Edge Balustrade System
Description

Edge is an aluminium post balustrade system which is an updated version of the popular Viking balustrade system.  Edge has additional modern features such as hidden fixings, slightly larger post, upstands on the post, and a wider range of aluminium and glass infills.

Edge can be configured in a range of framed or semi-frameless finishes (with and without top rails) and a range of aluminium infills that extends beyond standard baluster rails, with front mounted fins recently introduced for urban design projects.

Key Features
  • Choice of 6mm, 8mm or 10mm toughened safety glass infill
  • Choice of aluminium balusters — 17mm square, or 60mm and 123mm slat finish
  • Front mounted 43mm fin system (popular for townhouses) 
  • Semi-frameless glass finish - with top or without (using 13.2mm laminated glass)
  • Hidden face fixings
  • Technical backup readily available
  • Powder coated in NZ using top quality Dulux powder
  • Quality assured — installed by qualified installers
  • Complies with NZS1170, NZS4223.3.2016, NZBC Clause F9, and 162C of the Building Act, and NF P01-13 (1988-08) for pool safety

Scope of Use
  • Edge Balustrade is suitable for deck and balcony barriers, stairways, handrails, pool fencing and matching pool or stairway gates
  • Suitable for fixing to timber, concrete, steel
  • Edge Balustrades can also accommodate waterproof and floating decks with a specially designed aluminium gutter bracket

A choice of four handrails are available: round, rectangular, and a single or twin pocket Aerofoil style which can be incorporated as a top rail or as a standalone handrail. An interlinking rail, for 10mm semi frameless glass balustrades can be top mounted (on the post caps) or front mounted 100mm below the top edge, using a handrail bracket fixed to the face of the balustrade post. A semi frameless glass finish, without a handrail can be achieved using 13.2mm thick toughened laminated glass, although the use of the Edge slimline top protection cap is highly recommended to help prevent any discolouring of the interlayer.

Limitations on Use
  • Edge Balustrade must only be installed in accordance with the Edge product manual
  • Any deviation from standard fabrication or installation must be accompanied by a site specific PS1, with site specific calculations and drawings. Juralco can help with arranging site specific producer statements
  • Glass must have a minimum strength of 100MPa
  • All glass edges must be polished
  • An interlinking top rail or handrail must be used on Edge semi-frameless toughened glass balustrades
  • A top protection cap is suggested for laminated glass panel infill finishes
