Modern balustrades use aluminium and glass components to create a reliable, long lasting safety barrier for your home.
The choice of balustrade style comes down to a few things like cost, whether you prefer glass (so your view is clear) and ultimately your personal preference.
A general rule of thumb for balustrades is – The thicker the glass the stronger it is and the less “aluminium hardware” needed to support it. So thicker glass panels are ideal for frameless glass balustrades, which have the least aluminium fixings showing.
Otago Frameless Glass offers only engineered systems compliant with the NZ building code and glass compliant with the NZS4223 glass standard for glazing in New Zealand. Our systems are delivered with a producer statement or PS1 for the consent phase of your project and finally a PS3 for code of compliance at the end of the project.
Double Disc Anchors are manufactured from solid 316 Marine Grade Stainless Steel. The 30mm long body sets the 12mm/15mm toughened glass panels out from the deck to assist with water draining and cleaning.
The Double Disc Anchor system is ideal for external balconies and stairs – as well as for internal stairs and landings. It can be fixed directly to either timber, steel or concrete surfaces. The finish options are mirror polished stainless steel with a hidden fixing detail or satin stainless steel with a visible fixing detail.
Our channel systems are Cantilevered, top or face fix that offer a sleek linear design, for clear views. Manufactured from architectural grade aluminium, the proprietary Infinity clamps fix the glass panels without a requirement for holes in the glass.
Fully adjustable, even if the deck moves after installation. Custom coloured with a choice of over 40 standard Dulux powder coat finishes, Infinity balustrade clamps are set at regular centres, with alignment via a continuous back plate.
Mini Posts are ideal for deck or stair balustrades and pool fencing as they are designed to offer maximum glass exposure for clearer views. Available as top fix or face fix, Mini Posts have crafted cover plates which hide the engineered stainless steel fixings.
