Lucideon has introduced a new balustrade testing service for free standing glass, post, rail, spindle and infill balustrades.
The new service will test balustrades to BS 6180:2011 ‘barriers in and about buildings’ and Eurocode 1 to ensure that the temporary or permanent barriers protect people from hazards or restrict access.
Lucideon can test balustrades at its construction laboratory based in Stoke-on-Trent or on-site if the system is already in place.
Lucideon product manager Steve Newman commented on the testing service: “Balustrades can look great in any setting, but without complying with regulations and meeting specifications, they can pose a serious risk. Loading tests ensure the safety and performance of balustrades and their components.”
Lucideon also provides testing services for staircases, balconies, handrails and glass reinforced plastic (GRP) products. The GRP products include canopies, chimneys and dormer windows.
