Interspec Glass Balustrade

Bespoke Systems structural glass systems

The Interspec glass balustrade systems are ideally suited to applications where the simplicity of the structure and where a clear view is required through the balustrade to a staircase or balcony, either for the interior or exterior of a building.

Created without the use of vertical supports, the glass balustrade includes toughened or laminated glass and a stainless steel handrail (dependent on the application). A vast range of glass options including clear, low-iron, tinted, manifestations and laminated with coloured vinyl are available to create a truly bespoke solution.

Standards

The glass balustrade systems are fully compliant with Approved Document M 2004 and BS8300:2000, BS6180 and BS EN 1991.

Total Supply and Fix Package

Our handrail and balustrade division offer a total supply and fix package for modular handrail and part-fabricated balustrade systems from initial conception through to final installation.

The BS 6180 certified base shoe of this glass railing system includes the revolutionary adjustable unique-disc System, which allows you to adjust and secure glass infills easier than ever before. The system is designed with convenience in mind. Thanks to the tolerances of the drilled holes, you can tighten bolts and level uneven surfaces effortlessly. In addition, the system has been designed so installation work can be carried out from the inner side of the balustrade.

Features:

  • As a symmetrical top-mount base shoe, it is always positioned correctly.
  • Minimal use of anchors in base-shoe installation.
  • A choice of various base-shoe fixing methods (mechanical anchors, stud anchors and even threaded rods)
  • Unique and easy-to-use unique-disc System and unique-disc tool allow adjustment of glass panels by up to 20mm in any direction.
  • A click sound clearly signals secure glass mounting.
  • Installation work all takes place inside the glass balustrade.
  • Resists line loads of up to 0.74 kN/m when using 4 inlays and discs per metre, using 5 per metre makes it able to resist line loads of up to 1.5 kN/m.
  • Available in brushed or mill-finished aluminium.

Free-standing glass protective barrier requires 4 design loadings to be taken into consideration:

1. Line load (Horizontal UDL) kN/m.

2. UDL (Infill UDL) kN/m2.

3. Concentrated load kN.

4. Impact Force BS EN 12150.

At Lloyd Worrall we will provide you with either structural calculations to demonstrate these important factors have been met or provide manufacturers certification to demonstrate this.

Fixing Detail – Top Rails

The base glass clamp features a state-of-the-art, light and airy design characterised by its geometric form. Due to the open design of the base glass clamp, the glass panels seem to float. With a straightforward elegance and a concept ensuring maximum transparency, this system is a glass balustrade that will set your project apart.

The base glass clamp and its matching glass connectors use clean and sharp forms to elegant effect. They also benefit from attractive design features, including satin-brushed details and a premium finish on the high-grade stainless steel, achieved using glass-bead blasting. The unique and pure geometric form makes the system a true eye-catcher, setting a new trend for iconic elements enhancing the interior of private residences and light commercial builds.

Features:

  • Top glass connector with the same unique design.
  • Additional handrail adapter and end caps available.
  • No visible screws to distract the eye.
  • Base glass clamp can be halved for end solutions.
  • Installation work all takes place inside the glass balustrade.
  • Resists line loads of up to 1 kN/m.
  • Available in glass-bead-blasted stainless steel with satin-brushed details.
