The Ashley Baluster is an elegant addition to the 5" Balustrade System. It includes minimal contours and moulding details that add balance to the design. The baluster also includes square ends and an innovative urethane construction. The Ashley Balustrade System is a classic exterior accent for modern times. The Ashley Baluster offers the traditional detail of a turned wood spindle, but it is molded in high-density polyurethane foam, a material that offers durability and remains virtually maintenance-free. This urethane baluster is lightweight but strong, and has the feel of pine.
