Balustrade installation made simple

Installing glass balconies and balustrades without a handle rail for a minimal and high-end finish is not only trending but helpfully is now more straightforward than ever, with the CRL Posiglaze system, the company has reported.

Fully adjustable even on uneven surfaces, Posiglaze features a unique clamping design and a quick and easy adjustable method to align glass panels without a handrail. Designed out of extruded aluminium, the system is lightweight and strong.

Installation is possible in just four easy steps: fit the base channel to the substructure; clip the glass side clamps to the bottom edge of the glass panel; position the glass in the channel; and attach the cover strip and bead gasket.

The surface mount and the fascia mount base shoes can both accommodate 12mm-21.52mm glass thanks to the clamp kit design, providing a versatile, easy-to-use installation method for rail-free glass balustrades.

Also suitable for residential projects, CRL Spig-Lite Pro is a fully adjustable glass balustrade system with a unique clamping design that removes the need to hold the glass with locking pins. The elongated holes allow for easy adjustment of the glass panels, again ensuring the top edge of the glass is equal when a handrail is not required.

The system achieves 0.74kN loading, and features individual spigots that raise the glass to 32mm above floor level, creating a natural drainage solution that ensures no water can get trapped inside the balcony area.

Both systems are designed for use with toughened monolithic glass or toughened laminated glass and have been tested to BS 6180:2011.
