Where would you normally use timber base rails ?
As a base rail as part of the balustrade on a staircase.
What is it made out of ?
Plantation grown Radiata Pine that has been finger-jointed.
What are the important dimensions ?
Overall : 32mm Height x 65mm Width x Various Lengths
Rebate : 10mm Depth x 42mm Width on one side and 8mm Depth x 16mm Width on the other side.
Maximum length available is approximately 5.4 metres (subject to availability).
How should you finish it ?
As the finger-jointing is visible, we suggest that it should only be used for painting purposes.
If wanting to stain and lacquer, we suggest using the Vic Ash, American Oak or Meranti version of the same rail.
Speak to your local paint retailer for more info.
