With the majority of houses being of timber framed construction this new fixing allows the design of a building to incorporate the correct sized framework is included for the installation of a glass balcony.
New decking areas can be designed with the right sized timber to accommodate the timber fixing plate or existing can be bolstered up to suit.
Mark, Pure Vista Director said “We were constantly having to help installers or architects get around the issue of having a balustrade installed on to a timber framed building. We ourselves had to come up with some interesting get arounds or simply having a total redesign. This plate opens up having balustrade fitted to timber which installers can walk away happily knowing it will be secure. The timber plate can be incorporated with our BalconySeal system to provide a waterproof installation”.
Compatible with POSIglaze base fix this new addition will allow frameless installations onto timber safely. Adam, one of Pure Vista’s Directors said “The plate is engineered to spread the load and minimise the risk of splitting or crushing the timber, while also preventing the fixing from pulling out under extreme loads”.
The patented Pure Vista Timber Fixing Plate is fixed to the timber using four 6x100mm wood screws and have a 20 microns thick zinc plating which makes them suitable for outdoor use.
It’s possible to rebate squares out of the timber to recess the Timber Fixing Plates, lay the waterproof membrane over the top and use the BalconySeal® system on the top for a waterproof installation. The timber plates have been tested to suit domestic balustrade/balconies up to 1200mm high (0.74kN line load to BS 6180). The wood is required to be a minimum width of 100mm and depth of 120mm.
