Frameless Glass Balustrade Installation in Rock, Cornwall.
St. Enodoc golf club is famous for its panoramic views, perfect lawns and luxury days out.
In between the Cornish rain showers this team of Camel Glass installers managed to install the MEGAgrip frameless glass balustrade to the newly refurbished roof terrace at St Enodoc golf club. A strong glass outdoor safety barrier providing shelter from the wind to people outdoors enjoying the view of the sea and watching the golf.
The customers wanted a commercial grade frameless glass balustrade with no handrails, instead of the traditional style of galvanized railing. MEGAgrip was used in this situation due to its force loading capability and ability to hold Centryglas ensuring it’s safe to use at this height and location.
This MEGAgrip safety screen posed some challenges for Andrew, John and John, the installers, the heavy glass needed to be taken high in the air to reach the scaffolding platform. Using a telehandler they managed, to lift the glass safely into position. However, there was another challenge waiting, the initial installation of steel was slightly misshapen, meaning the original fitters had to return to rectify the problem and therefore delayed the glass balustrade completion.
Even so, the MEGAgrip installation was completed successfully and fulfilled the customer brief. Now, the balcony is a very enjoyable spot to sit and watch the golfers on the course.
MEGAgrip uses a variation of our popular POSIglaze patented screw-clamp technology to secure the glass in place. The system uses a 13mm Hex Bolt and ¼ inch torque wrench and extension arm to tighten the bolts, for a quick and simple installation. Internal glass clamps allow for easy alignment of the glass within the channel, and are compatible with a wide range of glass thicknesses making MEGAgrip one of the most adaptable balustrade systems on the market today and is available in both base-fix and side-fix. It can easily be further fortified with a simple conversion kit, to become a bomb-resistant or bulletproof balustrade system. MEGAgrip is ideal for use as a public space barrier in busy locations such as transport hubs and venues, where there is a risk of overcrowding.
