Hiding the Ugly Parts of a Floating deck

Floating, waterproof decks are a modern phenomenon that continue to challenge designers and product suppliers to come up with solutions that can accommodate their requirements. Unexpected challenges often arise with new products and the exposure of deck edge details through glass balustrades was one such unforeseen design dilemma.

Solution 1: Aluminium Slats

On a recent installation, HomePlus balustrade experts worked with the architect to come up with a solution to hide the deck details. Using a 123 x 17mm aluminium slat, they custom made the hidden detailing; fitting them into the balustrade post before installing the glass infill, for a completely integrated finish. Powder coated in the same colour as the balustrade fixtures, the slats blended in and continued the clean lines of the floating deck.

Solution 2: Frosted Glass

On this major home renovation design, the solution suggested was a 200mm frosted strip at the glass panel bottom edge, for the ultimate sleek, minimalist finish. For architectural designer Mark Brown (Solutions Architecture), the balustrade finishing details were an important decision, as he was aware they are the first thing seen when approaching the home. He further enhanced the finished design by specifying an Appliance White powder coat finish to match the home's weatherboards.
