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.
