This increasingly popular panel type offers glass spanning between the posts, with or without a handrail.

Framed or semi frameless

The premium post system provides a barrier with minimal obstruction to your view. The clean lines of the exposed top and lower edges of the glass capture the frameless look of our other styles, but are typically more friendly on the wallet. For the lowest cost option, we offer the same style system encorporating a matched handrail so that regular toughened safety glass can be used.

Common Styles

A range of Aluma Balustrading styles are available. The most common of the glass based styles are shown below but there are more to choose from (including options for post and rail only). Give us a call on 0800 580 680 to discuss all of the options available
Spectra A unique system with glass spanning between two posts. Like the Vetro system, glass is supported by the recesses in the posts leaving clean exposed top and lower edges. A Spectra system is semi-frameless but the built in rail allows for standard toughened glass panels to be used and reduces the cost.
Vetro Glass spans between two posts and is held in place by slotted recesses in the posts. The stylish frameless appearance comes from favouring glass over railing and leaving clean exposed top and lower edges. However, as there is no handrail laminated styles of glass must be used to hold glass in place in the event of a breakage.
Decor Glazed The most cost effective option, Decor systems are fully framed and allow for glazed safety glass panels. No exposed edges means no additional glass edge processing and a handrail is incorporated for maximum safety.

Glass Types

We glaze our high quality, premium balustrades in strict accordance to NZ housing regulations. With new laws coming into effect in 2017, we have a range of options that not only comply, but still have the high class 'frameless' glass appearance.

An interlinked rail built into the system provides a barrier to greatly reduce the risk of people falling

Interlinking rail systems allow for toughened safety glass to be used as the glass is not required to hold itself together in the unlikely event of a breakage. The 'rail' is connected to each pane of glass and also to the building and provides the safety barrier to a fall.
A top edge rail capping (or handrail) will protect the edge of the glass but in the event of glass breaking, toughened safety glass will fracture into small safe fragments. Contact us for more information and pricing on our balustrade systems.

If the glass breaks, glass fragments remain held in place with clips, firmly bonded to the interlayer.

This system is made with 13.2mm Toughened Laminated Safety Glass (EVA interlayer). In the event of the glass breaking, the fragments of glass stay bonded to the interlayer. The glass in an EVA system retains its clarity after years of exposure. It is extremely durable and resistant to clouding.
A handrail, continuous top edge rail or interlinking glass clamps is generally combined with an EVA system. The interlinking clamps or capping will prevent glass collapse in the unlikely case of dual pane fracture.

Highly resistance to collapse, the rigid interlayer keeps the glass upright, even in the unlikely event of glass breakage.

Toughened Laminated Safety Glass with SentryGlass structural interlayer. SentryGlass interlayers are five times stronger and up to 100 times stiffer than other conventional interlayers. This 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. No additional edge clamps or interlinking rails are required with this system.
