VistaView Frameless Glass Balustrades

NCC compliant glass balustrade system, engineered to eliminate handrails

Designed around the SGP interlayer, Vista View™ panels provide a permanent barrier in the event of failure without the need for a handrail. The SentryGlas Plus (SGP) interlayer provides structural rigidity one hundred times stiffer than conventional laminating material and is highly resistant to de-lamination or clouding.

FAQs

Can't see your answer? Contact us

Is a handrail necessary for frameless glass balustrades in Australia?

If your balustrade is more than 1m above floor level, building codes require the installation of a handrail. However, a balustrade without a handrail is possible through a Performance Solution under the National Construction Code (NCC), requiring engineering design and certification. Vista View is an approved balustrade system for installation without a handrail.

Are there height restrictions for frameless glass balustrades without a handrail in Australia?

The BCA typically requires residential balustrades to be at least 1000mm in height and 865mm for non-residential buildings. Local variations or specific project requirements may apply, so we advise you check for the most up-to-date information based on your location and project circumstances.

Can frameless glass balustrades be customised to fit specific design preferences?

Yes, Vista View frameless glass balustrades can be customised to meet specific design preferences, including glass shapes, types, finishes, and hardware.

What is the typical cost of installing Vista View?

The installation cost for Vista View depends on factors such as project location, site access, fitting types, panel size, and more.

What is the warranty supplied with Vista View?

Vista View is guaranteed against edge delamination for a period of five years. Refer to the Vista View warranty for further details.

What is an SGP interlayer?

SentryGlas® (SGP) is a type of interlayer used in laminated glass, manufactured by Kuraray. SGP provides enhanced strength, stiffness, and safety compared to traditional interlayers.

Are there any specific cleaning requirements for SGP laminated glass balustrades?

Regular cleaning with a mild detergent and water is usually sufficient. Avoid abrasive materials to prevent scratches.
