We are specialists in curving balustrade rails by “roll forming” the extrusion. Regular curves are relatively easily formed but irregular or tightening curves are extremely difficult but look superb. Flat facetted panes appear as a curve, but curved safety glass is now available in NZ.
Glass balustrade is always cost effective and enhance any home. Contrary to popular opinion glass balustrade seldom requires cleaning where it is exposed to rain on both sides and with silicon products applied (RAINEX) only requires washing with cold water. While the glass is relatively expensive labour in manufacture is less.
Barred balustrade provides a strong and cheap option for moving people safely. It can have one of three top rails and one or two mid rails in addition to the top rail. Combinations of glass panes and barred balustrade are often popular and barred balustrade is often the Architects choice for commercial installations.
