These enable the creation of safe viewing galleries/walkways, overlooking the open plan library mezzanine and the central ‘Agora’ theatre space.The same system was used to create the handrails for the school’s six staircases, maximising natural light and enhancing transparency as students and staff move around the building.

Delta Balustrades Ltd

Orbis OS210/OS211 Glass Infill Side and Top FixThe Eastbourne College Project 150 delivered a sports hall, competition pool, fitness suite, squash courts, dining and common rooms, pavilion and 32 classrooms, while also providing connections between key College facilities. The development, to mark the college’s 150th anniversary, enabled the Eastbourne College to take a giant leap forward providing several high-quality facilities in one substantial build. Delta Balustrades worked with the architect from early concept design stages and provided technical expertise and advice. The Orbis balustrade system throughout provided a consistent glass balustrade style throughout the building and could be utilised for the external pavilion areas also. Whilst mainly throughout new build areas of the college, the look and style of the balustrades was especially important to complement the College’s iconic buildings and environment. Due to the proximity to the sea, special attention had to be given to the materials and finishes for the external balustrades, and 316 grade stainless steel with a Lustre bright polished finish was required to be suitable in a marine environment.

Delta Balustrades Ltd

Mono M311 Glass Infill Top FixThrough the early design stages of this impressive project, Delta Balustrades worked closely with the Liverpool based architects to develop the specification, design and technical details of the balustrade system.As one of the main features of the building, the Mono balustrade system to stairs, atriums, and external terraces with its minimalistic and subtle appearance, transformed the architect’s vision into reality.To meet requirements for buildings designed for children a lower handrail at 600mm above pitch line was required to the stair balustrades and the glass infill panels were required to extend to 1500mm above FFL and stair pitch line.On site close cooperation with the main contractor was necessary to conceal the baluster fixings below the finished floor level in line with the architect’s specification. Externally, this required an early fix of the balustrades without the glass infills, to enable the contractor to complete the waterproofing in view of subsequent trades progressing.

The Mono™ system handrails were provided in oak to offer a warmer finish in the primary school environment and each staircase features a dual handrail with one handrail mounted at a 600mm height for the children and the other in parallel at 900mm for the teachers. The Ark features an outdoor teaching area at first floor level with a balcony accessed from the internal classrooms.

A further small triangular balcony at the side of the building has been specified with the same system as the main first floor balcony. At ground level, the building features steps and ramps and a combination of Mono™ balusters and Orbis™ handrails with a Sigma stainless steel finish have been used to provide guarding, with 10mm toughened glass infill panels.Finally, the stone steps leading to the nursery classrooms were specified with an Orbis™ handrail.

Client: RL HarrisonContract value: £50kProducts used:3kN loading rectangular post balustrade with glass infill panels to viewing areas1.5kN loading 48mm diameter stainless steel balustrade to main staircaseWe were appointed to provide more than 90 metres of balustrades and 25 metres of handrails to Burton Rugby Club’s new Battlestead Croft site in Burton-on-Trent. This project involved supplying and installing balustrades and handrails to the viewing areas and main staircase of the new facility – with two important factors to consider: ensuring we stayed within the client’s budget, and selecting the most suitable products to provide an optimum viewing experience for visitors. The initial design drawings showed a vertical bar system along the viewing area, but this was not aesthetically pleasing and would have limited the view of the pitch for wheelchair users. We worked closely with the client to find the correct solution – as structural glass would have exceeded the client’s budget, we chose a balustrade system with 60×30 rectangular posts that are capable of achieving 3kN loading, with clear toughened glass infill panels. We also increased the height of the handrails, both for additional safety and to ensure it would not obscure the view of the pitch for wheelchair users.

MEGA-Grip Balustrade at Waterloo Station

MEGA-Grip Balustrade at Waterloo Station

Pure Vista Ltd

Case study of a Commercial Glass Balustrade in London. Waterloo Station in London is a key transport hub for the city and one of Britain’s busiest train stations with 99.4 million journeys each year.It’s also the largest train station in the UK, with more platforms and floor space than any other. The station is therefore, subject to regular overcrowding during peak times. This also means that any installations or upgrades to the infrastructure require careful consideration. This is to ensure that the improvements meet the appropriate health and safety measures.The client knew that they needed to install a commercial glass balustrade, in central London, so they approached Pure Vista. As specialists in this type of project we were able to provide a suitable solution using our MEGAgrip or BLASTguard balustrade systems. Pure Vista were able to propose two solutions for this project.There were two options, either they could opt for the MEGAgrip balustrade system, a commercial-appropriate system with up to a 3.00kN loading capacity (as specified by UK building regulations BS 6180:2011 for this type of installation). Or, the second option is using BLASTguard, a fortified version of Mega Grip. This has been successfully tested to withstand a bomb blast and is ideal for areas that may be susceptible to terror attacks. Since MEGAgrip can easily be turned into BLASTguard using a simple converter-kit, Waterloo Station opted for MEGAgrip at this installation. However, they do still have the option to convert this into a bomb-resistant system in the future.The pictures below show our MEGAgrip balustrade in situ in Waterloo Station along side train tracks being used as a safety barrier. The sleek looking design fits well with the overall look of the station and blends in nicely with the location.
