Glass balustrade for National Army Museum

Glass balustrade for National Army Museum

BA Systems has provided its B40 frameless glass balustrade system for a refurbishment project at the National Army Museum. The aim of the refurbishment was to create more space for new exhibitions and learning facilities.

The Museum, designed by BDP Architects, required a balustrade solution that did not impede views in the open atrium area. BA Systems were contracted by Gilbert-Ashe to provide the B40 Frameless Glass balustrade product to the central voids and stairs.

To achieve a seamless base fixing without compromising on the necessary 1.5kN/m loading, the BA Systems’ design team designed a cantilevered steel fixing bracket with gusset supports.

To achieve the necessary visual standard, a 21.5mm clear toughened and laminated low iron glass was specified. The handrail detail was fixed to the glass with a countersunk bracket to ensure that no handrail brackets would protrude through the glass.
