The building regulations specify that the space between spindles, must not be greater than 99 mm. This means that 100 mm sphere must not pass through the spindles at any point. For example, to cover yourself the spindles are set at 90 mm – which is well within the legal requirements. In calculating how many spindles you need, a good guide is 2 spindles per step and one spindle where there is a newel post on the step. The spindles are held in place using the slips provided with the handrail and base rail. These slips are generally best glued and pinned in place. The slips are similar material as the handrail and baserail and should be cut to your desired measurement which again must not exceed 99mm.
