MEGAgrip

Introduction // MEGAgrip Frameless Glass Balustrade // Page - 6

MEGAgrip is Pure Vista’s answer to a heavy-duty and fully adjustable 3kN commercial balustrade system, designed as a highly-durable public safety barrier for large commercial constructs.

MEGAgrip uses a variation of our popular POSIglaze screw-clamp technology to secure the glass in place. The system uses a 13mm Hex Bolt and ¼ inch torque wrench and extension arm to tighten the bolts, for a quick and simple installation. Internal glass clamps allow for easy alignment of the glass within the channel, and are compatible with a wide range of glass thicknesses, making MEGAgrip one of the most adaptable balustrade systems on the market today. It can easily be further fortified with a simple conversion kit, to become a bomb-resistant or bullet-proof balustrade system. MEGAgrip is ideal for use as a public space barrier in busy locations such as transport hubs and venues, where there is a risk of overcrowding. MEGAgrip can be either base-fixed or side-fixed.

Key Benefits // MEGAgrip Frameless Glass Balustrade // Page - 8

FAST AND EASY TO INSTALL AND ADJUST

One of the most simple balustrade systems to fit and adjust thanks to its patented screw-clamp technology. Dry glazed where no specialist tools are required. Glass can easily be removed and replaced if required.

FULLY ACCREDITED UP TO 3.00kN

MEGAgrip is accredited and approved by multiple organisations to verify that it meets national and international building regulations for use as edge protection, where up to 3.00kN force loading is required.

LIGHTWEIGHT AND STRONG

Precision engineered using extruded aluminum with a geometrically hollowed out core, providing an incredible strength to weight ratio. For added protection MEGAgrip is anodised to 25 microns.

APPROPRIATE FOR COMMERCIAL AND ANTI-TERROR USES

With 3.00kN force loading capability, MEGAgrip is a commercially appropriate product which can be fortified using conversion kits into bomb-resistant or bullet-proof balustrade systems.

CAN BE USED WITH A WIDE RANGE OF GLASS TYPES

MEGAgrip is a highly versatile product which can be used with glass thicknesses ranging from 25mm - 33mm, using either toughened glass, toughened PVB laminate glass or SentryGlas.

GLASS IS EASY TO REMOVE AND CHANGE POST USE

MEGAgrip is as easy to assemble as it is to disassemble, making it simple to install replacement glass panels following use as a bombresistant or bullet-proof barrier.

MEGAgrip

Installation Guide // MEGAgrip Frameless Glass Balustrade // Page - 24

MEGAgrip is one of the most simple balustrade channel systems to install and adjust with its screw-clamp technology. These step by step instructions guide you through the installation process.

1. FIT THE CHANNEL

Drill bolt holes into your substrate starting at 100mm from the edge and then at 200mm intervals thereafter. Lay the channel on top aligning it with your drilled holes. Fix the channel using an appropriate bolt.

2. CLAMP THE GLASS

Make up the clamps by loosely slotting the left and right hand sides together. Clamp these to the bottom edge of the glass at 250mm intervals, starting at 125mm from the first side edge. Squeeze the clamps tight around the glass and place the glass into the channel.

3. FIT THE BARS

Assemble the MEGAhooks, nuts and bars so that the wide side of the bar is at the top next to the nut, with the MEGAhook below. Drop these, MEGAhooks down, either side of each glass

clamp so that the lip on the MEGAhook hooks into the wall of the channel.

4. ADJUST THE GLASS

With the bolts loosely in place, the glass panel can tilt in either direction. Align the panel as required, then tighten the nuts using a torque wrench. A threadlocker can provide added security.

5. ADD TOP BEAD

Top bead and gasket simply slides or clips onto the top edge of the channel.

6. FINISH INSTALLATION

Your installation is complete!

Accessories

At Pure Vista we manufacture and supply everything you need to install your glass balustrade system, from bolts to cladding and end caps to drain blocks. We also supply BALCONYseal® kits, to ensure that outdoor balustrade installations are kept watertight. You will find some standard tools in our web shop, although these can be obtained from any good DIY store.

R- LOCK

A new and highly innovative one-side-fit balustrade system which can achieve up to 0.74kN for domestic installations. The one-side-fit system enables R-LOCK to be used on high-rise balconies and other locations where gaining access to the outside edge of the channel is challenging. The system uses resin to set it but in controlled measures that allows the glass to be removed easily, if required.

POSIglaze

The most popular domestic to light commercial crossover product in the range, POSIglaze uses a similar screw-clamp technology to MEGAgrip, making it extremely easy to fit and align the glass. It achieves up to 1.50kN and can be used on uneven surfaces, thanks to the adjustment capability of the system.

SPIG-LITEadvanced

Very easy to stock, dispatch and install due to it being a spigot-based, as opposed to channel-based, configuration. Ideal for domestic installations where up to 0.74kN force loading capability is required. Without a channel, there is a greater percentage of glass visible to maximise your view and the individual spigots allow for free flow water drainage making this system perfect for wet areas such as a poolside.
