Louvretec has extended its range of operable balustrade systems.  The blades must run vertically to prevent any climbing toe holds and offer an opening of less than 100mm when the blades are open.  To also meet compliance the blades must be installed within an approved balustrade frame and post system of 1m minimum height. Choose from the following options:

  • Balustrade with Motorised, vertically placed Louvre blades (available using the 120mm Louvreline or Flush or weatherboard Louvre blades)
  • Balustrade with hand operable, vertically placed 70mm or 90mm Louvre blades using the Kiss Pivot system. To meet compliance the blades must be installed within an approved balustrade frame and post system of 1m in height

Please confirm all Balustrade details with local regulatory authority prior to balustrade installation.
