Balustrades

Whether for renovations or new work, Woods Glass can provide numerous choices of engineered structural glass balustrades - all configurations to suit your individual requirements. We can think outside the square when we design your pool fence, deck or stairway balustrades; being aesthetically pleasing and giving total peace of mind for fall protection.

Woods Glass can also provide specific engineered crowd loaded balustrade solutions to meet code requirements for AS/NZ 1170.1:2002, required where crowd loading is possible against barriers.

Excerpt from code:
C1/C2 – Areas with tables or fixed seating - Areas with fixed seating adjacent to a balustrade, restaurants, bars etc.
