Balusters are metal railings that are normally built into a storied building’s balconies. They can also be applied as railings common to the mall concept, as well as staircase bannisters that support at least several flights of stairs, usually from a lobby area to about the first floor of a complex development. This could be a public service administration building, a private hospital, an office and apartment complex, and certainly a five-star hotel.
The term belly balusters initially elicits a little curiosity. But upon closer inspection, you see why it is being called thus. You notice soon enough how the single belly baluster or balcony railing is shaped and constructed. And yes, that is quite correct; it is shaped in the form of a protruding belly. It looks almost like the shape of a rather portly gentleman’s ample stomach. Interestingly enough, this shape has been kindled for more than aesthetic purposes.
Although it has to be said that on most occasions, no matter how austere or formidable the construction may have appeared to the naked eye otherwise, it does look rather impressive, if not, quite lovely. It all depends on the artist’s work and how he has managed to compliment these fashionable railings to suit the rest of the building’s styling and construction. You are able to lean on the baluster and marvel at the view before you.
Because there is no fear of you tumbling over and falling down. The belly balusters are generally constructed from the strongest steel possible. These are steel strips that would usually be destined for much heavier industries. Apart from the railings’ strength, there is little chance of it being corroded. Its construction gives the property owner a long lifespan. It qualifies as a strong and sustainable construction.
