NHBC Accepted Fire Rated Structural Glass Balustrade
In anticipation of the revised building regulations post Grenfell (which now outlaw the use of laminated glass in balustrade on multi storey developments) the AMI design team and our associated engineers have developed the first fire rated structural glass balustrade system accepted by the NHBC. This system is supported with full structural calculations, PI insurance and a 10-year warranty.
We believe this is a first nationally and as a market leader in balcony & balustrade for high rise developments we are seeking new projects where we can offer this product as a quick and immediately ready solution to the new regulation demands. We would be glad to discuss any potential projects with you or your designers where our new system would be of benefit. Should you wish to find out more please do not hesitate to get in touch for more details.
AMI are delighted to be working with AHH – Affordable Housing & Healthcare Group on their Quantock House Project. Works commenced on site in November 2020 with AMI appointed to design manufacture and install 750m of our Fire-Tek balustrade to all reinforced concrete balconies.
AHH’s Peter McLarty said: “After considerable market research by myself the only company I found offering Fire rated structural glass Balustrade was AMI with their Fire-Tek system. I was shocked how reasonable their pricing was, considering they had such a unique offering, now a few months in they have proved easy to work with and I would have no hesitation in recommending them."
