New Balustrade Top Rail System Takes Away Worry of Regulation Changes

Everyone involved in balustrade specification has been challenged by the 2016 regulation changes, particularly having to incorporate an interlinking top rail on glass balustrades. Juralco has developed a complete new system to solve this challenge, creating a top rail solution which includes two styles of interlinking rail (round and rectangular), end plate connections for structures and posts, gaskets to suit 12mm and 15mm toughened safety glass and a range of connectors for the rectangular rail, designed to make rail joins look good and keep costs down.

Juralco’s interlinking rails are strong (meeting the changes in Acceptable Solution B1/AS1) and aluminium, so they can be powder coated to match joinery or other colours. Black is very popular, as darker colours are a style statement and additionally they don’t draw the eye and detract from the view.

Juralco has endplates to attach to any type of structure, or a post to leave the existing structure untouched. They also have gaskets to suit 12mm or 15mm toughened safety glass, which combines sealant and friction to lock it into place. New connectors make joins on the rectangular rail even easier as they are available with a fixed 90 degree, an adjustable horizontal for all other angles and a vertical swivel for staircases or ramps.

Connectors dramatically reduce the time needed for jointing rails, they reduce errors and they can reduce the number of joints, as full lengths of interlinking rail can be screwed together at the corner. They are also more forgiving to the inevitable timber movement, with easy adjustment of top rails to fit snuggly against the connector edges.

Available on all Juralco frameless and some semi-frameless systems, the interlinking top rail system can also be used in conjunction with other compliant balustrade systems.
