Grade 316 stainless steel with grit brush satin finish our post no handrail 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 system 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 angles other than 90 degrees. In such instances you will need to tap and drill two clamps for your posts on site - this allows more flexibility during the installation.
For heights over 8m it may be worth strengthening the system by moving to a handrail solution, but the test data does not demand this.
This is suitable internally and externally and 0.74kN rating covers all domestic use applications and light industrial use where there is limited footfall traffic.
For all applications with fall height over 600mm we will use 13mm toughened laminated glass to comply with building legislation. All toughened laminated systems will have holes in the glass for security pins to be used with the glass clamps. For non-compliant systems under 600mm potential fall height we will use 10mm toughened.
For navigating stairs please consider the fascia (side mounted option) for this section although floor mounted is viable but incurs higher charges for shaped glass panels.
