Framed Balustrades Overview

Framed balustrade systems are essentially a balustrade which uses metal uprights to take the structural loads. This includes, vertical bar balustrades, balustrades which have a glass infill, metal boxing to form a solid wall, etc.

Vertical bar balustrades are a common option. Whilst historically the were considered to be a low cost, industrial looking infill option, now vertical bar options are used as part of a neat architectural style. Using glass infill panels with a support framework used to be a much more common solution. This has become less common because of the simplistic, and neater base fixings of frameless structural glass to Cassette® balconies which removes a lot of the previous costly base channels used for frameless structural glass systems.
