Q-railing has introduced Easy Glass® Up, a glass railing system especially designed for straightforward installation on low parapet walls round terraces, balconies and walkways. New for 2017, it features a base shoe that is ultra-slender at just 80 mm high. This unobtrusive mounting helps to maximize the view, making raised areas an even more enjoyable place to be.
Like all systems in Q-railing’s popular Easy Glass range, Easy Glass Up is designed for straightforward installation. The extremely lightweight profile can be positioned with ease, and the ingenious Safety Wedge system speeds up the mounting of glass panels. Moreover, the entire installation process can be performed from inside the parapet, eliminating the need for scaffolding.
Easy Glass Up also has excellent safety credentials. A balustrade created with Up can withstand line loads of 0.74 kN/m when installed with glass 16.76 mm thick and 800 mm high. “Safety is a key priority for all our railing systems”, says Bruce Bradshaw, General Manager. “Easy Glass Up is no exception. It has been extensively tested and successfully certified against multiple national quality and safety marks, including AbP, statische Berechnung gemäß DIN 18008, NTC 2008, CTE, BS 6180 and SIA.”
Designed for light and medium use, either indoors or outdoors, Easy Glass Up can accommodate glass that is between 12 mm and 17.52 mm thick, and up to 800 mm high. The system includes a top-mount base shoe (custom-bent on request), two 90° connectors and matching end caps. The high-grade aluminium profile has a RAL 9006 silver powder coated finish, so no additional cladding is necessary. Q-railing’s wide range of cap rails, u-profiles or the sleek Edge Protection profiles can also add a distinctive touch to Up railings.
