If the wall/ceiling is parallel to the knee wall, then placing a top and bottom cap of wood on each will allow you to extend substantial metal balusters in. You probably won't find skinny ones that will work as they will bend too easily. Not sure if there is a published guide.

There are building code guidelines concerning distance between the balusters. Will they all extend to the ceiling or will you have a hand rail? Newel post at the bottom? Wall plate for hand rail (?) at the top? Will there be a hand rail against the wall?
