Mono balustrade system
Delta Balustrades worked closely with 2020 architects in Liverpool to develop the specification, design and technical details of the balustrade system for the new Park Brow Community Primary School in Kirby.
The Mono balustrade system was specified for the stairs, atriums, and external terraces. With its minimalistic and subtle appearance, it is one of the key features of the building.
To meet the requirements for buildings designed for children, a lower handrail at 600mm above pitch line was required to the stair balustrades and the glass infill panels were required to extend to 1500mm above FFL and stair pitch line.
The baluster fixings were concealed below the finished floor level, in line with the architect’s specification.
An early fix of the external balustrades without the glass infills was required to enable the contractor to complete the waterproofing so other trades could make progress.
