Varied Options for Glazed Balustrades with Spectrum Clearview Systems

Navigating different options of glazed balustrades can be troublesome. While frameless glass balustrades may be at the top of some clients' wish lists, when it comes to glass balustrades, semi-frameless balustrades offer compelling options for a number of reasons listed below:

  • Compared to frameless glass, semi-frameless is a cost-effective option as the hardware and glass is generally cheaper
  • For those wanting minimal visual distractions, it is still possible to have semi-frameless without a handrail using the Clearview Laminated system with structurally glazed laminated glass
  • A handrail is easily used for a feeling of security and a means of safety compliance
  • Where interlinking capping on frameless glass needs to connect into brick or non-structural cladding, the termination point can be troublesome. Clearview eliminates this requirement with the post, providing a sensible solution.

Spectrum has a number of solutions to suit different aesthetic and budgetary requirements:

  • Clearview Capped: Integrated handrail fixed to the top of the post.
  • Clearview Offset: Handrail attached via a bracket to the side of the post. This is a popular choice as it allows a frameless top edge look with the security of a handrail.
  • Clearview Laminated: EVA laminated glass structurally glazed into the posts. No capping rail required. Testing has been done and PS1 available.
  • Clearview Standard: Toughened glass and no handrail. For non-safety from falling applications such as decks less than 1.0m high or pool fencing.
