Balustrades and handrails that bring your staircase design to life
Bespoke balustrade solutions for residential and commercial projects
Found lining many staircases, decks and terraces, a balustrade is, in its simplest form, a row of small columns topped by a handrail. Balustrades can be made from a variety of materials (like steel, aluminium, stainless steel) in a range of styles for both decorative and practical purposes. While they perform a very obvious function they also present a great opportunity to become the feature of any room or space they occupy.
Our speciality is creating unique, stylish and functional balustrades and barriers for apartment blocks, carparks and commercial buildings, whether you are renovating existing structures or planning something new.
In New Zealand, the council requires balustrades to pass a building code of compliance if the fall from height is over 1 metre high. Subsequently, we work alongside our clients to ensure they meet the building code whether they are retrofitting existing residential balustrade or wishing to renovate one that is non-code compliant to meet current legislation. At SRS Group, we offer a variety of solutions to meet your budget and expectations.
We’ve installed thousands of balustrades across Auckland and NZ with a few examples from previous projects below.
We excel at creating staircase designs that impress and produce a number of balustrade types:
- Commercial balustrade systems
- Vertical wire infill balustrades
- Mesh infill balustrades
- Custom stainless or galvanised steel balustrades
- Timber balustrades with wire infill
SRS Group offers custom-designed balustrade fabrication in a wide range of materials. From tough, hard-wearing, low maintenance galvanised steel (popular for large commercial projects) through to sophisticated and sleek stainless steel, popular for high spec, architecturally-designed productions.
We have also created timber balustrades and decking by working in partnership with a local, experienced builder.
For the ultimate effect, they can even be powder coated for a coloured finish with LED lighting for added impact.
When you are in the initial phases or your staircase design, speak to us first to discuss how we can bring your stairway areas to life. This can include the use of foliage or hanging installations from above using our cables and rods.

Do you have an existing handrail, but need a solution for an infill to complete your staircase? We are experiencing exponential demand for designs that complement unique modern architecture. At SRS Group we work predominantly with two types of balustrade infills – tensile mesh and wire – which are both created from 316 marine grade stainless steel and have seen climbing demand due to the cost-effective, attractive and low maintenance nature of the material.
Wire infills use cables that offers a contemporary look that is view-friendly and maintenance free. Our tensile mesh lends itself to a number of environments, but is particularly striking where it is used to complement an overall industrial design theme. Tensile mesh can take a project to the next level with its unique ability to be created in almost any colour imaginable.
The right materials for the job.
In order to guarantee the strength of every job we complete, we're pretty selective when it comes to the right materials. That's why we prefer to use materials like 316 Marine Grade Stainless Steel for wire infilled balustrades on both residential and commercial projects. Whether the project is at sea, at home, or at the office, 316 provides a long lasting, low maintenance, non-corrosive solution, which works for everyone - people, animals and plants alike!
