Balustrades / Balconies

Glass balustrades, balconies and railing systems are becoming ever more common in modern architecture. In order to let more light into the house, balconies are built increasingly from glass. GlasAktiv offers two excellent balustrade systems, Balardo and Baluga, which can help to reduce the installation costs of glass balustrades and balconies considerably.

When installing glass balustrades and balconies it is particularly important to adhere to existing guidelines and norms. One important set of regulations which should be considered is the TRAV (technical rules for the use of anti-fall glazing). Among other things the TRAV regulates which types of glass should be used in balustrades and balconies and which installation systems and fixtures should be used. In the future these technical regulations will be superseded by the new DIN 18008.
