Adapted for Stair runs

Balcony Systems Solutions Ltd introduces a new 72mm X 72mm Newel Post that now allows the Balcony System to be used on stair runs easily.

The Balcony System Glass Balustrade is a unique glass balustrade system, It is designed in a way whereby it relies on the strength of the handrail and thus allows wider spans of glass than any other balustrade system.

The Balcony 1 System Balustrade has a 70mm diameter handrail and with these new 72X72mm square “Newel post” can be used on stairs.

The principle of the system remains the same using the combined strength of the precision engineered handrail profiles and the strength of the glass.

So how does it work?

72 X 72mm Newel posts are installed at the top and bottom of the stair runs. If the run is more than 2.7m then additional posts need to be installed in the middle of the run.

The newel posts are made from two parts; a primary steel post that is installed at the first stage so that the base plate can be covered by the finished floor.
