Powder Coated Aluminium Glass Balustrades
Powder coated aluminium is a type of aluminium that has been covered in dry paint that is electrically charged, this helps with adhesion. This process makes the metal balustrade hard wearing and extremely weather resistant, meaning your Infinity glass balustrades or Palisade railing is low maintenance.
Infinity Corner Posts for Glass Balustrades
Your Infinity glass balustrade posts all feature a ‘fin’ that is situated on the outside of your glass. SHS offer two types of corner posts: The Inside Corner Post and The Outside Corner Post; you can see the difference if we take a bird’s eye view.
Outside Glass Balustrade Corner Post
This type of post has glass insert areas at angles pointed away from its fin to allow for a corner to be created once the glass panels are inserted. You will have outside corner posts when your corner juts out into the void area that your glass balcony is protecting you from. It will depend on where the outside of your fitting area is. For instance, if you have a U-shaped balcony, you would be supplied with 2 outside corner posts. As can be seen below.
Inside Corner Post
This type of post has glass insert areas at angles pointed toward its fin to allow for a corner to be created once the glass panels are inserted. An Inside Corner Post will be required when your corner angles away from the void that your balcony protects you from. In the image below you can see the instances where outside and inside corners are required.
