Frame & infill balustrade for The Atrium Building

Frame & infill balustrade for The Atrium Building

BA Systems has provided its B30 Frame & Infill Panel system for The Atrium Building, East City Point. The building is part of a £3.7 billion development of Canning Town and Custom House.

The design intent, led by Shepheard Epstein Hunter, was to create a space that was natural in appearance with the use of wood finishes. A glass balustrade design was specified to capitalise on the light created with the all-glass facade.

With the balustrade forming an integral part of the building, the B30 system was proposed as a solution for the void and walkway balustrade. As the balustrade posts serve as a structural element to the balustrade, this means that the base channel for the glass only needed to be a very low non-structural profile.

This meant all fixing details could be concealed within the low floor build-up.n order to achieve the wood effect handrail and deliver a durable and long-lasting product, BA Systems proposed a powder coated wood grain effect finish to be applied to the aluminium profile. With a very tight programme to work to and a number of other trades to coordinate with, the B30 System provided an opportunity to innovate on BA Systems' manufacture and installation techniques.
