The X1-Series Awning Balustrade is an extension of the Fascia Fix Balustrade. It incorporates stanchions which extend below the floor level at an angle, away from the fascia, to support the awning panel. This panel with translucent or tinted glass can be used to reduce the amount of direct light and heat entering the lower level as well as providing a level of privacy screening.
This system is designed to fix to the face of the balcony structure, whether it be the concrete slab edge or lightweight framing.
This sunshade balustrade system is suitable for use on; houses, residential buildings and offices with the F485/35 fascia fix stanchion; retail buildings with the F585/35 fascia fix stanchion and; areas subject to overcrowding with the F685/35 fascia fix stanchion.
The 50×10 handrail fully complements the X1 Series stanchions and is designed to maximise the views attainable through the balustrade whilst complying with the “interlinking handrail” requirements of AS 1288.
