Steel Top Fixing Method

With Top Fixed methods, the balustrade is attached directly to the top surface of the substrate. With the Aluma and Eclipse Vogue series, a baseplate is structurally attached to the base of the posts, which in turn is fastened down to the substrate. This method mostly gives a strong connection to the substrate and gives a tidy appearance when looking towards the building.

Steel Side Fixing Method

A steel substrate construction provides the most stable substrate and is particularly well suited to the frameless glass styles where post-construction movement of the substrate must be minimal.
