With the trend for minimalistic architecture going strong, many designs involve a frameless glass balustrade system that doesn’t require a handrail to meet the legal loading requirements, and that is easy to adjust. To help achieve this, architectural hardware specialist CRL has launched two new adjustable glass balustrade systems.
Ideal for residential projects and small commercial applications, CRL Spig-Lite Pro is a fully adjustable glass balustrade system with a unique clamping design that removes the need to hold the glass with locking pins. The elongated holes allow for easy adjustment of the glass panels, ensuring the top edge of the glass is equal when a handrail is not required. The system achieves 0.74Kn loading and features individual spigots that raise the glass to 32mm above floor level creating a natural drainage solution that ensures no water can get trapped inside the balcony area.
Offering the same level of adjustability thanks to the same clamping system, CRL Posiglaze features a one-meter length base shoe that helps achieve up to 1.5kN loading required in larger commercial applications. The system has been designed to be installed without the need of ensuring the fitting surface is totally level.
Excellently engineered, Posiglaze is cleverly manufactured from extruded aluminium, saving weight yet keeping strength with an anodised finish that increases protection against the elements.
Both systems are designed for use with 12mm toughened monolithic to 21.52mm toughened laminated glass and have been tested to BSi standard 6180:2011 for complete peace of mind that safety regulations are being met.
