Aluminium balustrades are highly resistant to corrosion and adverse weather conditions, and so they have a very long life span and maintain their flawless appearance. They are light weight and so can be retro-fitted without affecting the structural strength of a building.
They are easily powder coated in a wide range of colours -and metallic or matte finishes. Aluminium needs very little maintenance, even in coastal properties that are affected by sea spray.
Installation uses rivets and screws and the whole assembly can be easily dismantled. All balustrades will have an appropriately designed structure, which will transfer loads and guarantee safety. The height of the barrier, its structure, and infills will be professionally designed to and meet all building requirements where personal safety is an issue.
Weathershield Solutions provide an experienced team of installers that will avoid the kinds of mistakes that inexperienced companies make. This includes using steel fixtures that corrode and stain the aluminium finish, failures follow installation instructions properly sop that the structural integrity is compromised, and not sealing essential elements properly.
Strength & Safety
Aluminium has an excellent strength to weight ratio. Aluminium balustrades are as strong as steel balustrades despite being significantly lighter. The properties of aluminium means that it will remain structurally strong even after being struck hard by an external force. Any significant damage will be immediately noticeable unlike steel where hairline fractures can remain unnoticed.
