A handy summary of these guidelines can be found in the below PDF documents.Building Code of Australia - Balustrade regulations summary Australian Standard 1288 - Summary handbook
Semi-framed balustrade benefits
The first obvious benefit of the Semi-framed Balustrade is the cost. They are a cheaper option because they use aluminium in the balustrade posts and handrails.
The frameless fixings are all stainless steel which raises their cost so aluminium is an economical choice for those so inclined. Our Semi-framed Balustrades are made from 10mm toughened, A-grade, safety glass.
Frameless glass balustrades info
Frameless Balustrades are our most popular and they offers a clear view of the surrounding environment. No posts are there to obscure the view and a top rail to your taste. It is a requirement by law that a top rail is fitted to balustrades where there is a drop of 1 meter or more from the finished floor surface unless a suitable engineering solution is provided.
The top rail provides a barrier to help prevent someone from falling in the event of a glass breakage. Our Frameless Balustrades are made from 12mm toughened, A-grade, safety glass.
The benefit of our Frameless, toughened laminate Balustrades is that they are engineered such that in the event of glass breakage, the glass stays in one piece offering a barrier to help prevent someone from falling.
In this way, we can provide Fully Frameless Balustrades with no top rail at any height and still be compliant with all Australian Regulations. Our Frameless, toughened laminate Balustrades are made from high-quality 15mm toughened, A grade, safety glass.
Installation process & guidelines
From receipt of deposit we start cutting and processing the glass panels for your balustrade. You can expect the installation of your new balustrade to take place within two to three weeks of receiving the deposit. Depending upon the size of your balustrade, installation may typically take between one and four days to complete.
Notes on Installation and things to think about:
- It is important that all finished floor levels have been achieved before we come out to check measure glass.
- Make certain that you raise any installation issues with us early in the piece. Ie, is there a detail or design on site that is still in discussion that may change? Location of lights, skimmer boxes?
Choices: What fixing style are you after? Round or square spigots? 38mm or 50mm diameter glass anchors? Channel fixed? Satin Stainless Steel or Polished Stainless Steel finish? Glass type? Clear, frost, or …? Style of Handrail if required? Is your gate pivoting left or right handed? Given that the gate must swing away from the pool is there anything in the way?
Note: Once the glass has been toughened no further processing is possible so everything needs to be clear from the start.
