Calculate the required spacing between balusters on flat runs or spacing on fences with ease using Chippy Tools.
Calculating the correct balusters/spindle spacing is complex and causes much confusion. Incorrectly calculating the correct spacing can lead to building regulations not being met and balusters looking athletically wrong. The way to calculate baluster spacing differs depending on the type of run, with flat run baluster spacing requiring different calculations to stair run baluster spacing.
To calculate the required baluster spacing on a flat run Chippy Tools will require the run length, the baluster width and the maximum allowable baluster spacing. From this information, Chippy Tools will calculate the minimum number of balusters required to ensure that the spacing between balusters does not exceed the maximum allowable spacing. While Chippy Tools has calculated the minimum number of balusters required it is possible to add additional balusters, thus increasing the number of spaces in the railing. Once the number of balusters has been calculated or changed Chippy Tools will automatically calculate the spacing between balusters, the spacing on centres and the leading and centre measurements for each of the balusters.
