Strata Upgrades

Elite Balustrades are specialists in strata upgrades of balustrades and handrails. Whatever reason you’re upgrading – non-compliance, wear and tear, aesthetics etc – we can assist.

CONCRETE CANCER

Sometimes the balustrades and handrails on a strata building need to be replaced due to the metal causing a type of concrete cancer. When this happens, we can work in conjunction with a remedial builder who will fix the concrete cancer so we can install safe new balustrades.

FIRE STAIR UPGRADES

Due to fire code updates many existing internal handrails and fire stair balustrades and handrails are now non-compliant. If you’ve been advised your fire stairs or access stairs are non-compliant, contact Elite Balustrades to arrange an obligation-free site measure and quote.

If you have an existing Elite aluminium balustrade system, you can add a continuous stainless steel handrail to comply with updates to the fire code classifying common staircases as fire escapes.

MAXIMISING VIEWS

Does your existing balustrade inhibit your view? Elite Balustrades can design a compliant system that complements your building design and maximises your view.

FIRE STAIRS NEW BUILDS

In Australia, fire stairs now need to have some degree of accessibility so that people moving through the stairway, including older occupants and people with mobility limitations, can safely evacuate a building.

In May 2013, changes to the Building Code of Australia saw the introduction of mandatory handrail, compliant with A1428.1, in each flight of an exit stair including fire-isolated stairs.

Class 9a Building – healthcare building handrails must be provided along at least one side of every passageway or corridor used by patients.
