A stylish and elegant balustrade that you can rely on for safety
Balustrades are safety barriers preventing falls in areas with drops 1+ metre above ground, which is most commonly decks, stairways or balconies. For your balustrade needs, HomePlus recommends the popular Edge aluminium post balustrade, which comes in a variety of styles using glass or aluminium baluster infills.
Baluster (or rails) are 17mm square and can be fitted to the full height of the balustrade or with a split rail finish. However, with increased demand for more architecturally styled 'feature' balustrades the Edge range includes options for slat, louvre or a front mount fin style. Slats come in 60mm or 123mm widths and can be fitted vertically or horizontally, whilst the louvres are 120mm wide and overlap for a stunning modern look.
Edge fully framed glass balustrades use 6mm thick toughened glass infill, framed with a top and bottom rail, in either a full height or split rail finish. The top rail is fashioned from one of five styles of handrails - round, rectangular, slimline interlinking rail, aerofoil or double aerofoil, all finished in a powder coat colour matching the posts.
Semi-frameless glass balustrading is available in a choice of configurations that accommodate either 8mm or 10mm thick toughened safety glass. 8mm thick toughened glass balustrades are fitted with one of five handrail styles - round, rectangular, slimline interlinking, aerofoil or double aerofoil, without a bottom rail.
Semi-frameless 10mm glass balustrades have two options for fixing handrails, either top or front mounted. A specially developed 60mm x 15mm interlinking rail can be top mounted on the post caps, or front mounted on a handrail bracket, which is fixed to the face of the balustrade post. Additionally, all of the four standard handrail designs can be fitted on this bracket.
If you are looking for a more traditional semi-frameless finish (with no rail top or bottom of the glass), Edge balustrade can be fitted with a 13.2mm laminated, toughened glass which doesn't need a handrail.
All Edge balustrades are made and installed to fit your home's requirements, in a choice of modern colour finishes. HomePlus recommends Dulux powder coat finishes, either Dulux Duralloy with a 10 year surface warranty or Duratec with 20 year surface warranty, for long term durability and a great looking finish.
