Frameless Mini Post Balustrade and Balcony Systems

A different concept for that ‘Frameless Glazed’ look. The Mini-Post frameless glass balustrade is extremely versatile and is suitable for a variety of installations including glass balconies, safety railings around a raised deck or patio area and roof top terraces. There are four Mini-Post profiles available which are base, core, edge, or side mounted designs. This versatility leads to extra flexibility in reaching the most suitable solution for bespoke installation and design requirements. Designed to accept glass thicknesses from 10mm to 17.5mm dependent on use and application. The glass is also available in a selection of coloured tints which can act as a privacy screen and give you that personal touch to your system.

Stylish & Economical Solution

A stylish yet economical alternative to the channel design, the Mini-Post offers excellent value for a frameless glass balustrade without compromising on quality or safety.

Instead of an aluminium channel, two glass brackets hold each panel in place. These are manufactured from Marine Grade 2205 Duplex stainless steel which offers superior corrosion resistance in coastal locations, or in areas with high chloride, humidity and pollution levels.

Frameless Mini Post Balustrade Installation

The Mini Post Range of Balustrade can be installed on various different surfaces. With 4 designs available, you will find a Mini Post to meet your fitting needs.

Elite Balustrade Systems provide full fitting instruction for each design, with bespoke instructions guiding you through your individual design plan. The success to any install is preparation. The strength of a balustrade is only as good a what your fitting to, and a strong structural sound substrate is key to a successful install. If work is required to strengthen the substrate, make sure this is carried out prior to starting your install. Suitable substrates include: concrete, masonry, steel, structural timber, blockwork. If the substrate moves prior to install, don’t install the balustrade until remedial work is undertaken.

Layout plans provided prior to manufacturer can be used to help you mark-out and prepare the area that will be taking the balustrade fittings. On some surfaces and designs, fittings can be pre-installed in line with the fitting guidelines. Only use fittings designed to work in the material they are designed for. This may vary from resin bar, threaded bar and bolts, expandable bolts or coach screws. Your local hardware store will advise the best solutions for your needs.

The key to a successful install is planning. Seek advice when unsure. Use the right tools for the job. Buy new drill bits, screw heads and socket set to enable a quality install. By investing in the right tools, you assure that your balustrade purchase is a good investment that will last for years.

Our customer, like us was very impressed with the quality and the finish of the product and we have had lots of positive feedback from onlookers.
