Curved glass cost effective balustrades and railings for beautiful balconies and terraces with clear views.
The curve radii
In most cases the minimum curve radii of glass balustrades is 1.6 metres to the inside of the handrail.
We recommend using Orbit Glass Railing System for curved glass balustrades since it is more suitable for bending and installation. It is possible to bend Aerofoil Glass Railing System as well, but in this case senior technical personnels consultation is needed in order to ascertain whether it is feasible due to the technical limitations.
Railing paint finishes and anodizing
For curved glass balustrades it is recommended to use painted or powder coated railing finishes rather than anodised finishes. Anodised finishes have a hard brittle surface and may crack during the bending process showing visible stretch marks on the railing.
The paint finishes of curved railings can stretch and don’t have any issue. That is why it is better to use a paint finish, a white colour or a RAL colour.
Curved glass balustrades installation is more complex than straight banisters and requires experience. We recommend to employ an experienced installer who has fitted curved systems and will be able to deal with curved panels adjustments and manipulations and overcome any problem encountered without having to refer to our support team.
