HOW DO I PREVENT WATER INGRESS WHEN INSTALLING OUTSIDE?

Thursday December 14, 2023

The channel is not waterproof and will need to have a system to disperse water.

Rainwater can run into the balustrade channel and into the drill holes, causing water ingress in the building structure below. One option to mitigate this would be to drill a 6mm hole in an endcap to allow water to escape. Alternatively, invest in a balcony seal kit which contains drain blocks that hold the channel 10mm above the substrate, allowing free water drainage whilst creating a watertight layer over the bolt holes.

For further reading on this subject take a look at our blog, ‘Preventing Water Ingress on an Exterior Balustrade Installation‘.
