NEACO launch new semi-structural glass balustrade

A stylish and minimalist alternative to traditional balustrade is now available with the launch of Elan, a new semi-structural glass system from NEACO.

Most balustrade designs secure glass infill panels in place by attaching them to the stanchions with a clip, but Elan’s glass panels are secured by a top rail above and a subtle floor channel below. The result is a sleek appearance, an economical use of materials and an easy-to-install solution. Elan is also available as a modular balcony system complete with aluminium grille flooring.

NEACO’s National Sales Manager, Jason, Hensey, said: “Elan offers all the classic characteristics that define our Spectrum balustrade and balcony range – namely its smooth contemporary aesthetics, maintenance-free durability and a modular system which provides exceptional design versatility and enables fast, low-energy construction with no welding or hot works required. Elan top rails and stanchions are powder coated for a non-chip, warm-to-touch finish and the glass is toughened with tinting options available. All of our latest modular balustrade and balcony options will be featured within a comprehensive new brochure which is due for release this summer.” 

Available with a class-leading Lifetime Guarantee, NEACO’s Spectrum range of handrails, balustrade, balconies and structural glass offers a huge choice of modular components. Systems can be specified in stainless steel or aluminium powder coated in a variety of solid colours, metallic colours and intricate wood-effect finishes.
