Full Glass Railings are an esthetic pleasure but can be the nightmare of the installers.
The problem is that too much tolerances must be taken into account ;
1.tolerance on the ground/support ;
a. concrete or steel
b. installation on an aluminium finishing
c. piercing of the roofing layer
2. tolerances on the glass
3. wind loads & gusts of wind
All those elements lead to a high level of difficulty to deliver a perfect glass railing.You have to be able to line out vertically and horizontally without having to take out the glass from the profile.
If possible without having to freeze the glass position with a wedge.
A wedge can come off its position due to the vibrations of the wind on the glass. In this situation you'll have to go back to your customer to secure the glass railing.
Having an answer on all those requirements would be the solution for the installers.
May I present you the LOB !
How does it work ?
To begin, everything is done on the inside of the balcony. No clips or actions to be added on the outside of the balcony.
We avoid costs of aerial platforms & scaffolders.
When the glass comes into the LOB you will :
As last you put another 50% pressure on bolt 1 and use bolt 4 in order to compensate height differences.
"If a picture is worth a thousand words, then is a video worth more than a million..."
Alignment of the glass front & rear
Securing the angle of the glas
Easily lift up the glass
Stop the back complaints !
Differences in glass heights often are a source of frustration, an expensive loss of time and last but not least a sore back due the lifting of heavy glass panels to add 1,2 of 3mm plastic glass accessories.
We don't mention the stress level when handling the glass and the damage you can have by hitting another panel during the extraction procedure.
For this reason our LOB has bolts on the extension of the trolley in order to lift the glass and to become the same level of the other glass panels without having to extract the glass from the profile.
After aligning the glass with the LOB you can put a finishing profile to become a neat result.
No other system on the market can combine the easy way of installing with the esthetic result
