Balustrade system capable of using varying glass thicknesses from 19–31.52 mm toughened and laminated glass. Top-fixed, in either standard top-mounted or 'F' profile options. Fascia-mounted in either standard fascia-mounted profile or 'Y' Channel. (Hole centres dependent on structure and required loading performance).

Handrails are available in related stainless steel or wood which can sit directly on the top of the glass panels using our rubber insert. A number of diameters and profiles are available in different grades. The system is also available with off-set handrails which are fixed through holes in the glass.

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

Features and benefits:

  • Able to cope with line loads in excess of 5 kN.
  • Complies with worldwide safety and Building Regulations.
  • Aluminium cladding with a stainless steel effect.
  • Uses the Safety Wedge system for easy glass installation.
  • Integrated water drainage.
  • Four different base shoes (two for top-mount and two for fascia-mount) available, which are installed directly onto concrete, without the need for a steel construction.
  • Aluminium base channel for fixing glass (2500 mm long), with various rubber glazing seal options for fixed or adjustable applications.
  • Choice of handrails, including wooden (Beech, Oak lacquered, Beech, P11 stained and lacquered), square, rectangular, circular or elliptical in stainless steel grades 1.4301 (304) or 1.4401 (316), with options for satin or mirror polished surface finish.
  • Glass infill available in different thicknesses, varying from 19–31.52 mm. All glass is bespoke to each specific project.
  • Design criteria 1.5 to 3 kN/m, based on specific test situations.

Applications:

Suitable for extremely heavy indoor or outdoor use for stairs and balustrades. For large public spaces with demanding safety requirements, such as airports, stadiums and shopping centres.
