Aluminium balustrades with vertical balusters are as popular as ever. As well as being a cost-effective solution, they also take away the potential headache around the recent changes in legislation focussing on glass balustrades. With timeless and new styles from Spectrum, there are many attractive options available.
Clearspan Heritage has a secondary top rail that provides visual impact whilst retaining clean simple lines. With varying handrail options and fixing methods, Heritage is suitable for a wide range of installation applications including top and face fixing to a range of substrates, plus with castaway (gutter) brackets for waterproof decks. Producer statements (PS1s) are available, with expert advice available from the technical team at Spectrum for non-standard applications.
Klein Architects specified Spectrum Clearspan Heritage on the Selwyn Heights Retirement Village on Korma Road in Royal Oak, Auckland. Spectrum balustrade products had been successfully installed on previous projects that Klein had been involved with. To ensure the success of this project, they decided to specify a trusted, compliant product, backed up by a reliable supplier which fitted in with the aesthetics of the project.
Spectrum's ability to provide complementary services proved vital. Aluminium extrusion curving, louvre manufacture and handrail installation are some of the other services offered. Sections of the balustrade handrail were curved to follow the lines of the entrance path, creating seamless flow for residents in the village.
