50 Glide-On™ Cassettes® at Green Park in Reading

50 Glide-On™ Cassettes® at Green Park in Reading

50 Glide-On™ Cassettes® from Sapphire for Green Park Extra Care in Reading, a fantastic example of true workmanship.

This scheme used 234 Schoeck anchors which were cast-in to the slab, and Sapphire’s brackets were connected to these, taking the bracket from the thermal break within the cavity to outside of the finished facade.

On this project, one of the greatest challenges was the complicated inset balconies in various locations on the building. Sapphire was able to build in large amounts of tolerance to overcome the challenging brickwork in tight inset balconies. Being assembled in Winchester, the balconies were delivered to site with soffits and glass completed, meaning significantly less individuals were involved in each balcony install.

Sapphire’s Glide-On™ system enabled rapid installation of balconies as they arrived on site ready to be installed. Each balcony was then simply lifted into position and slid onto the arms.

Using the innovative Counter Balance Lifter (CBL) the balconies were able to be installed top down as the scaffolding was struck.
