Producer Statement (PS1)
Contemporary balustrade has been introduced primarily for use on outdoor areas,
such as retaining walls that require a balustrade (when there is a fall of over
1m high as per the NZ building code). Contemporary balustrade conforms to NZ Building Code and AS/NZ1170 regulations for residential applications up to 1300mm high and can be top of face fixed. It is suitable for curved runs and raking on retaining walls, but is not suitable for stairs or commercial applications.
Contemporary balustrades use fully welded or rivetted fixed or raking fence panels cut down to the required width, fitted to posts with a maximum centre of 1480mm for fixed panels and
1500mm centres for raking panels at 11°.
