Basket balusters, also known as “bird cage” balusters, are available in a number of design configurations; including narrow, wide, long, short, and round variations. Most styles available in single and double design.

Our basket balusters are available in round or square rods. Custom design options are available.



Our basket balusters come in both round material and square material.  We offer sizes from 1/2” up to 1” (for our posts).  Each style baluster comes with a variety of choice of material thickness and length. Customers can cut all products down to meet the needs of their project.

Custom sizes are available.



Basket balusters are available in both iron/steel and aluminum. Available options include:

  • smooth solid basket balusters (round or square)
  • smooth hollow basket balusters (round or square)
  • hammered edge baluster (which is hammered on the corners only)
  • twisted square basket baluster (nice twist details above and underneath the basket)

We pride ourselves on the quality of our products, with the majority of our balusters made in house.
