Find the right outdoor balustrade system for your garden

If you have an elevated deck or a patio, a Peak balustrade system can make your outdoor space look complete and safe. Whether it’s made from toughened glass panels or aluminium balusters, there’s a Peak balustrade system that’s suited to your backyard. Darren, the manager of Peak Balustrades, takes us through the benefits of their modular railing system and provides a few helpful tips.

Customisable system to suit your backyard

The Peak balustrade system has been designed with D.I.Yers in mind. It’s easily customisable because it’s modular, so you can get the exact look that you want for your outdoors.

Sectional glass panels are a great way to show off a beautiful garden or maintain the scenic view from your patio. Decorative handrail spacers can stylishly fit into your surrounds. Whereas wide balustrades can give you the safety and support you need in your backyard.

Installation in three easy steps

You’d be surprised how easy it is to install Peak aluminium balustrades yourself. Start by jumping online to use the layout planner. This will help you to measure and draw out your space and how much balustrade you’ll need to install.

Next, you will need to select the components that your balustrade will be made from. This also includes posts, hand and base rails, balusters and spacers, glass panels, gates, connectors and brackets.

Then all you need to do is download the installation guide and you’re ready to get started. With a few simple tools, materials and some supplied fixings, you’re ready to start installing.

Durability that doesn’t compromise on style

Peak balustrades aren’t susceptible to rot or rust like wooden or steel balustrades. They’ll also avoid warping and decaying, and can survive salt air and the harshest of outside weather conditions. This means that whichever model you install, it will look great for years to come. 

Another good tip is that they won’t need to be sanded or stained, which will save you hours of maintenance each year.

Peak balustrades are backed by a 20-year limited warranty, so you can be sure that their high-quality powder coated aluminium finish is built to last. They also comply with relevant Australian and New Zealand standards and are code compliant.
