Technical Information

We can provide drawings, CAD details and other technical information about our systems for your design or project, when requested. Please e-mail your request to: enquiries@vbs-ltd.com.

Our proprietary balustrade systems 1 and 2 are available in a standard RAL powder coat finish or anodized in silver, bronze or “Royal Chrome”, our stainless steel look-alike. Our systems are clean in design, and very straight-forward to implement.

Posts – Our balustrade systems can span certain lengths without vertical support posts. Over this length, extra steel posts are needed to provide increased lateral strength. Posts are in two parts: a steel insert post fixed to the structure or balcony, and an aluminium sleeve in the system colour, connected to the handrail. If insert posts are required for early fitment as part of building works, or for installation prior to water-proofing, we stock these so they can be installed earlier in the program.

Once posts are installed, you can lay paving, decking, etc to hide the base plate; the VBS sleeve, matching your handrail finish, will hide the steel post within.

Bottom Rails – These can be fixed to the decking etc, between the posts in the VBS 1 system, or inside the posts in a continuous run with VBS 2 system. If required these can be supplied with 5mm packing shims that will allow water passage underneath the bottom rail once installed.

We can supply technical details, sections, elevations, etc by e-mail, or talk to us, we are happy to send further information, and to answer technical questions.

Building regulations

VBS’s balustrade systems have undergone rigorous safety testing, both in laboratories and on completed sites. Our systems have been tested to comply with BS6180 and BS6399 in the UK, and with NF P 01-013 and NF P 08-301 in France.

We have our own in house testing equipment that on many projects we mimic site conditions and load test the products in house.

In the UK we usually supply 10mm clear toughened glass, class A to BS6206 (BS EN 12600).

We can send copies of these tests by e-mail, on request.
