balustrade

Here is my best explanation:

'railing' is the definition.
(balustrade is a kind of railing)

'adults are moved behind black' is the wordplay.
'moved' indicates anagramming the letters.
'behind' says to put letters next to each other.
'black' becomes 'b' (as in pencil classifications).
'adults'+'are'='adultsare'
'adultsare' with letters rearranged gives 'alustrade'.
'alustrade' put after 'b' is 'BALUSTRADE'.
