Our Toughened & Heat Soaked Glass


Our toughened and heat soaked balustrade glass panels are stamped with the Australian Standards logo for your peace of mind. All toughened and heat soaked glass panels supplied by Oxworks comply with AS2208 with test certificates are available for your certifier if required. Balustrade is a safety product and we guarantee you will only receive Grade A Toughened and Heat Soaked Safety Glass for your project.

 

Our Stainless Steel Spigots


Our Frameless Glass Spigots are manufactured from 2205 Stainless Steel which has superior strength and corrosion resistance properties to traditional 316 Stainless Steel.   As the spigots are exposed to weather and environmental elements, you should insist on 2205 Stainless Steel for your Frameless Glass Balustrade to ensure longer life and structural integrity. Our Spigot Range is available in round and square profiles for core-drilled and base-plated applications.

Our Stainless Steel Handrails


We offer a choice of top rails and offset handrails to suit your Frameless Glass Balustrade, with several different profiles in the range.   Handrails are required on all Balustrades to ensure they comply with Australian Standards and the Building Code.  Our top rails and offset handrails are 316L Stainless Steel and modular in design for easy installation.

 

Packaging


All of our glass panels and gates are fully packaged in cardboard boxes with corner protection for safe and easy handling.  Whilst toughened glass is very robust, it is susceptible to chips or breakage during handling and transport to site.  Oxworks is the only glass balustrade supplier who fully package each piece of glass to ensure your order is transported safely and securely.  We regularly ship glass fencing and components all over Australia and are the experts at ensuring your order arrives in perfect condition.

 

Easy to Install DIY Project


Our glass balustrade range is modular in design and very simple to install.   With proper preparation, most balustrades can be installed in a matter of hours.  We provide a full DIY Installation Guide with step by step instructions on how to measure, set out and install your fence with handy trade tips to ensure you successfully complete the project.  You can also ring us anytime for professional guidance and technical advice if required.  Send us a dimensioned ‘mud map’ of your pool area and we can work out everything you need to build your compliant balustrade.

Glass Safety Compliance


As Balustrades are a safety product, they must be manufactured and installed to comply with Australian Standards. Oxworks issue compliance certificates with supporting test reports with every job. These are required by the certifier who does the final inspection on your new home or commercial premises. Our entire range of frameless glass balustrade has been manufactured to exceed AS1170.1 (2002) and AS1288 (2006), and has been independently tested by NATA approved testing laboratories to confirm compliance. We can provide expert advice on how to ensure your balustrade is fully compliant.

Glass Design and Tolerances


Surface treatments

Toughened glass cannot be drilled or edge-worked in any manner. Surface treatments including sand blasting should be carried out prior to toughening.

 

Bowing Allowances – Flatness

Very slight distortion or bowing may occur after toughening but is largely controllable. It will vary with substance, size and shape of the glass. Flatness is measured when the glass is standing on edge, a straight edge placed along the length of the panel and a wedge measurement taken at the centre position. It is to be determined by adherence to requirements for substrates in accordance with AS/NZS2208:1996 & AS/NZS 4667:2000.

Nominal Thickness: 8, 10, 12mm

Annealed Float, Heat Strengthened & Toughened Glass: 1mm every 400mm (5mm Maximum)

 

Visual distortion

The furnacing of glass panels can produce slight corrugated distortion or roller waves. This visual effect is in the form of distortion bands 250–300mm apart. It is more noticeable in tinted and reflective toughened glass. Less visual distortion is evident with a heat strengthened glass.

 

Quench pattern

During the toughening process, glass goes through a quenching phase where it is rapidly cooled by high velocity blasts of air. This process may result in the occasional appearance of a strain pattern or darkish shadows due to slightly higher levels of compression adjacent to the air nozzles. Typically, the “quench pattern” is only visible when wearing polarised sunglasses or by viewing the glass from the inside at acute angles. The confirmed observation of this optical phenomenon is a positive indicator the glass has been thermally treated and is not considered a defect.

 

Plastic Wrap/Packaging

To ensure safe delivery and transport, we use protective packaging on all of our toughened glass. We recommend keeping your packaged glass dry and for any plastic wrap to be removed no later than two weeks after exposure to sunlight.

 

Breakages


Most often, breakage is usually due to incorrect handling, surface damage or excessive loading on toughened glass. However, on very rare occasions, toughened glass can break for what seems to be no apparent reason. A variety of contaminants in the raw stock can lead to problems either during or subsequent to the toughening process.

 

Nickel Sulphide

Microscopic nickel sulphide stones are a rare, undetectable contaminant in raw glass stock. The heating and rapid surface cooling processes of glass toughening is believed to change NiS stones from a stable to unstable state. Heat soaking is a method used to lower the chances of spontaneous breakage.

Heat soaking

Heat soaking involves heating toughened glass in a special oven at temperatures close to 280ºC to 290ºC for several hours to induce breakages that may be caused by inclusions or contaminants in the glass. However heat soaking does not guarantee detection of all inclusions or contaminants that may lead to spontaneous breakages.

Cost of Frameless Glass Balustrade


There are many factors that affect the overall price of the project, including size of the job, number of gates, size of panels used, configuration of fence, site access, change in levels or sloping ground etc, so please use this as a budgeting & comparison guide only. Oxworks will always provide you with an itemised quote for all components required to complete your project.  Trade pricing and project rates are also available on our entire range.
