Balustrade Replacement

Balustrade Replacement Services

Prior to repair, it is crucial to first determine if your balustrade is compliant with the building code of Australia (BCA)MJ Engineering Projects are experienced in determining non-compliant balustrades that pose safety concerns and provide solutions for repair in a manner that is both compliant with Australian Standards and cost-effective.

Reasons To Upgrade Your Balustrades

Material damage, balustrade modernization and building code requirements are all reasons why balcony balustrades need to be replaced. A new look can be given to your property by replacing worn out, rotting or rusting parts or by replacing the balustrade railings for balcony designs and styles. Balustrades don’t just add style, they also serve as safety barriers. Glass balustrades are the epitome of beauty, and wood balustrades combine the natural beauty of wood with the sharpness of metal for a balustrade that can protect someone from injuries if they fall. Therefore, you should consult a remedial engineer to check if you need a balustrade replacement.

Balcony balustrades, staircases, and balustrade railings provide homeowners with the opportunity to upgrade their homes. You don’t have to tear down the handrails or newels on your existing balcony or staircase to replace your balustrades. Replacement of an ageing or damaged balustrade can be an inexpensive and quick solution. A glass balustrade provides safety while adding value to your stairway or balcony with a sleek modern appearance.

Common safety issues that are non-compliant with Australian Standards include:

  1. Balustrades should be 1 meter from the finished surface level
  2. A maximum spacing of 125 millimetres between balusters/openings for young occupants’ safety
  3. Single skin brick balustrades are non-compliant and pose a safety concern
