- Base Shoes
Iron balusters typically use base shoes to make installation easier and to give a more finished look to your stair railing system. Since you drill holes into the step/cap and up into your handrail, you can be left with an undesirable damage, huge holes or gaps. Iron baluster shoes are used to ensure the top and bottom installation holes drilled to insert the balusters are completely covered up.
Our iron baluster shoes provide a smooth & elegant transition from the handrail, tread and balcony to the wrought iron baluster. They are typically installed on the bottom of the baluster, but sometimes on both top and bottom. Base shoes are available in flat and angled so that they can be mounted at either the top or the bottom of the iron baluster. All of our iron baluster base shoes are powder coated with a highly durable finish and come with a set screw used to secure the base shoe to the iron baluster. In order to make the installation simpler, faster and to reduce the chance of slipping we recommed you to glue shoes down with adhesive or epoxy. This method will save you lots of time, no tools are required and shoe alignment will be easier.
