Balcony Systems 1.8m high Glass screens
Privacy screens require extra consideration for wind loadings. Loads are A LOT greater than balustrades and will require stronger elements to resist these loads – namely stronger posts with bigger base plates. Screens over 5.4m in length will require an even greater loading factor.

Our Privacy Screen system works in conjunction with our balustrade systems.
Primary posts have a large 300mm X 225mm base plate which is 20mm thick. Cover Posts are 72mm X 72mm square posts which are capped at the top using the circular Balcony 1 system, the handrail will be fixed between these posts.
The glass is glazed into the rails and handrail and held on all four sides. Depending on site location, effective building height and distance from the sea the distance between posts will vary. Post centres will vary between 1 metre in width up to a maximum of one point five metre in width.
The privacy screens can stand alone or work in conjunction with the balcony system balustrade. The privacy screens are built to take the forces that nature will throw at it.
Whether required as a planning stipulation or to simply to protect from wind this is a perfect solution. Please contact us with your requirements.
