mini post pool fence

Modern, sleek and frameless. Made tough and assembled to last

Mini-posts are a minimal profile fixing method for frameless style glass fencing in either interior or outdoor environments. With a range of fixing options, including surface mounted or side fixed. Mini posts raise the glass above the ground to allow water, leaves and debris to escape. Posts are manufactured from tough, long life 2205 Duplex Stainless Steel to withstand harsh coastal conditions. When installed by our experienced team of tradies, you're looking at a balustrade build worthy of the best homes in Auckland. We have been measuring designing and installing a variety of mini post balustrades for over two decades. We know every potential issue to watch for. We dont cut corners.. and we know all the rules!

VT1 Base Plate

The VT1 glass clamp is a top mount system with an oval shaped base plate for fixing to concrete or timber surfaces. The spigot and base plate cap is avalable in polished or satin stainless steel as standard, but can be powdercoated to any ot the common NZ powdercoat ranges. The spigot is made of 2205 DUPLEX Stainless Steel with higher corrosion resistance and double the strength than 316 steel. Clamps come with a friction mount to suit 12mm glass.

VT2 Hidden Fixing

The VT2 Hidden Fixing spigots have two fixture locations hidden beneath the base for a sleek, minimalistic top mount look. The clamps are avalable in polished or satin stainless steel, but as with the VT1 can be powdercoated to any ot the common NZ powdercoat ranges. The spigot is made of 2205 DUPLEX Stainless Steel and come with a friction mount to suit 12mm glass as standard.

VT2 Edge Fixing

The VT2 edge fixing system provides space saving solutions in narrow decks and walkway areas. The side mounted nature of the design also directs a large portion of the water over the edge. This may aid to solve and existing waterproofing issues where top mounted models may have directed too much water onto the floor. When installing, many face fix systems require a scaffold but with this hybrid down/face fix system it is possible to install the glass from the deck.

Grades of Safety

Grade 1 - Toughened

rail balustrade

If used in a pool fencing scenario (or not protecting a fall greater than 1m) the more cost effective toughened safety glass can be used. The glass is 12-15mm thick and clamped into the posts. In the unlikely event of a breakage, the glass shatters into small fragments.

Although the small individual fragments may be sharp on some edges, it is far less dangerous than the shards produced if a sheet of traditional float glass breaks.

Grade 3 - Frameless Sentry Glass

When protecting a fall greater than 1 metre, Sentry Glass must be used. Highly resistance to collapse, Sentry Glass interlayers are five times stronger and up to 100 times more rigid than other conventional interlayers. The interlayer stays together and upright even when both panes of glass have been broken.

If the glass ever breaks, fragments remain firmly bonded to the sentry glass interlayer, eliminating glass falling to the ground or over the edge.The glass retains its clarity, is extremely durable and resistant to clouding.
