You can buy a ballet barre from us. If you want to put it by a window or a mirror, the best way is to have it fixed to the floor.?
If the wall is made of plasterboard, choose a bar that can be fixed to the floor and the wall. If you have a brick or concrete wall, you need a barre that fastens only to the wall.
The barres can have one or two handrails. The lower handrail is made for children, usually it is fixed 75 cm from the floor. The top one is for adults, 110 cm from the floor. These are all stationary barres. If there is no suitable wall, you can use a portable barre with adjustable height and handrails made of wood or metal. Fitness clubs often use portable bars, especially when there are many participants, and not enough space available at the wall. Moreover, they can be moved to the side to create room for other activities.
