Balustrade system capable of using varying glass thicknesses, from 8–13.52 mm toughened and laminated glass.

Slender base fixing with structural support, given from either a top mount post or fascia mount solution. Aluminium cap rail connects to the head of the balustrade. Size: 33 x 39 mm or 65 x 40 mm.

The system has been designed to complement the existing range of Q-railing's high quality architectural fittings.

Features and benefits:

  • Aluminium base channel for fixing glass (2500 or 5000 mm long) with various rubber glazing seals for varying glass thicknesses.
  • Choice of handrail profiles.
  • MOD 0749 adapter has a two-way fixing for straightening glass panels on site.
  • Glass infill available in different thicknesses, varying from 8–13.52 mm. All glass is bespoke to each specific project.
  • Design criteria 0.36, 0.74 and 1.5 kN/m.

Applications:

Suitable for light to medium indoor and outdoor use for stairs and balustrades. Can be installed as a full glass balustrade, or alternatively as a baluster railing. With the larger of the two cap rails, it is possible to create a baluster-free glass balustrade spanning up to 3 m. If a longer balustrade is required, simply add the slender balusters.
