Fitting decking balustrades and handrails are a great way to add finishing touches to your decking, and we have a great range to match or contrast with your composite decking.

We have decking balustrades and handrails to suit all tastes. If your style is modern, you’ll love our glass balustrade system – a minimal design of glass and stainless steel that looks great everywhere from seaside homes (it gives great infinity views) to modern urban apartments. We also have a cable rail system that suits modern styles.

For more traditional decking balustrades and handrails, check out our ornamental handrail (available in cedar, grey or redwood) and our radiance rail, that comes in black or white.

And if you’re not sure which decking balustrades and handrails to go for, check out the galleries on each product’s web page for inspiration.

A lot of people planning their garden makeovers are worried about how to install decking. A quick search on various DIY forums offer conflicting advice. “It’s easy!” say some. “It’s a nightmare!” say others.

They’re usually talking about how to install decking that comes from a DIY superstore – your bog-standard, softwood decking - the installation of which can involve a lot of wasted timber, and whilst it will look good in the short term, a softwood deck will soon succumb to the elements and become covered in algae and slippery.  So, why not rediscover decking  and take a look at composite decking, which is a different product altogether. You’ll get the clean lines and neat finish of traditional decking, with the look of real wood, but without the fiddly installation, and maintenance .

Our customers who are enquiring about how to install decking are often surprised by how easy TimberTech is to fit.  As our decking boards are made from wood composite – a blend of recycled wood and polymer – there are no knots, so you can use every single bit of them. It’s easier to fit than traditional decking using standard tools, and is available with a grooved edge and a hidden fastener system called CONCEALoc® for a quicker, easier, visible fixing-free finish. It’s splinter-free too, so you won’t have get the tweezers on your hands when you’ve finished.  

On our website, we’ve even got a complete guide on how to install decking, as well as an FAQ section with answers to all of your installation questions.

Better still, let our expert team do the work for you. With a bespoke design and fitting service, and a virtually no-maintenance deck, all you need to do is put something in the fridge to chill, then kick back, relax and enjoy your new deck.
