BalusterPro


***Named one of the top 100 new home products for 2011 in This Old House magazine***

NOTE: The default maximum run length is set to 96 inches and is easily increased in the preferences (Preferences>Slider Values).

BalusterPro is a unique tool designed for carpenters and woodworkers, but also useful for do-it-yourselfers and homeowners.

Makes calculating spacing of handrail balusters a quick and easy task. Can be used for any job requiring equal spacing between boards or slats.

-Flat and Stair Runs
-Tapered Balusters
-Inch or Metric

To use, enter the run length and baluster width and then slide the 'Balusters Needed' slider until 'Spacing Between Balusters' reaches a desired value (such as meeting code requirements). The number of balusters needed is displayed above the slider.

What users are saying:

Punch in staircase and handrail dimensions, choose the configuration, and this app saves you the tedium of calculating baluster spacing. Hallelujah.

BalusterPro is an awesome app and can be used for a multitude of layout tasks, at your desk, on the job, in your car—wherever your phone goes, and it only costs a few bucks.

Love it Have been using this for over a year. Saves me quite a lot of time. Paid for itself the first rail I worked with it on. I use it for other things too: wainscoting, shelves, t&g. Anything you need to figure even spacing on really. Never had a problem. Remember you can change the slider values for a wider variety of applications. Have actually convinced a few others to purchase this as well.

Like it, want to love it. Needs to have pitched increased to 50 degrees, for it to be a great all purpose app. Railings on boats, and old homes don't conform to any building codes.

Real Time Saver This is a great app for quickly figuring out how many balusters needed in a run and exactly how much to space them for optimal use. It takes a little time to get to know all of the controls, but put in the time, and it will reward you in savings.
