Balustrading and Parapet Screening

Balustrading and Parapet Screening
A coping supported by turned balusters or pierced panelling can be used to create elegant perimeters, balconies and terraces. At McMillan & Holder we turn, mason, supply and install balustrade and pierced screening for use in period/ neoclassical architectural projects. We offer the best standards of craftsmanship with the ability to provide prices in natural stone comparable with concrete cast competitors.
A balustrade is a row of small columns topped by a rail, and interestingly the term is derived from the form’s vertical vase-like posts, which are called balusters. The term was coined in 17th century Italy for the item’s resemblance to blossoming pomegranate flowers (which are ‘balaustra’ in Italian).
