Post And Saddle System

One of our most popular styles of glass balustrade systems, the post with saddle glass balustrades are an elegant contemporary design. Grade 316 stainless steel with grit brush satin finish our post and saddle balustrade system passes BS 6180 with a 0.74kN rating. Independent static calculations conclude this system is suitable in a high wind load area if you follow the appropriate fixing data (extreme wind loads need further consideration). For all our test data please visit /important-documents-and-certification/

The maximum height for this glass balustrade is 1150mm and maximum glass span is 1200mm. The system can be manufactured to different heights for additional charge, and it can be used in designs with corner angles other than 90 degrees.

The post and saddle glass balustrades are suitable for use internally and externally and 0.74kN rating covers all domestic use applications and light industrial use where there is limited footfall traffic.

For all floor mounted applications, we will use 10mm toughened glass. For all side mounted options, we will use 13mm toughened laminated with holes for the security pins in the clamps. This is to comply with building legislation and ensure that if side mounted panels were to break there is no fall hazard on traffic below as the security pins will hold the panels in position until replaced.

For navigating stairs please consider the fascia mounted glass balustrade posts (side mounted option) for this section although floor mounted is viable but incurs higher charges for shaped glass panels.
