Quick DIY Guide
1. Site Plan & Ordering
Decide on fence position and measurements of panels & posts by creating a mud map of your site. Following the above Materials Checklist, calculate how many of each component you require Contact any one of our stores to complete your order. Most items are available in stock
2. String Line & Post Holes
Set Stringline along the desired line of the balustrade, keeping close to the ground Measure out all holes, mark out post core hole positions or screw positions, depending on the post type you are using
3. Install Posts
Ensure post hole centres are accurate according to the below top view diagram Ensure posts are flush and level along stringline then fix in place using the appropriate method to suit your post type Ensure the top of the Snap-In-Channels are no more than 90mm above ground level If you are using post cover rings, place them over the posts
4. Install Panels
Place Seating Grommets on top of snap in – Seating Grommets and Glazing rubber are found in the Panel Glazing Kit Carefully slide Glass panel into post channels, resting it on the Seating Grommets Set glass into place using Glazing Rubber on each side and each face of the panel – you can use a mild detergent to lubricate the rubber and push it tightly into place
5. Install Gate(s)
Attach hinge & latch components of the Semi-Frameless Gate Kit to 8mm Glass Gate as per instructions Attach hinge & latch components of the Semi-Frameless Gate Kit to the Glazing posts as per instructions Ensure the gate self closes automatically using tension pin to adjust spring
General Glass Information
Glass Design and Tolerances
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)
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
