A point fixed balustrade is a system that uses stainless steel pins bolted through pre cut holes in the frameless glass panels. The glass is extended below ground or decking level before being fixed in place by the bolts. One of the bigger advantages of using this system is that the pins can be fixed into many different kinds of material. Fixings come in round disc or square profiles with polished or satin finishes.
Channel Balustrades and Pool Fences are simple and effective method with clear lines with specifications that allow for relatively long panels of glass to be used. A channel balustrade can be face fixed or downfixed and is a great option for capturing the frameless look of glass whilst keeping costs down. The channel can be powdercoated to suit the colour of your deck.
A mini post system uses small unobtrustive stainless steel posts sometimes known as spigot's to support the glass panels and provide a look combining a minimalistic, classic combination of stainless steel with frameless glass.There are a couple of different styles of mini posts that Haynes Glass can supply depending on your personal preference. Ask us about the options available.
Full Height Posts
A Haynes full height aluminium post system creates a more traditional looking balustrade that incorporates full height posts and clamps used to support glass panels. This can be well suited to environments where a top rail is also required, such as balconies and stairways. Aluminium post balustrades are available in various colours and finishes and are a stylish, yet cost effective balustrading method.
Initially you must get a drawing done specifying for your deck specifying types of fixings and materials used (including the brands) so a permit (PS1) can be issued. The second step would be to have a consultant to visit the site and measure up for a quote. On acceptance of the quote we fabricate the glass to size and return at a later date to install. A certificate of compliance (PS3) will be issued on completion. We can aid you with all of these technical details throughout the process.
From measure to installation, the process generally takes approximately 15 working days depending on the size.
The balustrading systems we sell at Haynes are channel, full height post, point fixed disc and mini posts. All can be made with custom size panels however there is a length limit depending on the type of system, the positioning and the wind load.
Most balustrades you are likely to see around are in 12mm Clear Safety Glass, but there are options. We also offer balustrades in tinted, frosted and ultra clear. All different glass types comply with the NZ building codes.
Our balustrades are custom made to precise sizes and the various systems can work out quite different in their cost, so we price them on a job by job basis. Contact us with your ideas, or arrange a free consultation for an accurate quote.
