A balustrade for the side of the spiral staircase. Without this balustrade it was not possible to install a stair gate, so that my daughter cannot climb up.

Custom balustrade

The tricky part was that the balustrade could not be fixed to the wall (there is a shaft for a drain pipe, so I couldn't screw it to that, because then I would risk leakage). The floor was also not optimal for securing a balustrade. The side of the stairs itself was also not very suitable, because then I would create a large lever, which would be at the expense of sturdiness (a one meter high stair gate, only attaching to the bottom 4 cm gives a lever of 1: 25). That is why I ordered 3 blocks of wood from One to fill the triangle at the bottom of the side of the stairs. One to screw against both the triangle and the side of the stairs (where I made recesses for the steps, because they protruded further). One to serve as the underside of the balustrade. I used quite a few screws of 10-14cm long and 8mm thick. The result is a very strong balustrade, which is only attached to the staircase itself, not to the floor or wall. It may look a bit unorthodox, but now I can finally attach a stair gate to the stairs, so that my 1-year-old daughter does not climb the stairs.
