ABOUT PRODUCT RANGE
Heat Soaked Glass Panels
What is Heat Soaked Glass?
Heat soaking is a secondary process, completed after the glass has already been toughened and is undertaken to prevent any later problems.
The process involves a specialised oven that heats the processed glass to 290°C and holds it at temperature for 2 hours. This eliminates up to 95% of spontaneous breakage problems without interfering with the positive properties that toughened glass brings to many projects.
Guardian Balustrade systems utilise heat soaked glass to provide the safest glass on decking areas with more than 1m fall (complies with European Safety Standard EN14179)
Stainless Steel Components
All spigot components are cast in 2205 Duplex Stainless Steel to withstand the outdoor elements and are compliant with NZS 3604:2011.
Please note: 316 Grade Stainless Steel components may discolour over time. This can be minimised and removed by following correct care and maintenance procedures.
