Hi All, I would be happy to hear some suggestions how to build a new railing on a balcony that is at the level of about 400 mm of the ground. The floor has tiles and there are 4 supporting poles. The trick is that I want to design the simplest and most efficient way so the person who installs it to spent the least time for the installation. I have already gathered 1. vertical wooden planks and horizontal bars that support the planks 90 cm to about 7 cm in width and the two horizontal bars about 1.5 m x 25cm upper and lower. I think that this is one way, however, to place the planks between the bars, takes a lot of work and it is time-consuming. The 2. way is to use double horizontal wood bars 1.5 m x 15 cm place 4 one above another with about 7 cm space between them, Connectors may be vertical metal connectors and large screws/hexadecimal bolts. I will be covering them with paint later. Please, can you have some suggestions regarding this project?

My slack way of doing it is to use my phone then upload to facebook and link from there.
As Brad has suggested, it would be great if you could share a photo or two. Just click on the Insert/edit image button above. I'll pop a screenshot below so you can see what I mean.
