design elements


40

Stainless steel SHS stanchions support glass infill panels on through-glass patch-fittings in this design. Off-stand cylindrical bodies may be extended so as to allow the glass to overhang the edge of the void or staircase. The neutral tones of stainless steel and glass combine easily with a variety of other materials, such as timber or stone. Handrail (50.8mm CHS typical) is generally mounted vertically on a mounting pin above the stanchion, so that the handrail and stanchion centrelines coincide. The Arden C8 balustrade design offers the flexibility to complement many types of staircase or balustrade configuration, resulting in a clean, crisp and modern finish.

In terms of design then, the size and spacing of the stanchions are determined to suit the applicable balustrade load as defined by AS1170.12002 (Structural design actions), which defines the applicable loads for particular applications. The infill glass loads are also defined in the Australian Standard for the particular application and the sizing of the infill glass is then provided by AS1288-2006 (Glass in buildings, selection and installation).

21

The C8 balustrade style is essentially a stanchion based balustrade system with infill glass supported off patch fittings mounted on the stanchions. The primary balustrade loads are carried by the handrail directly to the stanchions, and not via the glass, which reduces the design criteria of the glass to effectively that of “infill glass” as opposed to structural glass.

The C8 balustrade style can have a number of other variations that can be dependent upon the application environment, where the base materials may determine the style of stanchion fixing (e.g. void edge face fix as opposed to top fix) and may then also determine line of the stanchions relative to the void edge. Dependent upon preferences then, considerations such as the length of patch-fitting offstand may become a factor.

It should be noted then that the final design in terms of stanchion spacing may be determined by issues in respect to the handrail loads as well as the span of the infill glass.

Notes 1. These tables are to be used as a general design guide only. 2. Individual project requirements will dictate final glass specification and thickness. 3. All spans nominated are indicative of normal internal conditions. In some exposed situations, wind loads may exceed design load and thicker glass or smaller spans may be required.

design standards for glass panels

glass balustrade styles

Glass balustrade panels must satisfy engineering requirements as specified in AS1288, and the Arden balustrade styles shown here are defined and specified with regard to the relevant design standards.

Cantilevered structural. Glass panels supporting an interlinking handrail cantilever from an appropriate floor fixing.

H

E

Of particular importance in the initial design stage, it is critical to maintain an awareness of the designation of glass panels as structural or infill, and the classification of handrail as loadsupporting, non-load-supporting, or interlinking. Combined with other considerations (e.g. whether or not mechanical point-fixings are specified, span is cantilevered or supported on both sides), this determines the grade of glass (e.g. laminated annealed, toughened safety, laminated toughened) and type of handrail that satisfies the code.

C8 G

As in other aspects of stair and balustrade design, Arden will advise with respect to the practicability of preliminary designs with respect to Australian standards.

Semi-framed lateral channel. Glass panels are fixed via proprietary or custom channel system on the bottom rail and underside of handrail.

Two-edge clasp. Glass panels are supported on two opposite edges by clasp-style mechanical fixings. The bearing of point loads influence the required grade of glass.

Semi-framed vertical channel. Glass panels are fixed via proprietary or custom channel system on each side.

www.arden.net.au

Two-side patch-fitting. Glass panels are supported on two opposite sides by through-glass mechanical fixings. The bearing of point loads influence the required grade of glass. Stanchions may be located between, or at intermediate locations within, each panel span.

Fully framed. Glass panels are provided with four-edge support and are therefore rated as infill only.

About this document

Applicability

C8

design note For all commercial applications, it is important that sufficient space for the stairwell cavity be allowed to satisfy Australian Standards and BCA requirements. The footprint is primarily driven by the floor to floor rise, as well as the staircase configuration chosen. However, stringer and balustrade style design may increase the amount of space required. Allowing too small a cavity can restrict the design options of the staircase. Also, points at where the staircase interacts with other structures are best addressed early in the design cycle. Consultation with Arden early on will help ensure that these design issues can be addressed in a cost-effective manner.
