Channel Systems

We offer two aluminium channel systems – GLASSLOC and ONLEVEL 6020/6021- with both systems offering a sleek and contemporary design. GLASSLOC is our biggest seller, but the ONLEVEL offers certain performance characteristics which outperform GLASSLOC and may be more applicable for your chosen application.

Both systems can be floor mounted but we only offer a fascia mount option with the ONLEVEL system. Both systems are sold in either 2.5m or 5m channel lengths and your system quote will calculate the minimum usage. If you want to buy more material and reduce the number of cuts and joins you will be charged the extra material and this can be discussed with your salesperson.

For all applications without handrail over potential fall height 600mm we will use toughened laminated glass and the final thickness is dependent on your selections. For all applications with handrail, we will use toughened glass, but you can upgrade to toughened laminated if you choose to do so. Systems under 600mm with no handrail would be glazed as standard with 12mm toughened glass as entry level as this is the thinnest glass either system can accept.
