Do You Need a Glass Balustrade Gate?

Sometimes when planning on getting a balustrade, you need to consider whether you need to access the area behind it.

If you don’t have stairs or a planned space to get through, that’s when a balustrade gate comes in handy!


SHS Latch and Hinge for Gates

There are a number of options when it comes to balustrade gates, so you’re sure to find something that fits your requirements.

The systems that we can incorporate gates into are the ProfessionalElegance and Pinion. The gates we offer for glass balustrades consist of stylish, architectural-quality gate hinges and a latch. The 8mm clear glass is perfect for keeping full visibility while still having the security of a gate.


Easy Install Hinges

The hinges are made from tough polymers and the covers are finished with protected metal surfacing which guards against rust, binding, sagging, staining and chipping. Each pair of glass hinges is supplied with a handy installation kit and can close glass gates weighing up to 25kg!

The hinges are attached in two places on the post (top and bottom) and hold the balustrade gate steady in a similar fashion to how glass clamps would. These self-closing hinges are spring-loaded and gently swing the gate closed when released. The self-closing tension can be adjusted, too. Opposite but in line with the hinges, the latch is the part to keep your balustrade gate closed – it couldn’t be simpler!
