The owners of this contemporary home have an active dog living with them and they needed a practical, but good-looking safety barrier on their deck. Having recently purchased the home from the original owners who had not factored a deck barrier into their design, the new owners needed a balustrade that looked like it was part of the original design.
Facing a busy road which accesses the beach and local boat ramp, the low-height deck is accessed directly off the ground floor lounge and living area. With regular visits from young grandchildren, along with housing their busy dog, the owners quickly realised they needed a deck barrier. Working with HomePlus Rodney, their local balustrade dealers, they came up with a very pleasing solution.
Edgetec JH Clamps were chosen for their minimalist finish, particularly as they were fixed onto the deck face and are not visible from inside the house. As the deck is less than a metre off the ground, there was no need for full height glass panels (1000mm), and so 900mm panels were used. Manufactured from high quality aluminium, the JH Clamps were powder-coated in the client's choice of colour, which was matched to the home's finish — Dulux Satin Black. The clients are thrilled with the finished look.
