SetWidth850 JH Clamp Mini Post on floating stairs

Glass barriers for floating stairs

10 June 2015 by Dan Rawling

This stunning two-story home was designed by GM Designs of Invercargill for a client in Southland. 

Although floating stairs were specified in the original plans, specifications for the balustrade fixings were not yet finalised. With assistance and professional guidance from Brendan Walker at HomePlus Southland, the owners chose Edgetec® JH Clamp balustrade for the stairs and Face Fixed Edgetec® Mini Posts for the landing. Once specified, the JH Clamp fixing threads were cast into the prefab concrete stairs ensuring no cutting was required into the tread (steps). Both balustrade systems are part of the Edgetec heavyweight glass balustrade range, for 12mm or 15mm* toughened glass panels, offering a more aesthetically pleasing finish compared to slimmer, 6mm, 8mm or 10mm glass.

Powder coated In Dulux Sandstone to match the wall decor the Edgetec® JH Clamp fixings blend in with the interior finish, in turn drawing the eye to the illusion of the floating stairs. The Edgetec® Mini Post fixings complement the Edgetec® JH Clamp, with the same colour finish and hidden fixings, maximising the sharp clean finish of the glass panels. This gave the client greater colour flexibility compared to Stainless Steel disc fittings, whilst still being competitively priced.

As per all of the HomePlus range of balustrades, the Edgetec JH Clamp and Mini Post systems are NZS1170 compliant, designed and tested to pass and even exceed, the NZ Building Code requirements and are backed up by a nationwide network of experienced installers.
