Effortless balustrade installation at City Peninsula

Effortless balustrade installation at City Peninsula

Over 160 apartments at City Peninsula, Greenwich have benefited from fast and easy installation of stunning glass balustrade systems using C.R. Laurence’s effortless TAPER-LOC® Dry Glaze Balustrade System.

City Peninsula is one of the largest and most ambitious urban regeneration schemes ever seen in Europe with 166 luxurious apartments and triple level town houses, all benefiting from spectacular 360° panoramic riverside views.

C.R. Laurence is the leading supplier to the glazing, railing, architectural and construction sectors and their innovative TAPER-LOC® System was used along with base shoe channels to secure the cantilever glass balustrading to the balconies on the apartment blocks.

The development for clients Bellway Homes, was designed by RMA Architecture Ltd and constructed by Principal Contractors, Ardmore Group.

The balconies are designed to allow residents to take full advantage of the outside areas around the development.

The TAPER-LOC® System conforms to BS6180:1999 and BS6399-1:1996 and is more than 50% faster than alternative methods and is also completely unique, in that it uses a horizontal TAPER-LOC® design, which allows the system to be adjusted, dismantled and re-set. This gave the installers the flexibility and control they needed on site for accurate installation and will make replacing scratched or broken panels effortless in the future.

The development has also secured an ECO Homes excellent ratings award and the exterior elevations to the buildings are greatly enhanced by the glass fronted balconies which give a contemporary and luxurious feel to the development.
