Mini Post Balustrade Frameless Glass Balcony Systems

Mini Post frameless glass balustrade kits can be used in a variety of ways.

Being extremely versatile,  mini-post glass balustrade kits are ideal for glass balconies, patio areas, terraces and can be an effective safety handrail system. There are a number of options when choosing the mini-post balustrade system including base, core, edge, or side mounted designs. The sleek bottom mini stainless steel posts are designed to accommodate glass thicknesses from 10mm to 17.5mm. To achieve a more bespoke design, we have a choice of glass coloured tints available to act as a privacy screen.

These designs are tested to surpass the requirements for UDL loadings meeting domestic requirements of line loads of 0.74kN. Ideal for use on domestic projects and areas of low pedestrian traffic. The high strength comes from the use of 2205 Duplex stainless steel. This makes the component very strong and highly resistant to corrosion even in extreme marine environments. 

The Tilt-Lock design is an ingenious way making the install of the system as simple as possible. With a simple twist of an allen key on the body of the post, the glass self-levels and this easy adjustment saves a lot of time and hassle during installations.

We also provide a number of railing options making this a truly customisable solutions with lots of glass and railing balustrade variations. All design considerations depend on your requirements matching your needs with building safety and regulations considered.

Base Mount Mini Post:

The Square Base design is ideal for use on decking. The four fitting points are located that they the Mini Post can be easily secured into decking timbers under the boards, without the additional need to add fixing noggins in place.

The Oval Base design only requires two fixings per post. The fixing points are further apart as compared to the square base, but this adds additional stability to the post. Use on patio fixes, concrete bases and roofing systems.

Side Mount Mini Post:

Designed to face mount on the side of a platform or parapet, easy to install and is an ideal fitting to use with curved glass balustrade, parapets and under sills. The innovative design allows you to off-stand the glass 40mm from the platform edge, enabling drainage, while maintaining a beautiful infinity balustrade with uninterrupted views. This system works by preinstalling the fixing studs / threaded bar into the edge of the platform or under an opening to create an infinity look.

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.
