stainless steel railing / glass panel / outdoor / for balconies
As with many projects encountered by the CANAL team all aesthetic and regulatory requirements had to be met on this roof top balustrade. It had to comply with BS6399; loadings for residential balustrade, adhere to the 100mm gap ruling and still be pleasing to the eye and relatively low maintenance; especially due to there being over 400m of balustrade in total.
CANAL laser cut all of the balusters and fixing plates, which were then galvanised: This process is not a recognised architectural finish, but satisfied the requirement for a good protective coating. Standard stainless steel glass clamps were bought and used to hold the 10mm toughened glass panels in place whilst a satin polished grade 316 stainless steel handrail was installed to run along the top.
