Pre-engineered, modular glass and stainless steel, post-free balustrade system with fixing bosses, suitable for interior and exterior applications.

Features and benefits:

  • Comprised of bosses with 38 mm top rails in either brushed stainless steel, or a selection of hardwoods that can be a natural finish or stained to match other interior wood finishes.
  • Hidden mechanical connections throughout minimize on-site assembly, requiring no welding or gluing and provide security after installation.
  • Bends or mitred joints are factory prepared to tight tolerances ensuring quality of fit and finish.
  • Manufactured from 1.4301 (304) grade stainless steel for internal use. 1.4404 (316L) grade stainless steel is required for external use.
  • Unobtrusive 'floating glass' appearance; stainless steel bosses replace traditional posts and are paired with a handrail/ cap rail to provide a minimalist appearance.
  • Curved rails and other custom designs can be accommodated - consult manufacturer for details.
  • Environmentally friendly system.
  • Designed, engineered and manufactured in accordance with BS 6180, BS 6399 and BS 8300.
