Maximum transparency

Q-railing has launched Easy Glass Up, a glass railing system designed for straightforward installation on low parapet walls round terraces, balconies and walkways.

New for 2017, it features a base shoe that is ultra-slender at just 80mm high. This unobtrusive mounting helps to maximise the view.

The lightweight profile can be positioned with ease, and the Safety Wedge system speeds up the mounting of glass panels. The entire installation process can be performed from inside the parapet, eliminating the need for scaffolding.

A balustrade created with Up can withstand line loads of 0.74kN/m when installed with glass 16.76mm thick and 800mm high.

“Safety is a key priority for all our railing systems,” Bruce Bradshaw, general manager, said. “Easy Glass Up is no exception. It has been extensively tested and successfully certified against multiple national quality and safety marks.”

Designed for light and medium use, either indoors or outdoors, Easy Glass Up can accommodate glass that is between 12mm and 17.52mm thick, and up to 800mm high.

The system includes a top-mount base shoe (custom-bent on request), two 90° connectors and matching end caps. The high-grade aluminium profile has a RAL 9006 silver powder coated finish, so no additional cladding is necessary.
