POLYstrade™ Balustrading

Structural balustrading without the headache…….

POLYstrade™ is our structural performance balustrade system compliant to BS6180:2011 loadings up to 3.0kN/m. (others being 0.36kN/m, 0.74kN/m and 1.5kN/m)

Our unique ‘click and fix’ system allows for fast deployment of the product.

All components are produced in house from very durable, high strength and high-grade glass fibre re-enforced Isophthalic polyester resin.

All lateral rail joints are connected with our push fit fittings which in turn are contained within the upright stanchions.

The whole system is Pultruded at our factory in the UK to exacting quality standards. The finished GRP solution will outlast metallic balustrade by many years, offering specifiers and users savings on whole of life ownership.

As with our POLYguard™ handrail system; we have eliminated one of the main drawbacks in any balustrade: The assembly on site. This can be a ‘fiddly’ operation and take a long time to cut, drill and bolt fittings together in a less than ideal environment.

Being a UK manufacturer; it is efficient for us to cut all components to their finished length and pre-machine fixing holes and slots to accept Mid-rails, Top-rails and Kick plates. We can do this with little to no waste as we run these profiles down our own lines.

FEATURES & BENEFITS

DESIGNED FOR PURPOSE

Provide us with an outline drawing or sketch of where you want to install the balustrading and we will design the optimum solution for you.

STRONG & COMPLIANT

POLYstrade™ complies with BS6180:2011 loading requirements. Depending upon the project location; POLYstrade™ is rated to the required surcharge loading as follows: 0.36kN/m: Projects for Domestic use 0.75kN/m: Projects for Commercial use 1.5kN/m: Projects that are retail spaces or Public buildings where people may congregate 3.0kN/m: Projects that are places of Assembly where areas may be susceptible to overcrowding

NON-CORROSIVE

Our material cannot corrode or rot, is not affected by salts, water, oils, acids or alkaline. It is also unaffected by temperature variances. Thus; it’s lifespan is far superior to steel or wood based alternatives.

NON-CONDUCTIVE

No grounding to earth or bonding is required and so all products are ‘Touch-safe’ and ideal for locations near potential sources of electricity.

FAST TO INSTAL

Factory pre-cut, drilled and assembled components & ‘click and fix’ system; cut down drastically on installation times, wastage and issues relating to handling during logistic movements.

MADE IN THE UK

Guaranteed quality: get what you expect and pay for.

SAFETY BY DESIGN

APPLICATIONS

POLYstrade™ is perfect for Rail. Across and on the tops of bridges and for public access areas that may be susceptible to overcrowding. 

POLYstrade™ is also non-conductive and therefore ideal where touch potential is nearby. As with all other GRP products long term asset life (non-corrosion/long life) is also a key benefit it provides.

Furthermore; POLYstrade™ perfectly combines with our GRP Walkway, Platforms and Stair systems to offer a complete solution for station and network renewal.

POLYstrade™ is ideal for providing safe routes and barriers around chemical plants and factories alike, where standard hand rail loadings are not capable of meeting the required loadings. With excellent resistance to a wide range of chemicals and corrosives including acids, alkalis, salt, petrol, diesel and water.
