What are Tecdur® Frameless Glass Balustrades
Tecdur® Frameless Glass Balustrades are safety barriers designed to minimise visual impact whilst providing maximum structural performance and safety.
Our glass balustrades are manufactured by laminating high strength EVA & MPE interlayers between toughened glass layers. Research has shown that the incorporation of a layer of MPE into EVA laminated toughened glass provides significant improvements in stiffness, strength and shear modulus when compared to similar PVB laminated constructions.
Why use frameless glass balustrades?
Tecdur® Frameless Glass Balustrades offer Architects and Specifiers the freedom to explore design possibilities without compromising on barrier safety. Our system for laminating toughened glass allows us to manufacture glass constructions suitable for external free standing balustrade applications. Moreover, Tecdur® balustrades can perform in a range of service conditions which is demonstrated by their capacity to meet the requirements of BS 6180:2011 up to and including 3kN/m line loads.

Why choose us?
Tecdur® Frameless Glass Balustrades combine EVA and MPE interlayers which can potentially reduce the overall thickness of a balustrade, in turn reducing weight and cost. Most important is the fact that unlike PVB, EVA is impervious to moisture/water and will not degrade or delaminate if it's edges are exposed to the elements. Therefore, EVA laminated glass products are ideally suited for exposed edge external applications. In addition, by using thicker toughened glass layers we are able to emulate the performance of SGP based products at the 1.5kN/m and 3.0kN/m levels, but at a lower cost per m2.
Tecdur® Frameless Glass Balustrades supports your vision by providing uncompromising barrier safety with unimpeded views that complement any setting.
