Iron Balusters and Newels
- It is not recommended to mix and match iron products from different suppliers. The finishes will usually not match. Each supplier uses different mixes, colors and equipment.
- It is not recommended to mix and match hollow and solid iron products. Hollow iron products are usually aluminum or other smoother metals and solid products will be some form of solid iron. The textures will be noticeably different. Hollow will be smoother, while the solid will show slight man-made artifacts.
- Hollow Balusters Use Aluminum Shoes
- Solid Balusters Use Iron Shoes
