Blog » Balustrades Adapted to Regulation Changes
As many of you will know, changes to the regulations for frameless glass balustrades were accelerated in May and came into effect on June 1 2016. The Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment oversee these regulations and outlined the changes - “all new frameless glass barriers that comply with B1/AS1, will be required to have an interlinking rail, unless the barrier is laminated safety glass and has features to retain panes of glass in the event of breakage”.
Working with other industry experts, Juralco fast tracked compliant solutions in time for the regulation changes. This included the introduction of low profile interlinking rails for semi frameless glass balustrades and a 30mm interlinking top rail for frameless glass balustrading.
