New balustrade

Swisspacer has launched La Defender Pico, a slimline balustrade system designed for residential applications.

Measuring 62mm x 75mm, La Defender Pico is a strong balustrade system, tested to a 300kg/m linear load and accredited to BS6180 for glass barriers inside and outside buildings. The system’s continuous gaskets maximise performance through the glass and its anodised aluminium cover offers enhanced durability, the company said.

John Cooper, commercial director of Swisspacer UK and Ireland, said: “This slimline balustrade system adds a sophisticated touch to properties and it’s also incredibly strong and durable. La Defender offers easy, one-sided installation so it’s a popular choice with installers too.”

La Defender Pico joins La Pensilina, a cantilever, load-bearing glass canopy system. Designed for outdoor use and installed above entrance doors or sliding and folding patio doors, La Pensilina is designed for residential and light commercial applications.

These new products are made by Logli Massimo, part of the Saint-Gobain group, which specialises in high performing systems and accessories for the fixing and assembly of glass panels.
