    Balustrade Sydney – Elite Balustrades Commercial Update

    Balustrade Sydney – Elite Balustrades Commercial Update

    Take a look at a few of our recently completed commercial projects below:

    In conjunction with one of our most valued contractors, Elite Balustrades were thrilled to contribute to the refurbishment of this major Sydney Shopping Hub. Our main challenge was the highly visible stainless steel flashing to the edge of the entire floor slab. We also manufactured and installed seamless stainless steel and glass balustrades to all of the void areas. The end result is unobtrusive – and impressive. See our portfolio photos for the project here

    work safe balustrade, Elite Balustrades

    The Ultimate Work Safe Balustrade System

    The Ultimate Work Safe Balustrade System

    Presenting the ultimate work safe balustrade system. Elite Balustrades’ Aluminium and glass balustrade is unique – in the fact that it provides immediate work safety once installed.

    You may have seen countless balustrades in the process of installation among Sydney’s crane filled skyline. Driving around, I see huge buildings with balustrade posts and handrail installed (sometimes for weeks or even months on end), just sitting there waiting for glass. Considering the business we are in I often wonder how much this costs the main contractor? Obviously no one can have any access at all to the balconies over this period.

    Not only that, the balustrade contractor needs to schedule a separate visit to site to install the glass. Whilst this may be ok on a new building – what if the building is occupied? I know from experience how difficult it can be to cost effectively program a project when residents are occupying the space. Arranging a second visit, and arranging separate access from each unit occupier for the second time would surely blow out the cost.

    Here’s the thing about Elite Balustrades’ Aluminium & Glass balustrades. It is the ultimate work safe balustrade. In most instances we require only ONE visit to site to install balustrades. Our balustrade panels are pre fabricated in our factory, with the glass already fitted. As soon as the panel is installed it is work safe. No further need for scaffolding, and no need to have balconies uninhabitable for long periods.

    So there you have it. Next time you consider a lower cost contractor, factor in the time and access issues. I know I’d much rather have the job finished and be enjoying a drink on my new balcony, instead of waiting around for someone to install my glass.

    Cheers!

    Our guys have been busy on site replacing on old timber staircase. We custom made a galvanised mild steel staircase and balustrade to take its place. See some pictures below of the process. The new steel staircase, including 3 flights and landings, features a chequer plate tread. Safe & strong – the customer now has a new staircase , which functions as an access stair and fire escape. The galvanised mild steel balustrade was also custom made and welded into place on site.
