Frameless Spigot Mounted Balustrades

This type of glass balustrade is ideal for balcony areas, and frameless side pin fixed glass balustrades come with: Duplex Grade 2205 Stainless Steel Spigots , 12mm Toughened Glass and a Stainless Steel or Timber Handrail (either side mounted or top mounted – see images below).

This type of glass balustrade can also be installed with no handrail – using a laminated Vistaview product. This laminated product looks great (see images below), but it does add a significant cost to your installation

Top Mount Handrail

Spigot mounted glass balustrades are very popular (particularly for balcony areas) as they look amazing, and the spigots ensure a very strong fixing method into the floor surface. Spigot mounted glass balustrades can also be used on stair and void areas.

A top mounted handrail looks really sleek on a spigot mounted glass balustrade - as there is no need for any “glass to handrail” brackets coming out from the side of the glass panels.

Easily the most popular top mounted stainless steel handrail profile is the thin 21mm x 25mm rectangular, but other top mounted handrail profiles are available (eg 25mm round, 42mm round, or 25mm x 50mm rectangular – which is quite an expensive profile).

Side Mount Handrail

Spigot mounted glass balustrades are very popular (particularly for balcony areas) as they look amazing, and the spigots ensure a very strong fixing method into the floor surface. Spigot mounted glass balustrades can also be used on stair and void areas.

A side mounted handrail is generally the most popular option with a spigot mounted frameless glass balustrade – as this ensures that there are no finger marks left on the glass panels.

The side mounted stainless steel handrails come in three different profiles – 38mm round (very popular, sleek design), 50mm round (strong and sturdy handrail), and 25mm x 50mm rectangular (also a very popular profile).

No Handrail

Spigot mounted glass balustrades are very popular (particularly for balcony areas) as they look amazing, and the spigots ensure a very strong fixing method into the floor surface. Spigot mounted glass balustrades can also be used on stair and void areas.

A spigot mounted glass balustrade is allowed to have no handrail – as long as the glass used is a thick (usually 14.28mm thick) custom made laminated product called Vistaview.

Vistaview is a very expensive product (far more expensive than the normal 12mm clear toughened glass panels) – plus every installation using Vistaview must achieve engineering certification. This engineering certification adds a further cost of approximately $800 to the already significantly increased cost of the laminated Vistaview glass panels – hence not having a handrail on your spigot mounted glass balustrade is an expensive exercise.
