A balustrade acts as a handrail or horizontal support structure. Frameless glass was originally designed for pool fencing but with the crisp clean lines of frameless fencing combined with the fact that frameless glass balustrade in no way impedes your outlook or view, it wasn’t long before architects and house designers were requesting frameless glass balustrade for their new balconies to replace the traditional framed glass or aluminium balustrade.
Most of the components used in frameless glass pool fencing can be used in frameless glass balustrade, the spigots are universal and so is the 12mm glass. While the minimum height for glass balustrade, in fact, any type of balustrade is only 1 metre, many people opt to use 1200 high 12mm pool fencing glass on their balustrade because when you are sitting down on the balcony, the handrail is above eye level giving you a clearer view than when the glass is at 1 metre high with the handrail at eye level impeding your view. Frameless glass balustrade is now very popular as a balustrade and widely used in modern home designs.
Our frameless glass balustrade meets and exceeds all requirements under AS1170 provided it has a continuous handrail, there are a number of different options available including a 50.8mm polished one way slotted tube that is siliconed to the top of the glass panels, 50x10mm RHS side mounted to the glass panels using small stainless steel standoff brackets, there is also available a polished stainless steel handrail bracket that has a round or flat saddle, this bracket is also side mounted to the glass.
There are many different fixing methods for frameless glass balustrade depending on what surface is available but the most popular and cost effective one is to use round or square stainless steel spigots with 12mm clear toughened glass, we also use face mounted 50mm diameter stainless steel standoff brackets. All our glass is manufactured to AS2208.
