Glass balustrades are increasingly being chosen to enhance the visual appeal of a structure’s exterior and interior too.
This is a material that offers many practical benefits, not to mention the physical versatility of glass which can literally be chosen to work alongside any other material and within any setting, from old buildings undergoing a refurbishment in the centre of a historical city to new builds in rural landscapes.
From a safety perspective too, glass balustrades have many advantages. Indeed, safety and ease of installation go hand in hand with CRL’s MEGAgrip, a heavy-duty balustrade system suitable for commercial situations.
MEGAgrip is a fully adjustable 3kN commercial balustrade system, designed as a highly-durable public safety barrier for large commercial constructs, such as sports stadiums, transport hubs and similar venues where there is a risk of overcrowding.
One of the simplest systems to fit and adjust thanks to its patented screw-clamp technology to secure the glass in place, it is a dry-glazed system, with no specialist tools required, so the glass can easily be removed and replaced if required. Internal glass clamps make alignment of the glass within the channel simple and as they are compatible with a wide range of glass thicknesses, the product is one of the most adaptable balustrade systems on the market. Lightweight and strong, the system can easily be upgraded with a simple conversion kit, to become a bomb-resistant or bulletproof system.
Also accredited and approved by multiple organisations to verify that it meets national and international building regulations for use as edge protection, where up to 3kN force loading is required.
Precision engineered using extruded aluminium with a geometrically hollowed out core, providing an incredible strength to weight ratio, MEGAgrip is a frameless system, for an aesthetically pleasing safety enhancement in any setting. The system also includes a complete accessory range designed to complement any installation, from end caps to create a tidy finish when the balustrade doesn’t finish against a fixed point, side cladding, top bead and 90-degree pre-fabricate corners.
