L.J. Smith® allows homeowners to change the look of their boring interior stairways with the new easy-to-install IronPro™ system that allows even the least-skilled do-it-yourselfer to transform a staircase with decorative iron balusters. The IronPro system allows homeowners to keep existing wooden handrails and newels, and simply swap out the wooden balusters for designer iron balusters. After older wooden balusters are carefully removed, IronPro pivoting fasteners are attached to the handrail. Iron balusters are then inserted, pivoted, and swung into the vertical position. Alignment is completed and screws are tightened to secure the baluster.
Two different IronPro kits are available from L.J. Smith, both featuring products in satin black. For an open tread stairway, the IronPro Level Kit includes a ball adaptor, round and rectangular sockets, a base collar, a threaded disk, and centering plugs. For a kneewall stairway, the IronPro Kneewall Kit includes a ball adaptor, threaded ball adaptor, round and rectangular sockets, and centering plugs. One IronPro kit is needed for each baluster replacement in a stairway system. L.J. Smith offers 35 different 1/2” solid and hollow iron baluster styles as replacement options when using the IronPro kit.
L.J. Smith products, including wooden and ornamental iron balusters, stainless steel cable and tube infills, metal panels, newel posts, hand rails, and accessories, are all defined by their unique designs, uncompromised durability, and good looks.
