Glass balustrade solution for Paddington exchange

Glass balustrade solution for Paddington exchange

BA Systems has provided their B40 frameless glass system for Paddington Exchange; a residential development comprising of 150 apartments. The development provides 1, 2, 3 and 4 bedrooms apartments, a combination of private and public amenity space, along with roof terraces and private balconies.

With the balustrade being an integral part of the architectural vision, this BIM Level 2 project presented a number of initial design challenges such as the handrail for the vertical bar balustrade needed to be fixed behind the brick slip facade to achieve the necessary balustrade loading.

BA Systems were contracted by Bouygues UK to deliver balustrade solutions to the inset balconies, terraces and stair cores on this prestigious development. For the inset balconies and terraces, where glass balustrade was required, the B40 Frameless balustrade product was proposed. To accommodate varying upstand heights, two fixing details were designed.

To complement the brick facade, a vertical bar balustrade was required for some inset balconies. BA Systems proposed the B30 Frame and Infill balustrade. In order to create a sturdy solution that met loading regulations, the BA Systems design team developed 2 bespoke fixing options for the balustrade.

On the stair cores, the B20 balustrade with a satin stainless steel handrail and glass infill was complemented with the 42mm diameter stainless steel B10 handrail.
