Why safeguard your banisters and balustrades?

Wide and horizontal bars on banisters and balustrades pose a likely threat to infants and toddlers as they can easily fit through the gaps and fall or become wedged and trapped or even climb as they get older. As a rule of thumb, rails should be no further apart than 8,5 cm.

An effective baby proofing solution to this problem is installing Polycarbonate Panels.

Areas need to be measured properly; ideally Polycarbonate should not be cut on site if you don’t have the proper tools and expertise;

Polycarbonate for Banisters & Balustrades Installation Method:

  • Do not remove the protective film until all the holes have been drilled.
  • Place the Polycarbonate Panel against the Balustrade and use a permanent marker to mark where the holes should be drilled to secure to poles on Balustrade. Equal distances apart and from the side. For Panels under 1.2 meters, 3 holes going down on either side is perfect. For Panels longer than 1.2m 3 holes going down in the centre of the panel are required.
  • Use a 5,5mm steel drill bit and drill onto a breadboard on the floor.
  • To install you use long (300mm) cable ties (White or black) And bonded washers from Builders for support. Pic below.
  • Thread the cable tie through the Bonded Washer (as per pic below) then through the Polycarb; around the Balustrade pole and back through the same hole. Tighten the cable tie.
