Choosing the right balustrades
There are some things you should consider before deciding which type of balustrade is right for your property.
There are many different types of balustrades but they must all follow the same regulations as outlined in BS6180:2011 “barriers in and about buildings”.
In brief, while staircase balustrades must meet a height of 0.9 m and a maximum of 1000 mm, the minimum acceptable height for landing balustrades from a finished floor level should be between 1000 mm – 1100 mm.
The permissible loading for various applications ranges from 0.36 kN/m to 3 kN/m, while in special circumstances, it can go even higher. This number represents the horizontal load that can be applied to the balustrade while not deflecting more than +/- 25 mm.

Local, reliable experts
With the help of our extensive supply network, we can offer a wide range of balustrade options to suit the style and needs of our clients.
Safety is our first priority and all of our systems are designed with safety in mind. All of our balustrades can be provided with heat soaked glass if required. Heat soaking is a process the glass goes through to massively reduce the risk of nickel sulphide inclusion which can cause breakages in the glass panels after installation. However, in our experience, toughened glass is usually sufficient.
We pride ourselves on offering beautiful and unique designs, focusing on the quality of the materials and the installation to produce the best balustrades in the industry.
