One can select stainless steel, mild steel, glass, aluminium, timber, concrete or composite materials. The main purpose of balustrades in any building design is to afford safety to the buildings occupants. Aesthetic appeal is a secondary issue. Nonetheless, any home owner would not install a balustrade that is an eyesore. Also consider the merit of having a balustrade that looks appealing but doesn’t function as a safety mechanism. Further, it is not wise to have no balustrade on a staircase or living area due to factor/s affecting the aesthetic value of the property.
Modern home designs often include Frameless glass panels secured in various ways to create balustrades. National Building Regulations require a minimum height of a balustrade to be 1 metre above the finished floor height. The South African National Standards have a set of building codes that balustrade systems need to comply with. Shalom Steel and Wrought Iron Works is a balustrade contractor that can provide you with a professional service in order to ensure that your balustrades comply with building regulations.
Shalom Steel and Wrought Iron Works offers service to the Domestic, Commercial and Light Industrial Markets. Stainless Steel Balustrades: Stainless Steel balustrades are available in either grade 304 brushed stainless steel or in grade 316 mirror polished stainless steel. Coastal areas affect the choice of stainless steel in building project design. The corrosive coastal environment exposes balustrades to salt spray or coastal sea air. In these coastal areas it is recommended that you use grade 316 stainless steel, in a mirror polished finish. Grade 316 stainless steel has non-corrosive properties that will withstand the environment that they are exposed to. Grade 304 brushed stainless steel is recommended for all other areas in balustrade and building designs where there are no corrosive elements. Stainless steel is environmentally friendly, has low maintenance and has become the sought after material in balustrade design. Stainless Steel is available in many different tubing diameters and thickness, shapes and sizes.
