Balustrades create modern look for Alperton Community School

Balustrades create modern look for Alperton Community School

Delta Balustrades have provided their products for Alperton Community School as part of a redevelopment project led by the Education Funding Agency (EFA).

Their initial stair balustrade design included vertical bar railings which raised concerns with construction company Kier, due to a need for onsite fabrication and painting resulting in hidden costs.

Delta Balustrades proposed the Orbis system with glass infill to provide better value, quicker installation, a consistent factory finish and high performance in meeting loading requirements.

A 1200mm high solid wall around the voids was proposed with an additional glass balustrade of 500mm high.

Delta Balustrades provided a design detail for the void balustrade fixing to assist Kier in confirming the steelwork design, prior to the void becoming a confirmed instruction from their client.

Early engagement, regarding the void balustrade detail and sequencing, ensured fixing points could be set out before the boarding.

This eliminated fixing through finished boarding and glass installation could follow much later, following full completion of the solid balustrade and timber capping.
