30/09/2013 •

The X1-Series Fascia Fixed Balustrade with Round Handrail system is designed to fix to the face of the balcony, landing or stair stringer structure, whether it be the concrete slab edge or lightweight framing.

It can be fixed to a concrete slab edge with a minimum thickness of 210mm, timber framing or steel beams. Where fixing to a PFC with flanges protruding out, the PFC needs to be a minimum of 180 high min. An alternative bracket is available for slabs less than 210mm (180mm min.) and PFC’s less than 180mm on request.

This balustrade system is suitable for use on; houses, residential buildings and offices with the F4850 fascia fix stanchion; retail buildings with the F5850 fascia fix stanchion and; areas subject to overcrowding with the F6850 fascia fix stanchion.

The 38 diameter handrail complies with the requirements of AS 1428.1 whilst also complying with the “interlinking handrail” requirements of AS 1288.
