BALARDO steel – THE SUCCESSFUL, TYPE-TESTED ALL-GLASS RAILING SYSTEM

All-glass railings are in a class of their own among guardrail systems and are becoming increasingly important in modern architecture. They offer maximum transparency, although they are very costly. With the development of the modular BALARDO system, GLASSLINE has revolutionised the market and made all-glass railings more attractive and cost-effective than ever before. BALARDO steel  is still the undisputed original and is shaping the global market with its unique properties.

SYSTEM PROFILE

The basic element of BALARDO steel  is the support profile with its support clamping system made from high-quality galvanised steel. The glass plates with the specially developed clamping shoe are inserted into this profile and secured firmly in place throughout.

CONNECTION TO THE BUILDING STRUCTURE

Connection to the building structure is possible from above or from the side. Screw and welded connections are also possible.

BALARDO steel  is extremely flexible in both public and private construction projects and when used on level surfaces and staircases. Its structural strengths are particularly beneficial in the case of raised floor constructions, uneven substrates and in applications that require TICS bridging.

INTELLIGENT DESIGN AND FAST INSTALLATION

BALARDO steel is based on a specially developed planning- and installation-friendly modular system consisting of high-quality components. The clamping profile made from hot-dip galvanised steel for securing the panes in place as well as optional structural attachment elements and panels for a range of different requirements guarantee simple and efficient dry installation. Since the glass panes are wedged into the clamping profile, there is no need for glass drill holes or grouting the panes. This makes it easy to replace the glazing at any time without having to dismantle the supporting structure.

There are two mounting sets available:

  1. The CLICK•N Fix mounting set
  2. The wedge band system
