Pre-engineered, modular stainless steel post balustrade system suitable for interior and exterior applications.

Features and benefits:

  • Comprised of elliptical 16 by 57 mm (d x w) posts with 38 or 51 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 1.4307 (304L) grade stainless steel for internal use. 1.4404 (316L) grade stainless steel is required for external use.
  • Components are interchangeable with all HDI systems.
  • Top rails and infill options are available offset to the side of posts.
  • Supports are based on a single elliptical profile used throughout the system from posts to wall mount supports, providing a coordinated and minimalist design.
  • Designed, engineered and manufactured in accordance with BS 6180, BS 6399 and BS 8300.
