OnLevel’s glass balustrades: a new trend… and for a good reason
It’s not without reason that glass balustrades are a new trend: They offer an aesthetic, low-maintenance and durable solution for living, working and public spaces. Durable, because glass is one of the best recyclable products, and aesthetic because of the transparency and high-quality look of glass. On top of that, glass is just as pressure strong as concrete, and OnLevel has the expertise to install the glass in such a way that the forces are distributed equally over the glass. For any possible space there is a wide array of choices from the different suitable systems; all stylish, safe, and easy to assemble.
In short, with OnLevel you will find glass balustrades for three functions: living, office, and gathering. For the living function we mean, for example, single-family homes, apartments, but also senior retirement homes. For this function, OnLevel delivers balustrades for, for example, balconies and loggias in all shapes and sizes. These enhance the living experience and give you a panoramic view of the outside while at the same time protecting you from the elements. This also means that renovation can be postponed because the glass also protects the building from wind and rain. Because natural light can come in, energy costs for both lighting and heating can be saved. Good for the environment and your wallet! The glass balustrade in a living function must be able to endure at least 0.5 kN per running meter.
The office function is, for example, a part of a lawyer’s firm, an accountancy firm, a bank building or a city hall. Glass balustrades in this function are stylish and charismatic. Besides that, it is open and light; natural light can come in and energy for lighting can be saved! For the balustrades in this function heavier materials are needed; they must be able to endure at least 1.0 kN per running meter.
The gathering function is a used for the gathering of people for, for example, art, culture, religion or watching sports. Think of a church, theatre, museum or the seats in a sports stadium. Glass balustrades in this function are slimmer than steal constructions. They are low-maintenance and offer a feeling of safety and spaciousness. The intense use of these functions asks for the most robust solutions that can guarantee safety, even if they have a heavy weight to carry. The glass balustrade has to be able to endure at least 3.0 kN per running meter.
For the assembly of glass balustrades, you can choose between profiles and bolted glass panel holders. The surface of which you wish to attach the balustrade to plays an important role in the choice of system. It is also important to know whether it concerns a side mount or a top mount. In our catalogue you can see at a glance which systems can be used in your construction project. All systems are modular, which means you can put together your own package of products. All OnLevel profiles and bolted glass panel holders meet the safety standard and are certified.
