natural wood and does not require painting or staining, making it a great choice for your low-level handrailing requirements.

Extremely strong and long-lasting, it will stand the test of time even when exposed to challenging environments. Thanks to its UV colour stable and mould resistant properties, Dura Balustrading doesn’t fade or deteriorate like wooden alternatives. All you need to do to keep it looking its best is to spray it with a hosepipe to remove any debris before washing it with a soft bristled brush. You can also pressure wash it as you see necessary.

Featuring a unique concealed fixing system, Dura Balustrading reflects the safe and aesthetically pleasing credentials of our complementary decking boards. With no exposed nails or screws to potentially cause an injury, and a smooth appearance, our handrailings make the perfect addition to your Dura Deck composite decking boards. The balustrading can be supplied pre-cut and pre-drilled in either Teak or Charcoal colours, allowing for rapid installation onto a range of substrates including concrete, wood and steel, even if you don’t have extensive woodworking experience.

With our composite handrailings, you can be sure that you are making an investment for the future. Dura Balustrading has a 10-year warranty and will add character to your outdoor space for years to come. Combining the beautiful natural look of timber with the durability of a plastic composite, Dura Balustrading provides the best of both worlds.

The Dura Balustrading product range

With Dura Balustrading, there are two stylish colours to choose from – Charcoal or Teak. Our handrailings come in three sizes, Type 1000 (1230mm x 1000mm with a minimum order quantity of 2 units), Type 1200 (1230mm x 1200mm with a minimum order quantity of 3 units) and Type 1500 (1230mm x 1500mm with a minimum order quantity of 2 units). Other sizes are available by special order, subject to minimum order quantities. They have consistent gapping, creating a professional, uniform appearance to enhance your decking area. Designed to complement the Dura Deck range, our handrailings allow you to complete the landscaping of your garden decking area and make a stunning outdoor sanctuary.

In both commercial and domestic settings, our composite handrailings have a wide variety of applications. Dura Balustrading can function as both a decorative and low level handrail and is a great option if you wish to define the edges of your composite decking. Many of our customers choose to install our handrailings as part of low-level terraces and ornamental gardens, creating a practical and attractive feature.

Dura Balustrading offers an eco-friendly finish to any garden or commercial decking area. Manufactured using a blend of up to 87% recycled hardwood and plastics, our composite timber balustrading can also be specified as 100% FSC® certified.
