All Nu-lite balustrading is designed to conform to Australian Standards AS1170 – “Structural Design Actions” and when glass is used AS1288 – “Glass in Buildings – Selection & Installation”.
Designed to the same standards as our balustrading but also compiling with Australian Standard AS1926 – “Swimming Pool Safety”.
Extrusions are manufactured locally using both general purpose alloy 6063-T5 and Structural alloy 6061-T6 where applicable. Aluminium has natural corrosion resistance in it raw form but is generally coated for aesthetics. To provide a 7 Year guarantee all extrusions used in the manufacture of balustrading or pool fencing are pre cut and punched prior to coating so as to alleviate any form of corrosion or paint adhesion failure.
Castings are also manufactured locally in a heat treatable alloy AC601-T5. Due to the characteristics of cast alloy we are unable to anodize products and only provide Powder Coat finishing.
There is a large range of colours available in the powder coat range some of which simulate an anodized finish for those wanting to match colours. Our powder coating conforms to Australian Standard AS3175 “Metal Finishing – Thermoset powder coatings for architectural applications” furthering our commitment to quality.
Marine Grade 316 stainless is used for all external applications. Although using the highest quality stainless product, all stainless over time will tarnish and require some form of cleaning or maintenance. This surface rust in no way affect the structural adequacy of the product used and tends be accelerated in certain conditions such as coastal regions.
All hardware and components are made from either aluminium or stainless steel to ensure a rust free product.
Glass is supplied and installed to Australian Standard AS1288 (2006). Glass thickness from 6mm to 19mm are available to suite any application. Various tints are also available including obscure glass for privacy. Our glass is locally produced and Toughened for strength and safety.
