The Edge balustrade system is based on the proven technology of Viking balustrade, with the addition of modern designs features such as hidden fixings and post upstands to improve the finished look. Made from high quality aluminium, Edge Balustrades incorporate either toughened or laminated glass panels, or aluminium balusters in a variety of configurations, including framed or semi-frameless glass and split rail balusters.

Choice of aluminium balusters — 17mm square or 60mm and 123mm slat finish
Semi-frameless glass finish available — using 13.2mm toughened laminated glass
Hidden face fixings available

Complies with NZS1170, NZS4223.3.2016, NZBC Clause F9, and 162C of the Building Act, and NF P01-13 (1988-08) for pool safety
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.
