Frequently asked questions

When it comes to glass balustrades, tempered safety glass is considered the best choice. Tempered glass is specially processed to enhance its strength and safety characteristics. It undergoes a heating and rapid cooling process that strengthens the glass, making it several times stronger than regular glass. In addition, tempered glass is designed to break into small, blunt pieces when shattered, reducing the risk of injury. Its durability, impact resistance, and safety features make tempered glass the ideal option for balustrades, ensuring both aesthetics and security are met.
 

The thickness of a glass balustrade depends on various factors, including the specific application, height requirements, and local building codes. As a general guideline, tempered safety glass for balustrades is typically recommended to have a minimum thickness of 10 millimeters (3/8 inch) or more. However, for higher structures or areas with specific safety regulations, thicker glass may be required to ensure sufficient strength and stability.

Yes, 12 mm (1/2 inch) glass is considered strong and durable for various applications, including glass balustrades. The thickness of glass contributes significantly to its strength and stability. In the case of tempered safety glass, which undergoes a strengthening process, a thickness of 12 mm provides a high level of structural integrity. It can withstand significant loads and impacts, ensuring the safety and stability of the balustrade.

In South Africa, the height specification for balustrades is generally set at 1 meter (approximately 3.3 feet) as per regulations. However, it’s important to consider the specific design rules outlined in South African legislation. According to the legislation, barriers, including balustrades, should be designed in a way that allows for a maximum air gap of 100mm without any deflection in the in-fill material, as stated in SANS 10400-D: Public Safety. These regulations are in place to ensure the safety and prevent the risk of falling or accidents.
