Balustrades that can be made to match your design concepts –exactly. Not obstructing residents’ view while at the same time not allowing residents to be too visible – this is a conflict of interests which often confronts those designing balcony balustrades. Thanks to the way individual designs can be implemented, the degree to which Bruag’s semi-transparent balustrades allow light through can be matched to residents’ needs in a completely bespoke manner.
Laser cutting opens the door to completely individual designs. From concept to CAD, from CAD to the laser-cutting equipment, from the laser to the industrial coating machine and finally the finished product, what we have is a balustrade that gives any building a definite degree of uniqueness. The flexibility offered by our perforations additionally promotes interaction between light and shadow, such that the ambience on the balcony varies according to the time of day.
Spanning Great Lengths, and Easily Installed
When it comes to mounting the balcony balustrades, an all-round metal frame sized 40 x 40 is what we recommend. The panels can even be installed up to a width of 3.6 m. When it comes to splitting the panels, you do not always have to make a bar – the perforation pattern can continue across several panels unbroken so as to create an oversized picture.
It is not only the installation which is less expensive than when other materials are used, but the costs associated with the panels themselves are less than when glass is used, for example. Bruag adopts an approach of charging by the net amount used. So you might pay for wastage nor any additional charge for predrilled holes in cases where these need to be prepared in advance.
Fall prevention tests carried out at EPH in Dresden, Germany, have attested to the stability of the panels when used as balcony balustrades. The precise results of the tests, along with additional information, can always be found within the download section of our homepage, www.bruag.ch.
