We want you to be equipped with everything you need to install your glass balustrade. Therefor we have compiled a kit with everything you need for your project.
All screws and bolts
Things to consider when choosing your balustrade
Your decking/Surface: Timber, composite decking, slabs, tiles or concrete etc.
Firstly you need to look at what sort of decking or surface you are going to be fitting your posts to. Bolt down posts can be bolted on to most timber or composite decking. Make sure you have a good solid structure beneath your boards to fix your bolts down in to. You will need a minimum of 110mm to fix your base plate on to.
If fixing to slabs or tiles you are drilling through the material to fix the base plate and screws. This naturally means that there can be splits and cracks in the tiles. In these cases stainless steel posts that can be cored in to the surface may be a better option. Please see out stainless steel options.
Side Fix or Bolt Down Posts
Most posts will be bolt down with a few exeptions. If you have timber railway sleepers turned on their side to form a raised decking then side fix posts will be more suitable. This is due to width of the sleeper only being 100mm and you need over 110mm to fix a base plate on to.
Available in mid, end and corner posts. When measuring you will normally require 2 end posts, then 1 corner if an L shape or 2 if a U shape. Then you will have 1 mid post positioned every 1 metre. Up to a maximum of 1.2m between posts.
Available in end and mid posts. If fitting an L or U shape, 2 posts will be required with a small gap.
With both bolt down and side fix posts, you have the choice of fitting the glass either flush to the top of the post, or by leaving a 80mm gap at the top.
Top rail/ Handrail
Top rails come in both a rectangular and oval shapes to suite square and oval Marano posts. They can be purchased in 3m and 5.8 m lengths. You will also need a 90 degree corner connector if fitting a corner. Please see the list of accessories for end caps, in line connectors and wall brackets.
If you have an angle of more or less than 90 degrees you will require to use stainless steel posts as they can be altered to suit any angle.
