Context

Moberly Leisure Centre and Kendal Rise is a mixed use development in Westminster that comprises 4-bedroom townhouses, shops, restaurants, bars and a leisure centre. The mixed use nature of the site meant that there was a broad demand for balustrade systems.

Challenge

The leisure centre part of the site required balustrading systems that would withstand the high levels of pedestrian traffic in the main atrium areas and stairways. In addition, the balustrade product would need to complement the sleek design aesthetic of the lesiure centre itself.

The timber-frame construction of the townhouses, meanwhile, presented some challenges for balustrade fixing, since the balustrade channel had to be elevated by almost 500mm in order to finish flush with the floor level.

Solution

Working with main contractor William Dixon, BA Systems provided a range of products for the project. These included:

  • B20 balustrades with heat-soaked glass.
  • B10 wall handrails for the leisure centre's main stairways and voids.
  • B40 frameless glass balustrades for the townhouse terraces (using 21.5mm toughened and laminated glass panels with low-profile handrails).
