Buying your frameless glass balustrade system from a professional ensures a product that suits your interior, but most importantly is safe for it’s intended use.
A question so many homeowners ask is, where can I buy a frameless glass balustrade system? Even though Louis makes light of the subject in the above Feedback Friday video. The answer needs more attention than most of you think. It’s a fact, you probably can buy a frameless glass balustrade from your local shower guy, your tiling supplier and chances are, you could probably even get your gardener to source and supply a frameless glass balustrade. But, knowing that your frameless glass balustrade is a structural element and a specialised trade, the design, manufacture and installation needs to be according to the SANS regulations. This is why it’s not recommended to buy any balustrade from just anywhere.
A frameless glass balustrade is a structural element and needs to be treated as such.
A frameless glass balustrade as a whole is a structural element in a home or building and must be treated as such. The purpose of any balustrade is to prevent the occupants from falling from dangerous heights and incurring severe injuries.
A frameless glass balustrade can only be designed and signed off by a professional structural engineer.
A balustrade needs to be designed in consultation with a registered professional structural engineer. On completion of your job, you must insist on your Form 3 engineer sign off, which is confirmation that your balustrade is safe for it’s intended use and that it will perform as it should in the event of an accidental impact.
