Baluster Spacing

I'm installing iron balusters in a loft area and I need to know, is there a distance from the baluster to the edge of the bullnose of the hardwood?

The only spacing I know of is 4" between balusters.

I'm not sure exactly what you are asking, but if you are referring to the opening between a required guard and the tread/riser of a stair, see fig 38 here: http://www.stairways.org/pdf/2006%20...C%20SCREEN.pdf

I don't know of a specific spacing from the nosing. The key for determining the appropriate spacing is:

        For more info on stair geometry and baluster arrangements see:
