Our Stainless-Steel Post, Handrail & Glass Balustrade system is a popular and safe form of barrier protection.
The addition of our sturdy handrail often provides extra peace of mind, for more elevated locations.
On many occasions the addition of a handrail to your balustrade will be optional.
However, handrail provision may be mandatory for structural or safety purposes.
Our technical department are happy to go through such details with you and liaise with your Building Control.
** We offer many bespoke variations to help you create the style you want (Please see bespoke options below) **
Components of our Standard Stainless Steel Post, Handrail & Glass Balustrade
Circular stainless-steel posts with ‘D’ Shaped clamps attached to secure clear toughened safety glass panels, in place between.
The glass panels have polished edges and radiused/dubbed corners, for extra safety.
The posts are fixed in position with base plates at the bottom, elegantly disguised using circular cover roses.
This system can also be side fixed depending on your individual requirements subject to structural fixing requirements.
Our standard handrail is circular with a 42.4mm diameter.
There is a choice of fixing positions for the handrail, depending on your aesthetic preference.
For example: Above the glass, by being fixed on top the posts or going through the centre or upper section of the glass by being extended from the posts.
We manufacture our posts and handrail from Grade 316 ‘Marine Quality ’ Stainless Steel.
Chosen for its durability & excellent resistance to corrosion and rust. Ideal for outdoor use, even in windswept locations, exposed to the elements.
The Satin finish we use hides fingerprints and marks very well, requiring minimal cleaning & maintenance.
Curved terraces, patios or balconies can easily be accommodated.
ALL OF OUR SYSTEMS CONFORM TO BS6180: 2011 & ARE AVAILABLE AS BOTH SUPPLY & DELIVER ONLY OR WITH INSTALLATION
Requirements: For safety and suitability there must be a solid base to fix the balustrade to e.g. Concrete, Steel, Substantial Timbers. Our technical department will be glad to advise you on what should be in place.
If you are considering any type of balustrade, we highly recommend that you speak to us before making any alterations to the site (Such as decking or paving etc)
