Deck - Rail

The railing for the deck is a safety feature which restrains the individuals standing high above the ground level. As we can see, the balusters or small vertical rails are positioned close together to provide a screen that prevents smaller body parts from protruding through the railing.

The balusters are attached at the top to a 1 by 6 board and a smaller board at the bottom. The railing is attached to the brick wall on one side as shown and to a newel on the other end. A 1 by 4 covers the top of this section that allows for comfortable leaning.
