Powder Coated Aluminium
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 hard wearing and extremely weather resistant meaning your Infinity or Palisade railing is low maintenance.
Infinity Corner Posts
Your Infinity balustrade posts all feature a ‘fin’ that is situated on the outside of your glass. When it comes to our 2 types of corner post, Inside Corner Post and Outside Corner Post, you can see the difference if we take a bird’s eye view.
Outside Corner Post
This type of post has it’s glass insert areas at angles pointed away from it’s 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 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 it’s glass insert areas at angles pointed toward it’s 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 insider corners are required.
