7. How can we determine number of metal spindles (balusters) needed?

For landing area, the balusters will be 4-1/2 inchs apart from center to centre. Please see formula below.

L=Total length of landing (inches)
Q=Number of Balusters required
L/4.5 -1= Q

Take an example of 50 inches long landing, 50/4.5-1=10 (Round off). Total of 10 balusters will be needed.

For tread (step), each tread is about 10 inches wide, you will need 2 balusters per tread.
