Pradis: Residential Environments (Max height 1400mm)

PRADIS is the new generation of point fix stand off fittings, PRADIS is the new EUROANCHOR.  

PRADIS is a face mounted cantilevered frameless glass barrier system.

Key Features

 - PRADIS is stronger than other conventional systems; anchors, single disc etc.

 - Quick to install and easy to adjust.

 - Due to the design strengths PRADIS can be spaced every 800mm ctc when fixing into concrete, steel and bolt through timber
